Here is another gift for the mums to be they are going to have a baby shower next weekend so i cant wait to see there faces. it was really cheap to make i picked the wash cloths and plastic spoons up from the pound shop and ribbon and used plastic wrapping which i already had. It cost £3 to make 6 lollypops.
packet of baby washcloths
packet of plastic feeding spoons
1. lay the wash cloths flat on a table and roll up making two of different colours along side each other.
2. roll up again from the top making a circle shape or snail and secure the bottom with clear tape.
3.put the plastic spoon at the back of the shape and secure with tape in the middle.
4.put the wrapping around the lollypop and tie it shut with the ribbon.
5. if you dont have wrapping you can use sandwich bags as long as they are clear.
these are a great gift for new parents and make good displays for baby parties as well
As it is soon coming the birth of my new grandson and grand daughter i have been making gifts for the mums to be and also keeping there spirits up as they have had a hard time with sickness i have made them a nappy cake and nappy wreath and now this is the newest addition to there stash of gifts.It is really simple to make and dont cost much i picked up everything from the pound shop it cost about £5 in all.
10 new born nappies,
10 rubber bands
length of thick ribbon of your choice
one toy or rattle or dummy
1 roll up each nappy like a swiss roll and secure with the rubber bands.
2. to assemable the bundle fold the blanket lengthwise and then in half again to form a strip.
3.lay the folded blanket in front of you and stack four rolled nappies in the centre then stack three rolled nappies on top,of the four and then two rolled nappies on top of three and one rolled nappy on top of two so it makes a traingle shape if i was you i would put a large elastic band around the whole of the stack just to secure it a bit more.
4. fold the ends of the blanket up to the centre and making sure they are even both sides.
5.tie the ends of the blanket together with ribbon attacting a teething rattle or dummy to the bundle though the ribbon.
Its not how it sounds to dont eat it. It is a nappy cake as a gift, really easy to make a bit expensive with the nappies but they can be used for the baby every thing is useable so thats a good thing.
2 bags of nappies
large elastic bands
small elastic bands
any gifts wanting to add to cake
1.begin by rolling up the nappies from front to back and secure the nappy with a rubber band but not to tight and form a ring around the bottle of baby bath and then secure the ring of nappies with a larger elastic band.
