Diaper cakes make for a super cute baby shower decoration and gift for a mom-to-be.

I prefer the rolled diaper method, as opposed to the fanned diaper method. I usually buy a box of diapers that contains about 84-96; depending on the size of the cake you build, you may have some diapers left over to give to mom. I will usually buy size two or three diapers so that the cake can be used as a decoration for a bit before the diapers come into use.

DIY: Stones in my Shoe [Tray]

I saw this adorable pebble boot tray from Clean & Scentsible on pinterest and had to give it a shot in my house.

Materials:

  • black rubber shoe/boot tray (previously purchased from Lowe’s)

I didn’t bother with gluing down the stones, mostly because my tray sits underneath a table and I currently don’t have any little ones running around. Check it out:
