One of my dear friends is going to be a Grandma and she is having a baby shower for her oldest daughter. He will be born near Halloween, so I used your ideas and made a Harvest Diaper Cake.

little pumpkin baby diaper cake

I hosted a Lil Pumpkin baby shower since she was due in October. It was a big hit!

Items I used to decorate:
6 washcloths
1 infant Mylicon
1 infant Tylenol
1 infant first rattle
1 Gymboree "little pumpkin" onesie
1 I'm a little pumpkin' bib
1 Lil Pumpkin photo frame
1 box of 2 pacifiers
1 Osh Kosh "pumpkin" hat
1 orange round teether

I used size 2 Huggies Supreme (entire bag of 80). I rolled each diaper and tied with green ribbon. It was assembled into 3 "layers" by tying them with wide orange ribbon. For the middle layer I tied it after each round of diapers to keep it tight so that it wouldn't 'fall'. To keep the layers together and make it look like a pumpkin I used more of the orange ribbon and went all the way around with 3 separate cuts of ribbon.

I tucked the ends into the green ribbon on the diapers in the middle diapers to secure. For the top layer I removed the middle diaper and put a "Ty Peter Attic Treasure" bear inside to peep out over the edge. Curled more green ribbon to make the stem and poked down under the bear.

For my 'plate' I wrapped a 12X12 blank scrapbook album with orange tissue paper. I hot glued the pumpkins and rubber duckies near the front to decorate. I also hot glued some little wooden pumpkins at intervals around middle of pumpkin. I did not use tape or glue on any of the diapers. All that was left was to decorate with pumpkin themed baby items!

The border is drawn by me personally. I had FUN with this Cake.... From finding Christmas€items and trying to keep everything Red and Green as much as possible. When I saw mini ketchup containers at our local restaurant I had a GREAT IDEA. I went and bought mini Christmas Cupcake wrappers and attached it to the bottom of the ketchup containers. Then I placed the Scratch mitts inside. VOILA Christmas Muffins. Who would have thought?
