There are a ton of different types of diaper cakes  and I enjoyed making the DIY Bassinet Diaper Cake so much that decided to DSC 0691 300x188 DIY Sleeping Baby Diaper Caketry making another one. I know there are a ton to choose from but I fell in love with the sleeping baby diaper cake, so that’s the one I chose to take on next.:-) This DIY Sleeping Baby Diaper Cake was soooo easy, it literally only took me about 20 minutes to make. I swear I’m going to make a diaper cake for every baby shower I attend, I think they are such creative gifts full of fun and useful items that any baby will get plenty of use out of. If you love letting your creative side out and are looking for a handmade baby shower gift you MUST try this DIY Sleeping Baby Diaper Cake.

Okay, here is what you will need:

  • 23 Size 1 Diapers
  • Newborn Sleeper
  • Newborn Hat
  • Paci
  • Rubber bands
  • 2 Paperclips

Step 1: Make the Baby’s Butt. Start by taking 1 diaper and rolling it into a tight roll.

Roll those diapers into another diaper. Do that until you’ve rolled 8 diapers into 1. Then wrap a rubber band around the 8 rolled diapers to hold it in place. It will look like this when you are done

Step 2: Make the Baby’s Chest. You do this the same as you made the Baby’s Butt; however you only use 6 diapers. Start by rolling 1 diaper into a tight roll. Then roll that diaper into another diaper. Do that until you’ve wrapped 6 diapers into 1

Step 3: You now have the Baby’s Butt and the Baby’s Chest. Lay the two side-by-side and push down with your hands. This flattens them a bit so they look more realistic once you put them inside your sleeper.

Take your three rolled diapers and roll them into a 4th diaper and wrap another rubber band around it. Then take the 4 rolled diapers and roll them into a 5th diaper. By the time you get to the 5th diaper you will notice that the diaper will not go completely around the 4 rolled diapers. So I wrap the 5 diaper as tight as I can around the 4 diapers and then use large paper clips to hold it in place. This makes the Baby’s Head
