Hi Everyone,
I love the diaper wreaths I've been seeing on here and other places.  My friend is having twins, so I decided to make her 2 diaper wreaths for her upcoming baby shower, one pink and one blue (she's having 1 boy and 1 girl, natch Cheesy).

My question is, how do I "wrap" them?  Do I just bring them into the shower as-is, or find a HUGE gift bag, or what?  For all of the tutorials and photos of diaper wreaths I've seen, I've never seen a way to present or wrap them.

Any suggestions are appreciated!  Thanks!  Grin

I have given a few out but I don't wrap them. Two people immediately put them up so everyone could see it at the shower, and one other I gave at the hospital and they put it on the hospital door. I just make sure that I have a "top" and a "bottom" for hanging purposes and a ribbon or something to put it up with. They make great decorations, even for a welcome home gift. Smiley

Both diaper wreathes I've given were displayed also.. and for months after baby was born (I use 6 month size diapers, and the gifts/clothes attached are all appropriate for a 6 month old baby so that it can be appreciated for awhile, then taken apart to appreciate/use the seperate components)...

What I do, is actually attach a set of baby coat hangers to the back, so they form a hook to hang it up, and are then useful later.. I just tie them on with the same curling ribbon I use to attach the decorations/gifts. I also did this on a blank wreathe I made.. I just did the diapers and decorative ribbon for a coworker, who then went off and attached gifts/socks etc, and gave it to her daughter inlaw.

Thanks everyone Smiley  The shower was this past weekend, and I ended up stacking the 2 wreaths and wrapping several layers of tissue paper around, to make a funny puffy doughnut  Grin  But it looked fine in the end, and the soon-to-be-mom loved it!
