Diaper Trike- How to

Hi Everyone!

Its FRRRIIIDDDAAAY! WOO HOO! It is also the day before our 6 year anniversary :) 6 years of ups and downs, trials and errors, cry's and laughter. I wouldn't trade any of it for the world.

Anyhoo, my brother and sister in law are having a little baby boy in March. I am throwing the shower next weekend and I couldn't be more thrilled for them! My brother loves his motorcycles and I wanted to make them something unique! So I decided upon a Diaper Trike! :) It was SUPER easy and turned out SUPER cute. Here is a tutorial:

You will need:
About 50 diapers 
Thick Ribbon
Thin Ribbon
Stuffed Animal
A Pair of newborn socks
2 Receiving blankets
2 bibs

I used just a pan and wrapped the diapers to form a circle. Stuff them tight and make sure they are all lined up.
Once complete, wrap with a rubberband. You will make 3 of these :)

You will then take a thick ribbon and cover up that ugly band. I used hot glue to attach them together. Once that is complete take your receiving blanket and roll it up TIGHT. The tighter the better. You will put it through ALL 3 of the center of wheels. Attach the ends of the blanket with a ruberband or ribbon. And form it into this formation :)

Take two bibs and put one as a 'seat' and one as a 'front end' Take your other Receiving blanket and roll it up TIGHT again. I used a ruberband for the ends and the center of it to ensure it is tight. The tigheter it is the easier it will be for the handle bars. Take it and slide through the front tire, make sure it is even.

Use another ruberband to secure the two ends of the receiving blanket and cover it up with ribbon. I used socks to cover the handle bars and small ribbon to attach the monkey's hands to the handle bars! The bottle sticks out the front to act as the 'headlight'

What do you think? I think my brother will LOVE it!

Have you ever given a unique baby shower gift?
