Balloon Garland

A balloon garland is really easy to make, it is made up basically of balloons that are filled with air.

Materials you’ll need:

Making the balloon garland requires a bit of creativity, you would have to creatively choose the inflation levels of each balloon in order to be able to have them in different shapes and sizes.

You can make different colors of the balloon garland depending on which gender of baby you’re expecting. Although that should not really be an issue, it just somehow feels cuter when you add some pink balloons in it for your baby girl, blue & white for your baby boy too.

Baby Bottle Balloon Decorations

As the name implies, this is one of the cutest baby shower decorations you’ll find. It simply makes use of inflated balloons to build a baby bottle shape.

The size of the bottle may differ depending on your preference, what is most important is making sure that the bottle shape is clearly formed.

Materials you’ll need

Making this decoration isn’t as difficult as it might look in the picture. You have to only get something that can stand on its own on which you’ll need to arrange the balloons.

Inflate the balloons, ensure that they are mostly the same size and shape, except the ones that are going to be at the bottle top. You don’t want to have some parts look like they’re deeper than others.

Baby Diaper Wreath

Diaper wreaths are really beautiful when you have more than one of them hanging beautifully on the wall with different color ribbons. You can either make them with rolled up diapers, leave them stretched out, or have a combination of both and you’d still have something beautiful.

Materials you’ll need

  • Diapers
  • Cardboard
  • Office papers
  • Ribbons
  • Rubber bands
  • Hot glue gun

The number of diapers you’ll need would definitely depend on how large or small you want the decoration to be.

It is a really creative idea that can last really long too. Aside from making it a baby shower decoration, you could also decorate your baby’s room with it. Everything depends on your preference and creativity.

Diaper Cake

Making this diaper cake is totally preferential, you have to first decide which type, shape, and size of cake you want to make. When that choice has been made, you then have to move to the step on getting the required materials.

Materials you’ll need

  • Diapers
  • Rubber Bands
  • Baking Dish (not a necessity, but could make it a little easier)
  • Paper Towel Tube
  • Tape
  • Ribbon

You’ll need to roll the diapers with this decoration, you cannot have them stretched out, well unless you have to, depending on the style you want.

You would need to place each diaper side by side and around a slim cylindrical object to make the first tier. When that is complete, you can arrange the next tier directly behind the first, then move to the third and on and on until you get the desired size.

When that is done, you might want to have another level on top of the one below, and as I’ve always mentioned, it all depends on your creativity.

Ceiling Decorations

Ceiling decorations don’t have a specific design or style. There isn’t anyone pattern to follow, in fact, some of the materials needed would differ. You could make one ceiling decoration with sets of balloons with different colors and shapes, and you could make another one with origami.

Making ceiling decorations will totally depend on your ability to think outside the box. One thing you must make sure you consider is that you should make sure the decoration is beautiful to look at by using different colors or different shapes and designs. Your baby shower would look totally beautiful.

Baby Clothes Bunting

You can decide to make clothes bunting with old baby clothes for babies you previously had, or you could also decide to buy new ones. It is going to be totally worth it.

Materials you’ll need

  • Thick cardboards
  • Baby clothes, lots of them
  • Scissors
  • Pencils (marker or chalk, or anything at all that you can write with and also erase)
  • Needle and thread
  • Pins

It is quite easy to make a bunting when you first of all cut out the pattern you want to make on the thick cardboard. You can decide what size it would be but the shape usually is a rectangular one. Remember also that you can combine different sizes for some extra creative look.

The next step is to place the cut-out pattern(a) on the clothes you intend to use and mark it so that your pencil or marker is cut. Now you have to place one triangular cloth on another and sew them together. Do this to all the pieces and hang them on your line.

Remember that when you are making any of these DIY baby shower decorations there are no strict rules as to how the designs and shapes should be. It all completely depends on your level of creativity.
