Making a stroller diaper cake is an easy way to celebrate a baby’s first year with a creative gift. These cakes are made from diapers, which can be bought in bulk and tied together with a ribbon. This tutorial will show how to make a stroller diaper cake for baby!
How to Make a Diaper Bassinet With Wheels
A diaper bassinet with wheels can be made by cutting a crib mattress to the size of the box spring.
The fitted sheet should be cut in half and used as a cover for the front of the baby bed, then secured at each corner on top of it like how you would secure an air mattress.
Cut out two pieces from one side of the fitted sheet to create a pocket and slide in one piece of mattress. Pull each side upwards until it reaches about halfway up the length of the back side, then secure with tape or glue at three points.
The bassinet can also be made from two pieces of plywood that are cut down to size for both sides, which are then screwed together. The plywood is then cut in half and attached to the top of a box spring, either by overlapping it or using hinges on one side so that you can fold it down when not in use.
How to Make a Diaper Carriage
Step 1. Gather a large box (cardboard) from one side, two smaller boxes and some ribbon.
Step 2. Stack the small boxes on top of one another -one at either end with about an inch in between for stability. Make sure that all four corners are squared up so they don’t come undone later by pushing them together with your fingers.
Step 3. Secure with a ribbon around the four corners of the boxes, leaving enough slack to tie it off in a bow at either end.
#1. Before stuffing and tying up diapers inside, weave and attach ribbons on each side so that they are also tied together when finished – this will make for easier carrying later as you can just grab onto them instead of having to hold both ends while tucking them into place.
#2. Place approximately one dozen or more stuffed diapers evenly throughout the bottom box (or how many would fit comfortably) then layer another set of twelve or more on top; repeat until the desired height is reached.
#3. Tie off two smaller ribbons after placing all stacked diaper cakes -one from each end of the top row of diapers – and tie these together in a loose knot.
#4. Then wrap one long ribbon around the bundle to create loops that you can then pass through both small ribbons at the end, securing with another loop or two for added stability.
#5. Tie off tightly at each end so that there are no gaps between rows and place on either side of your stroller handlebars depending on how much space is available; this will prevent those unused corners from sagging down too far while still making it easy enough to grab when needed!
#6. If desired, attach bows as well by attaching them onto opposite ends of handles (large bow should be near the back wheel). Infants can even use it as a comfy seat while they’re pushing the stroller for an added touch.
How to Clean a Stroller
Step 1. To clean, gently wipe down with a damp cloth or sponge; avoid using harsh chemicals. For tough stains, use baking soda and water to scrub at the stain before attacking it with soap.
Step 2. Treat spills quickly by wiping off excess liquid away from fabric immediately and dabbing up remaining moisture while how can the stroller dry in an open area outside of direct sunlight for 24 hours (leaving on concrete surfaces is not recommended).
Step 3. Allow when dried completely to vacuum out any debris that may have collected within the wheel wells.
When storing your stroller: place a cover over the frame before storage so that dirt will be kept out during this process as well as protect against dust accumulation inside handlebar covers where it can ultimately cause damage. After storing your stroller: clean and treat the frame as described in steps one to five above.
It is also recommended that you inspect how much remaining air there are inside tires, fill it accordingly with a bicycle pump if needed then store how away from direct sunlight for 24 hours (leaving on concrete surfaces is not recommended). Allow how to dry completely before using or showing again.
Clean wheels thoroughly after every usage by spraying them down with soap and water until they are free of any dirt particles then drying how off afterwards with a towel and applying lubricant such as WD-40 to prevent corrosion from salt build-up which will accelerate wear over time.
Steps in Making a Stroller Diaper Cake
Step 1. Gather approximately 50 diapers and wrap them in the ribbon. You will need enough to cover the round cake board you are using as a bottom layer.
Step 2. Stack these diapers on top of one another into four equal piles, wrapping each stack with more ribbon for stability. Alternate how they are stacked so that there is no flat side exposed.
Step 3. Stack another round cake board on top of these four piles, and tie the ribbon around this layer as well. This will make a sturdy base for your diaper cakes to stand up straight without toppling over.
Step 4. Wrap diapers in more ribbons until you have one large circle formed by the ribbons crisscrossing through the middle. You will need enough to cover the round cake board you are using as a bottom layer.
Step 5. Stack these diapers on top of one another into four equal piles, wrapping each stack with more ribbon for stability. Alternate how they are stacked so that there is no flat side exposed.
Step 6. Stack another round cake board on top of the four piles to create a platform for your cake. Wrap more ribbon around these layers and tie them tightly. Put your baby shower cake on top of this layer, populating it with decorations as desired.
