If you'll be attending a baby shower soon and want to present a gift that will make the baby's nursery a little more inviting, a door wreath is a crafty and attractive choice. You can personalize the wreath with the baby's name and the colors of the nursery as well to make the item a gift that the parents of the child will appreciate.
Things You'll Need
- Wire hangers
- Ribbons or plastic bags
- Baby booties
- Foam or wooden wreath
- Baby blanket
- Stock paper
- Paper cutter
- Needle and thread
- Synthetic pearls
- Mini stuffed animals
Unfold wire hangers to form a circle in the size you want the wreath to be.
Cut strips of plastic bags or ribbons in the color of your choice. White is usually the best choice, but consider the baby's room decor when making the wreath. For instance, if the nursery has a jungle theme, black or brown plastic bags or ribbons will make an attractive present.
Tie as many of the strips around the wire frame as possible.
Tie some of the excess ribbon into little bows, and hot glue the bows to various places on the wreath.
Cut out the letters that spell the baby's name from the stock paper.
Glue the letters onto the baby booties, and glue the booties across the top or bottom of the baby wreath.
Wrap newborn-size diapers around the foam or wooden wreath. Or, cut strips of a baby blanket and wrap the strips around the wreath.
Glue synthetic pearls along the wreath if this matches the little one's room decor, or hot-glue mini stuffed animals around the wreath. Choose animals that match the color scheme of the wreath. For instance, if you've used pastel colors, baby chicks or little lambs are fitting.
Sew the baby's name onto baby booties, and glue the booties to the wreath. Or, sew the little one's name to a strip of blanket, and glue the strip to the top or bottom of the wreath.
