Bathtub Diaper Cake

Every time I throw a baby shower, I love to make a new different kind of diaper cake. This Bathtub Diaper Cake might be one of my very favorites. It is the easiest of all the diaper cakes to make and it is so much fun to style with rubber duckies and bubbles! 

You will need: 

  • Huggies Little Movers Diapers
  • a large blue bin
  • cotton balls
  • blue tulle
  • rubber duckies
  • anything else you want to display with the tub (washcloths, baby wash, etc.)

 One of the most important parts of a diaper cake, is to use quality diapers, like Huggies Little Movers. You want this decoration to double as a present to the mom to be, so make sure you use diapers she will actually want to use on her new little one. At my baby shower we were given so many newborn and size 1 diapers that I didn't use them all before my baby outgrew them, so I love to gift diapers that are a little larger so they will have them even when all of the other baby shower gifts run out.

 Take a large blue bucket, I found this one at my local dollar store, and start layering the diapers around the edge of the the bucket. As you get closer to the center, roll some of the diapers and place them in the center.

After you have a bottom layer of diapers, add some diapers around the edges of the bucket and then roll a layer of diapers for the top, so the diaper come just to the top of the bucket.

Take a roll of dark blue tulle and stick the tulle in the spaces in between the diapers. You don't even have to cut it if you don't want to. My tulle was just one big long strip.

Add a small pile of cotton balls to the top of the blue tulle.

 Finish the cake off with rubber duckies.

When you style the cake on the table for the baby shower style it with washcloths, baby wash and diaper cream! 

One of the biggest reasons that I use Huggies for my diaper cakes and for my little ones is because of their Leak Lock and a Dry Touch Liner that absorbs on contact so your little one stays dry. Little Movers are shaped for fit and flexibility and have double grip strips so the fit is comfortable to your little one and lasts.

This is just the cutest! I have honestly never made a diaper cake and have wanted to. I have a baby shower to go to in a few weeks and I think this will be perfect. Saving this, thanks!
