Hello my crafty friends,
I cannot believe September is knocking on the door, the days and weeks just have escaped me. I have been finishing up a few projects that I want to post. Today I am sharing another diaper cake, tricycle cake I made for my friend’s daughter. Congratulations Courtney and Dominque, the baby made his debut right after the baby shower, two weeks early. I guess Prince Dominque was ready to enjoy his new toys..lol
The color theme was lime green, blue and brown with monkeys. My sister Athena and I had had a lot of fun with this diaper cake. The monkey on the tricycle is just too cool..lol
To make the diapered tricycle, I used 36-Size 3 diapers, paper towel roll, rubber bands and ribbon. I rolled 18 diapers starting at the waist/elastic end tightly roll the diaper up secure rubber band around the middle of diaper. I made 3 wheels using 6 rolled diapers and 6 flat diapers, paper towel roll and medium size rubber bands.
Place the medium size rubber band around the paper towel roll. Then insert 6 rolled diapers around the roll.
Then take 6 flat diapers and layer the around the rolled diapers in a spiral pattern and secured with ribbon.
Then I threaded two pipettes through the back wheels to help support the exhaust pipe and threaded a rolled blanket through the front wheel to make the exhaust pipe. I took the pipettes and wrapped it around the blankets to secure it in place.
Then I threaded blanket through the front wheel to make the handle bar.
Then I placed a sippy cup for the head light, socks on the handle bar and the ends of the exhaust pipes, bottle cleaners as flags, and folded blankets for the seat.
For the diaper cake tiers I used:
Top layer-newborn diapers (60), Middle layer-Size 1 (60) Bottom layer-Size 2-3(70) with rolled lollipop towels and rolled sock rosebuds and monogrammed.
More Goodies personalized t-shirts and diaper wipe case
