Little Swimmers Diaper Cake

A unique and colorful spin on the popular baby shower gift, because babies just want to have fun in the water and sun.

Approximate Time: 20 minutes



  • 12 (= 1 pack) of Little Swimmers diapers
  • 1 large rubber band
  • decorative ribbon (about 25 inches)
  • 1 straight pin
  • hot glue
  • baby items: such as baby sunblock, beach/sand toys, sunglasses, sandals, bathing suit, etc.
  • Optional: additional ribbon to make bows and other decorations
  • cylinder, i.e. a soup can or large round jar


Gather materials, clear work area, and preheat glue gun. Also place the cylinder or round baby sunblock (or new baby bottle) on a table.

Wrap one Little Swimmers diaper closely around the cylinder, with your preferred side of the diaper facing outward.

With a second Little Swimmer diaper facing out, wrap the closed (crotch) end of the diaper against the first diaper's closed (crotch) area, about 2 inches from where the first one started. Slip rubber band around the diapers for future adding.


Repeat step 3 for all 12 diapers, sliding each diaper in once it stretches the rubber band out.


Remove the cylinder in the middle only if it is not included with the diaper cake. Wrap the decorative ribbon snug around the mid-section of the diaper cake and pin ends together. Shift the diapers as needed to make an evenly-spaced out arrangement.

Hot glue ribbon ends together, holding firmly and cautiously until glue is set and dry.

Slip rubber band off of the cake.


Decorate the Little Swimmer's Diaper Cake to your preference, adding baby items, tulle/cellophane/gift wrap, and give. (I made a quick and easy fish-shaped wash cloth by rolling it, folding in half, then tying ribbon mid-body to form a tail with the ends.) Enjoy.
