Be Creative: The Making of DIY Tricycle Diaper Cake
After you prepare the things that you want to have in DIY Tricycle Diaper Cake, you can start making it. First thing is to make the tire. There are many things that you can try to make the tire from the diapers and two of the methods are to use a cake pan or to use some toilet paper rolls. Both ways can work well for the making the wheels and you can make the tire easier without getting trouble and confused. Well, if you use the cake pan, you can start by adding the diapers into the cake pan and piling it into a circle form. Do it carefully and you can use rubber once the wheel of diaper is done. After that, you can make the other two wheels. Then, after the wheels are done, you can check the wheels before continue to the next process. Make sure if the wheels are in good shape and they are all in similar size. After you are convinced that the wheels are good to go, you can put ribbons around the wheels. Please do it gently because you do not want the wheels ruined.
Now, you are one step closer to finish the project! Roll all the blankets that you have because you will put these rolled blankets through the wheels that you have already made. One blanket is for tying the three wheels and one blanket is for the front wheel. Later, the blanket in the front wheel will be used for the handle of the tricycle. For the instruction, you may need to check on some photos or videos on how people do it; because the process is a bit confusing if there is no guidance about how to put the blankets through these wheels. Also, it is important to make the DIY Tricycle Diaper Cake sturdy but, when you are doing this process, make sure you do not pull everything too tight. It can ruin the wheels and the blankets will be wrinkled. Just do it in proper method.
Then, place the bib on the front wheel (place the neck part headed for the back). After that, put the bottle on the bib. Do not forget to set the bottom of the bottle in front, because the bottom of the bottle will be used as the ‘flashlight’ for the DIY Tricycle Diaper Cake. Then, make sure that the bottle and the bib place in the right order and secured. Then, we go back to the arrangement of blanket in front wheel. Wrap the bottle with the blanket and do not forget to tie the blanket after that with a rubber band. Then, you can make the handle for the diaper cake with the both ends of the blanket. Take the baby socks and added the baby socks to the ends of the blanket. That will be the handle bars for the tricycle diaper cake. You can put another bib around the handle bars. To make it more wonderful, you can wrap a ribbon over the bottle; and it is done.
Now, you can take the tricycle diaper cake with you and bring the happiness to the event. Do not afraid to modify it with your own ideas. Surely, it will make your present even more incredible.
