Coconut Baby

When decorating for a party or special occasion, sometimes ideas run dry. When this happens to me, I try to think "outside the box". I did just that for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. I live in Florida where coconuts are in abundance and decided to make some babies with them for the main table.


I set the coconut in a tube base made with cardboard to enable it to stand up and tied a bib around the neck. I cut the rubber insert off of a pacifier and glued it to the mouth area. I also glued on some black thread for eyelashes and some wiggle eyes. Slip on a hat and paint some pink on the cheeks. Even if you don't live in a coconut state, you can purchase them at grocery stores. Everyone enjoyed the coconut babies!

Adorable craft for a party table just by changing how you "dress" up your "baby". This is a winner for sure.
Thanks for sharing it.

Very creative idea. It makes me laugh just to look at it. Can't you see it with a new year's hat on or maybe a Santa's beard and red cap? How about ears poking up through an Easter bonnet? Or a long nose and witch's hat? An Uncle Sam's hat with the American flag sticking up for the 4th of July?

I must remember this, so I'm creating a file for these kinds of ideas to be used later.

Thank you for sharing it Mary.

If the parents are sports fans, I bet a dollar store soccer or baseballs would work too. But I do like the coconut best!
