DIY diaper cake for baby shower

A friend of mine is having a baby and her theme was giraffe. Well, there were no giraffe decorations to be found so I found myself venturing to hobby lobby where I found pre painted wooden giraffes. Thus, I decided to make diaper cakes. 

Step one, roll diapers...
I rolled them and held them in between my calves so they wouldn't unroll. I didn't want to tape them because it may ruin the diapers. I used a piece of tulle, slid it around them, and tied a knot. 

Step two, wrap in ribbon of choice and hot glue.

Step three, take a small paper plate and poke a hole in the center then insert a straw or stick. This stick is what you will hit glue your animal of choice too.

Step four, hot glue animal to the straw. Then hot glue decorative grass around the animal on top of the paper plate.

Step five, insert the straw bottom I to the center of the diaper. I later went on to add fake flowers around the ribbon. Pretty easy, and a functional gift!
