Baby Shower Diaper Tower

Today my friend Bre and I made a diaper tower/cake for a friend from church.  We are having a baby shower for her this Sunday, and I thought I would share our gift for her.

The color scheme for the shower is brown and pink.  The top tier has baby lotion, baby shampoo, diaper rash cream, etc... and the topper is a Minnie Mouse "lovey".

We weaved receiving blankets and washcloths throughout the bottom tier and wrapped some of the diapers from the middle tiers in coordinating fabrics.

A view of the back.  Bre painted some clothespins brown and pink, and we used them to clip on pacifiers and baby socks. 

Bre made the cute little decorative "picks" (not sure what word to use here!).  She found brown floral wire stems and added pink pacifier and silver "It's a Girl" charms.

Here's a closer look at a pacificer charm.

Thanks for all your help, Bre!  I had fun making it!

We need to get together and do some more crafting. Maybe some kind of a Christmas project- I've seen some really cool ideas!
