Baby Shower Tree

I had a baby shower for a friend before I could take my Christmas tree down. I just took off the decorations and replaced them with ribbons, booties, bottles, socks, pacifiers, ect. Oh and a big fluffy bow, in baby colors draped from the top down the sides. Also, paint clothes pins or use diaper pins and the guests can pin on money.

It was such a good idea and was raved over.

Baby Diaper Tool Kit

by Kim

Baby Diaper Tool Kit

Baby Diaper Tool Kit

Here is a great twist for a "Baby Diaper Tool Kit"

Instead of a diaper belt for the new father to be, I used a cheap tool box and filled it with the baby stuff. (wipes, diapers, lotion, baby oil, socks, baby brush, diaper rash ointment, etc.)

This way they can re-use the tool box instead of an apron which was brought to my attention they would just throw in a corner.

I didn't take a picture of the diaper tool kit, but found one similar to the one I made - I found it on Pinterest but the link didn't go to a website, so I am not sure of the source.

That's a very good idea. Especially for a little boy! Just put some little tool stickers or fishing stickers on 'em and you're good to go! For a little girl, I used a shower caddy and frilled it up. Turned out great!

Tool box
by: Anonymous

I did the same thing for my son. He loved it. You're right he would have thrown the apron in a closet and never used it. This way he will use the tool box for tools and get many uses out of it.

Diaper Butterflies

by Wendy Hatfield
(Sumter, SC, USA)

Diaper Butterflies

Diaper Butterflies

To make my diaper butterflies, I first take one diaper (I usually use size one but have had requests for larger ones and did those as well), a baby washcloth, some tulle, and a chenille stem.

I roll the baby washcloth up with the stem folded in half sticking out the top of the washcloth, and then I take four small pieces of ribbon and tie them around the washcloth to keep it secure, and take a long piece of ribbon to tie around the diaper to keep the washcloth (the butterfly's 'body') in place.

The tulle is simply tucked underneath the washcloth 'body', and no glue or tape is used, this way the new Mom can use both the diaper and the washcloth! When done attaching everything, I just bend the chenille stem to look like antenna and it's all done. The creator of these cute baby shower favors is me, Wendy, owner of Diaper Cakes By Wendy. :)

When i saw these I said to myself, I have to take the time to make these for my sisters shower. She lost her first baby and was really sad but god is great because after that he blessed her with twin baby girls. I can't wait for her to see them. I was very careful so she could reuse everthing but if I know her she won't ever take them apart there just too cute. Thanks you for being so creative.

"POP" Corn Guest Favors

by Racheal Bratten
(Kentucky)

popcorn baby shower favors

popcorn baby shower favors

I made these popcorn baby shower favors for my baby shower. I wanted something unique and different and something that was personalized to show guests that I appreciated them sharing the day with me and helping my husband and I in preparing for our daughters arrival.

What you'll need:

- Boxed Pop Corn Individually Wrapped
- Colored Printer Paper In Your Choice Of Color
- Ribbon (Small Or Large Width Your Choice)
- Craft Scissors
- Tape
- Hole Punch

We used the phrase "Thank You For Helping My Mommy And Daddy Prepare For When I "POP" Into The World" but there are many catchy phrases that you could come up with such as "Mary Is About To "POP" depending on what your prefer.

Once you've chosen a phrase find, the font you would like to use and print the phrase in the center of the sheet of paper (it will take one sheet of paper per pop corn baggie).

After printed use craft scissors to cut each side of the paper to the same size of the pop corn bag (width wise) once cut tape the end of the paper to the back side of the pop corn baggie leaving the plastic on each bag so it remains fresh - making sure that the wording appears on the front side in the middle of the bag.

Now flip the bag over use your hand to fold the paper over the top and make a small crease where the paper will bend once you wrap it completely around after you've made the crease then take your hole punch and make two holes about and inch apart at the top of the paper for the bows to thread through, after you've punched the holes place a small piece of tape over them on the front and back and punch the holes again this prevents the paper from tearing when putting your thread through.

After your holes are done run your ribbon through, flip your baggies over and wrap the remaining paper around and tape it in the back. Flip it back over and tie your bow. And you've got a quick guest favor that's sure to please..

Hope you enjoy,
Best Wishes

the size of the favor would determine how big the piece of material. after dunking the flannel in wax put on wax paper to dry. some shaping may be required . they are very cute. and have been around for awile. when i had my first baby 34 years ago, my grandmothers made these. when one of my grandchildren were born , this again was the favor. in addition to nuts and mints we put in the tiny gummi bears.

