Diaper Trike

I saw the idea on Pinterest maybe a month or two ago and thought it was such a cute idea.  A few weeks ago a friend had a baby shower for a boy so I just had to do this!  The pin on pinterest just links you to - not very helpful.  However, this was not too difficult to make at all.  I rolled up the diapers with a tube in the middle (ribbon holder, paper towel tubs, wrapping paper tubes, whatever handy), then used a rubber band to go around it all.  I then used the ribbon to hide the rubber band.  Next, I used receiving blankets and had the blanket go through the middle of the two back tires and looped it around some diapers in the front tire. I wrapped a hanger wire in a receiving blanket for the front tire/handles, looped it through the middle tube of the front tire;  Stuck the bib and sippy cup on top, used a ribbon to secure the wires together and stuck the socks on the ends.  Sorry, I'm not one to do tutorials and I just kind-of figured this out by looking at a picture.  I'm sure there's a better explanation out there on how to do this.  It was a hit!  Very fun idea so thank you pinterest!


  1. That's awesome! Can I just pin your picture on Pinterest? You have a good enough explanation for a tutorial! :)

  2. HA! Whatever you say Bean! But, yes you may. :)

  3. So cute! I like this reinvention of the diaper cake.
