DIY Diaper Wreath
Our next door neighbors welcomed a baby girl on Friday so tonight I brought them dinner and a little gift. I made a diaper wreath, inspired by the Diaper Life Preserver my sister made for my Nautical Baby Shower. I used the color scheme from little Mayce's nursery (black, white & yellow).

Foam Ring
Size 1 Diapers
Any other accessories that you want to add

Wrap the diapers around the foam ring and secure with ribbon.

When you get to a spot where you want to put flowers, lay them flat on the foam and tape the stems down. Then wrap the diaper over the stems.

Add some ribbon and a tag:

I decided to add these little red shoes from the present. I think they give the wreath some personality.

Happy Linking!