Diaper Favor
by: Auntie2be

We use to make these for all the baby showers - one twist is to add a little (poop) smudge in the bottom of the finished formed diaper, either inside or outside depending on what the favor is filled with. The lucky owner of the messy diaper got a small prize. For larger groups, have several messy diapers.

Flannel Diapers
by: Grannyspice

I believe we used to cut the flannel in small triangles......We then folded them like a diaper, and pinned the front with small safety pins. The bigger the flannel is cut, the bigger the diaper, and the bigger the pins need to be..... We then dipped them in regular wax (melted) and sat them on waxed paper to dry..... Then fill with nuts or mints.....So cute!!!! Wax is found in any grocery store.

Mint Book party favors

by Heather S
(Valley, AL, US)

Mint Books in Mason Jar

Mint Books in Mason Jar

Mint Book party favors

I made mint books using and excel and card stock. The card stock is thick enough to support the weight of the mint and hold the bend. I used clip art for the picture on the front and typed a little thank you message on the bac, The top has the date of the shower and the bottom flap has the baby's name on it. On the inside is a individually wrapped livesaver mint secured with a staple. You could use stick dots but I've found that if you use the staple at the bottom it helps hold the flap secure. I prefer the sweet mint flavor because it tastes good and smells good too.You could use any flavor or color you want to coordinate with your theme.

To hold the mint books I founds some quart sized mason jars and painted polka dots on them using the shower theme colors. Then i decorated with curling ribbon. The paint comes off of the glass fairly easily to mistakes can be corrected and the jars can be re-used.

A new twist on baby shower decorations

by Michelle Dobson
(Palmer, Alaska )

I was hosting a baby shower and I decided to make a decorative twist to the typical clothesline:

Instead of hanging baby clothes on a clothesline, I cut out large letters spelling out the baby's name and using miniature clothespins, I clipped them to a ribbon strung up between 2 doves cut out from card stock / scrapbook paper and stapled to the wall. Very unexpected!

Such a cute baby shower decoration idea -

In addition to adding the letter you could...

also have guests decorate onesies and then hang them on the clothesline.

Or you can hang all of the clothes the mom to be opens on the clothesline for everyone to see. This way you won't have to pass the new baby clothes all around the room where everyone touches them and could possibly get them dirty.

If you are having a specific theme - such as moon and stars for example - you could cut out shapes of moons and stars and hang them up too!

So many cute possibilities!

Baby Advice Book

New Baby Advice Book

Before the shower, go to the craft store and buy a scrapbook, or some type of book that you can decorate with pretty paper.

Throughout the shower, pass the book around the room and have the guests write down congratulations, old memories and baby advice on the best ways to help with the baby.

Give to the mom and have her read all of the pages out loud. Fun to hear everybody's advice.

Sometimes it is hard to think of something off the top of your head to write in these books. Give the guests some time to think of good advice and maybe add an extra special sentiment like a poem or something. I did mine in a cheap photo album and sent out index cards and stickers that matched the shower theme.

hunny pot favors for "winnie the pooh"

by Sue Ringo
(Staunton, il 62088)

Buy fiber based flower seedling pots.

Paint to your theme colors, only on the outside.

For the honey, i used butterscotch discs, keep in the wrappers.

Buy stick-on bee's. I used the foam type.

If you can find the fuzzy bee's with the webbed wings, that's fine too.

After the pots are dry, glue on the bee's.

With marker or gloss black paint, write H U N N Y., let dry.

With floral wire, curl a piece to fit inside the pot, cover with butterscotch discs, leaving 2 inches at the top to place a bee on the wire.

Wrap with ribbon and make a bow.

Baby Shower Balloon Weights

by Jessi K

Baby Jar Balloon Weights

Take clean, empty baby food jars and paint the lids blue or pink, or cover them with the appropriately colored paper.

Make a small hole in the lid and thread ribbon (with the balloons attached) through, making a knot on the inside of the lid so the ribbon won't go back through the hole.

Add candies or colorful stones to fill the baby jar. Twist the lid on, and there you go!

Beautiful little balloon weights that cost less than if you were to buy them at the store.

5. put all together the 6 mini towels and cover it

6. make a ribbon on top of the clear plastic and wrap the chopsticks on side then presto you've got a new California maki mini towel..

Great thing for making gifts this coming Xmas or any occasions.

Bundle of Joy Baby Shower Craft

Take a plain clay flower pot and paint it in whatever colors you like (blue, pink, etc.), use foam for the head, hands and feet, stuff the outfit with pillow stuffing and glue the arms and legs to the pot.

