Show & Tell Friday

Show and Tell
Happy Friday!
Today, I'd like to share the centerpiece I made for a baby shower last night at church. We have had a baby and bridal shower boom at church recently. I'm on the "celebrations" ministry team and last night was my turn to decorate the table.
This little duckie sat up on the top of the diaper cake centerpiece I made.
I forget now how many diapers I rolled up to make each layer of the "cake". I think there were about 20 or so on just the bottom tier. I tied string around each layer and then added a card stock band to cover up the string.
For the baby garland, I stenciled the letters onto some tags, painted in the letters and sprinkled with glitter. I also found some cute painted wood animals: a frog, turtle, and duck which I hot glued to the paper band - one on each tier.
Little itty bitty buttons at the corner of each square were hot glued on to add some texture. The coordinating bows added the finishing touch.
Here is a picture of the diaper cake at the shower.

Thanks for dropping by today. Have a terrific weekend!
Make sure to stop by Kelli's House for more Friday Show & Tells.

So cute. I've seen those done before but I think yours is one of the cutest I've seen. You went to a lot of work to make it special.

So CUTE!!!

I clicked on Kelli's House and her picture looked REALLY familiar so I read her post about Homeschooling & she uses the same curriculum as me. :0) I bet I've seen her on the sonlight forums before. Small world. :0)
