Cute Idea for Baby Shower!!

If you are like me there always seems to be another baby shower just around the corner and when I saw my friend Becky bring this cute present to my sister-in-laws shower I LOVED it and had to try it for myself. It is a super creative idea and can be a cheaper alternative depending on where you buy your supplies.

This is hers that she made...

What you will need:

 burp cloths of different colors
 a dollar store plastic flowers and vase
baby socks of different colors.

and

a pack of diapers and wipes and ribbon.



How you do it:

-Take your pack of diapers and wipes and wrap them in the burp cloths.
(for mine I had to take apart the pack because I had bought one 
that was too large to be wrapped in the cloths.)

- Take the tops off the fake flowers and throw them away (or use them for something else?)

-Roll the socks up and secure with take. Make them into pretty rose buds on top. It might take one or two to practice.

-Place the flower socks on the plastic stems 
-Add a bow or some other festive last touches and you done!

Simple and cute:)

Here is how mine turned out...




 Let me know if you try it or want to! I love this idea:) Thanks Becky:)

That's cute! I have a baby shower to go to this weekend and I'll be posting the gift that I created similar to this early next week. I can't post it now as she reads my blog. :)

Cute idea! Have a great weekend!
