Today I want to share with you an easy way to create a teddy bear diaper cake & an owl diaper cake. It’s extremely affordable and super fun to put together.
Not only that, but I make it out of a classic three tier cake in under 4 minutes. I show you exactly how I do it and I give you a list for everything you need.
Now you can make your own teddy bear shaped masterpiece that the expecting mom is absolutely going to love!
Teddy Bear Diaper Cake Instructions
Obviously, you don’t have to start from the three tier cake. I recommend that you start with the two essential tiers and make things easy on yourself.
Here is what you’ll need:
- glue gun
- 25 diapers
- 2 ribbons
- 2 paper eye cut outs
- 1 paper nose cut out
First thing you need to do is create two wrapped diaper wheels. One wheel should have 7 diapers, this is the bear’s face. The other wheel should contain 15 diapers, this is the bear’s body.
You should have three extra diapers for the bear’s ears and nose, more on the later.
Ideally you are going to want to hold these wheels together with decorative ribbons. Use your glue gun to connect the ribbons together around your wrapped diapers.
NOTE: Check out this video for detailed instructions on how to make wrapped diaper tiers!
After you’ve completed your wheels, place the smaller one on top of the larger one to form the bear’s head and body (just like in the video).
Use your glue gun to glue the head and body together ,on ribbons, and give it a minute for it to cool down and to set.
Roll up your 3 extra diapers and put rubber bands on them tight. In the center of your small wheel, gently put one of the diapers in it to form the nose. Make sure it sticks out a little.
Put some glue under the two other rolled up diapers and stick them at the top of the teddy bear’s head. Make sure there is space between them.
Put some glue on the the eyes and nose cut outs. Glue them on the bear’s head to your liking. That’s it, your done!

You are going to need a few things before you get started. Here is a list of the ingredients:

Place the two smaller diaper wheels on the larger one to form the owl’s eyes. Place the towel (or receiving blanket) around the eyes and body.
Take your rubber bands and secure the two small diaper wheels and the towel to form the owl’s head and wings. Remember to fold the ends of the towel to accentuate the wings.
Tape the eye cutouts onto the coasters and stick the coasters on the two smaller diapers to complete the owl’s eyes.
Now gently stick the small lotion bottle between the eyes and flip it up to form the owl’s beak. Place the owl diaper cake over the kid socks. That’s it, you’re all done!
