If you’ve been keeping up with things, you know i’m expecting a new niece this summer & the projects have only just begun!
One of the first things I like to accomplish is a hospital door wreath. You never know when baby is arriving, so this should be ready to go at least a couple of months before baby is due.
I wanted to make the wreath more than just decorative & include a couple useful items, like diapers! We know every new baby will be using plenty of these & any opportunity to gift them is appreciated by new parents.
I used Huggies Snug & Dry, a grapevine wreath (spray-painted cream), burlap, pretty trims & a sweet, stuffed bear to make mine.
I rolled up a handful of the diapers & secured them with rubber bands. Huggies Snug & Dry are perfect for this wreath project because I know mom’s trust the brand. I want this gift to be practical as well as thoughtful. Huggies Snug & Dry last for up to 12 hours & help to keep baby’s skin nice & dry.
Next, I used the tiniest dab of hot glue to wrap a piece of burlap ribbon around each diaper.
I did the same thing with another coordinating ribbon to dress things up a bit. Then used more hot glue to attach them to the wreath.
I like to add lots of trims hanging down the wreath, almost like a giant mum. they make things a bit more festive at the hospital. Plus, you can do use more fragile items on a wreath that you know will be indoors.
I added a little wooden flower on top of the diapers for extra girliness.
I used pink twine to tie the bear on. Do not use hot glue on it! You want the baby to be able to play with the bear later on.
Every welcome wreath must have a chalkboard for recording baby’s name, dob, height, weight, etc. I added a pom-pom to mine.
Make sure you bring a wreath hanger with you too! Or some means to hang the wreath up with. The wreath can always be placed on babies nursery door after they go home from the hospital.
They’ll obviously be a good amount of leftover diapers, so wrap them up in a coordinating diaper cake or re-tape the box & wrap it up. Attach a bunch of balloons for another fun hospital gift.
