  1. Stuff one paper towel tube inside the other. This will help make the tube more rigid for the center of the diaper cake.
  2. paper tube for center
  3. Remove the size 1 diapers from the package. Stand them on the long edge and begin arranging them around the tube.

  5. Wrap a piece of curling ribbon around the diapers and pull it tight. Work the diapers around the tube, they should overlap a little bit. NOTE: This step is much easier if you can get a second set of hands.

    tighten ribbon and adjust diapers

  7. Tighten the ribbon more and wrap it around a second time. Then tie it and trim the ends short.

  19. When I attached the colorful pacifiers I ran a piece of curling ribbon in between the layers then tied the pacifiers to it. I finished off the ends by curling them.

  21. I placed a wooden dowel into the center of the cake, leaving about 2-3 inches sticking out of the top. I secured the Sally doll to the dowel with another bow. Add other Nightmare Before Christmas toys/decorations if you have them.
