Diaper Cake Gender Reveal

Gender reveals are really cute. I just recently went to the cutest gender reveal of a good friend of mine. They had a box with balloons that they opened up with blue balloons to signify it’s a boy! So this got me thinking… what about a useful gender reveal gift. Opening a diaper cake with a swaddle inside that is either pink or blue?

Don’t feel like it can only be made for gender reveals. If the mommy and daddy already know the gender cover it in ribbon and decor that is all one gender and give this as a shower gift.

So here are the directions for your gender reveal diaper cake.

What will you need?

I listed it here and linked all these items for you at the bottom of the post

Diapers (We LOVE Bambo Nature)
Swaddles (I love the adorable muslin swaddles from Swaddle Designs)
Large Elastics
Quaker Oats Container
Ribbon & Cute Decor

1. Take the quaker oatmeal container and wrap diapers around it. (Wrap the elastic around the container and tuck the diapers under it.) Space them out evenly all the way around.  Once completely around pull out the container and replace with the rolled swaddle.

2. Tier two, do the same thing but space them out more so the next tier is smaller.

3. Last tier fold 2 size down diapers (I chose newborn). Wrap an elastic around them. Then space that size diaper around them. Add to the top for the final tier.

4. Time to decorate!

Add anything you want. If you are giving as a gift, add the gender color or baby shower colors. If you are doing a gender reveal then add both colors to the diaper cake like I did here.

Have fun guys!