Put anything you want into the pot (washcloths, baby food items, etc.). Place a hat on the head, pacifier in the mouth, booties or socks on the feet and paint on some cute eyes and a nose :)

Replies to Latest Questions :)

What I did was use hot glue on the ribbons I had tied around the arms & legs (hint: tie them tightly to hold the mittens & shoes inside clothing arms & legs!!). That way you can untie the ribbons holding everything together and the clothing will come free, but the ribbons will still be glued to the pot (hot glue peels off fairly easily though, in the case that you want to re-use the pot).

And as far as the color I used on the face, it wasn't a specific color, I just mixed bright orange with a little bit of white to mak it a peachy color (I didn't haave a peach on hand!).

Hope this helps! Happy crafting!! :)

In order to make the head, I just painted a plain old styrofoam ball with peach acrylic paint, and make a hole big enough to place the binkie in. Hope this helps! Happy crafting! :)

Crafty Clothes Pins Party Favor

by Racheal Bratten
(Kentucky)

Crafty Clothes Pins Party Favor

Crafty Clothes Pins Party Favor

I've done this for several Baby Shower's I've thrown and it's a huge hit.

Crafty Clothes Pins Party Favor

What you'll need:

- Wooden Clothes Pins (One Per Person)
- Craft paint in the colors of Baby Shower
- Small floss ribbon 1/8th inch in coordinating colors
- Small paint brushes
- Small magnets
- Super Glue or Hot Glue Gun

Paint each clothes pin in a base color that matches the Baby Shower once dry then paint polka dots, swirls, zig-zags, whatever you wish in a different color. Once dry take the coordinating ribbon and tie bows around each clothes pin right above the spring you can also use small plastic pacifiers or saftey pins on them or print out a small note that says "Baby" and polk a whole through the end of the paper or use hole in plastic pacifiers or saftey pins to thread the ribbon through it then tie a bow. Once you've tied the bows flip the clothes pin over and hot glue or super glue one magnet to the back of the pin.

At the shower play the game, "Dont Say The Word Baby" using clothes pins each person gets one to start, if they say "Baby" and someone hears, the person that heard gets there clothes pin the person with the most clothes pins at the end of shower wins.

- After the game is over and the winner is announced have everyone give there clothes pins back to the person they got them from.

- The clothes pins work for hanging on the refrigerator to hold bills, reminder notes, etc. or guests can use them for chip bag clips etc. it will be a reminder of a home made gift they got from the shower..

Best Wishes

The ribbons really do make a world of difference, I thought mine looked like crap, but once I made the bows, they turned out so cute. I did some really neat things with mine and no two are alike. This was a great and CHEAP idea.

Baby Shower for Twins
by: Missmacy06

I just wanted to share a great baby shower experience with everyone!

I was invited to a baby shower for Sarah, a friend of mine who is having twins. The hostess, who is also a dear friend of mine, was so creative with the invitations! She had the invitations printed on onesies! What a cute and creative way to invite people to a baby shower!

This baby shower was so well thought out and planned. It was one of the best baby showers that I have ever been to! I just have to share these ideas with you!

Sarah is having twins (1 boy and 1 girl). The hostess put out 2 receiving blankets (they were trimmed in Pink and Blue) by the entrance. She had a little basket of fabric markers for everyone to leave a personal message on each blanket as they arrived. I thought this was such a thoughtful and great gift to the family.

Next, the decorations: there were small Diaper Cakes everywhere that were made out of onesies, tees and little hats. There was a mix of the traditional baby colors all over the place.

Each table though, had its own color theme, aside from the normal baby colors. One table had a Fuchsia theme, another one had an animal print theme and so on... On each table, there was a mix of styles and sizes that all of the guests could decorate and customize. Heaven only knows how helpful it will be for Sarah and Mitch to have such an abundance of clothes as the twins grow. We all know how fast and expensive it is.

Overall this was such a pleasant baby shower experience that I couldn’t help but ask where she got all of the supplies and to my surprise, she was able to get everything from one company! I know for sure that when I plan my sister’s baby shower next fall I will definitely be using KidsBlanks.com to do something similar to what my friend did with this shower. It was seriously one of the best showers ever! And to top it all off, the parents-to-be have a huge variety of great blank and customized baby clothes for their twins now!

Birthday Cards
by: Brenda P.

I found the idea of guests making birthday cards for the baby a few years ago online. I hosted a shower and set out my scrapbooking stickers, card stock, markers, stencils, scissors, glue sticks and old greeting cards (can cut out small pictures or words from them). As soon as guests arrived, they were instructed to begin making a birthday card for the new little one. They would put Happy 1st (13th, 16th - what ever year they choose.) If they aren't finished when you are ready to start the shower activities, they can set it aside and finish during refreshment time. It is a neat way for friends and family to bless and encourage a child in years to come.
