Below are several cute butterfly diaper cakes submitted by readers! We have ladybug diaper cakes too! Hope these cakes inspire you to make the best diaper cake around!
I made this diaper cake for my youngest sister. Her theme was yellow/purple/pink and butterflies for her baby girl on the way.
I made a 4 tiered diaper cake out of 2 pkgs. of size 2 Huggies natural diapers. I like them because they are quality diapers with less dye than most others.I used a poster tube for the support in the middle.
I rolled the artificial flowers in a diaper and put it is the top of the tube. I used a extra large rubber band to hold the diapers in the 2 bottom tiers and a large for the 3rd tier and a medium for the top tier.
I glued all the ribbon layers together before placing on the diaper cake and only hot glued the very ends that overlapped. I used butterflies on the flowers and ribbon to give it that last touch. This was very easy and simple and I think turned out cute.
First I started with two Gerber glass bottles, filled with knick knacks for baby and a personal note to my sister..I started rolling diapers around the bottle using elastics and when i got a big enough base, repeated to a second,third and forth level.
I bought wooden letters painted them in the different colors then painted a sparkle over top to add some fun. I used wooden dowels to keep the layers together as well as the two baby bottles in the middle of the cake which you cannot see.
I then attached "giggle" letters on the bottom to match the top letters "baby" Using flower petals and push pins i started inserting flowers randomly throughout the cake as well as beautiful butterflies. The ribbon around the cake is to hide the elastics and makes the "gender neutral" look come together.
