Making a diaper animal actually is easy and simple! And while diaper cakes meanwhile are sort of standard at a baby shower party, animals made of diapers still are something special. They are 'the new diaper cakes'! The problem is that you can hardly find free instructions for diaper creatures, neither in diaper cake books, nor online.
But the good news is, that you just found the right place to learn how to make cute diaper animals perfect for every baby shower and baby party! But of course you can also give it as a gift after baby's birth.
These homemade diaper snails will make such a cute baby gift! They nicely wrap things like a baby romper, a baby hat, a wrist rattle, etc. and of course some baby pampers.
Your pampers gift can be varied since you can also craft a plain snail without hardly any accessories.

Now that makes easy and cute pampers animals, doesn't it!?
As for the snail, you can make this beautiful caterpillar as a 'simple' diaper gift only or you can add lots of goodies in the middle of the various segments or on top of the segments.
This 'Very Hungry Diaper Caterpillar' pictured here is just a plain version made of approx. 15 pampers, size 2, and 6 baby spoons for the legs.
For the 6 to 8 body segments roll up one diaper and another one around it, fix it with a small piece of scotch tape. For the head, take 4 diapers, one rolled up and the other 3 rolled around, one after the other, also fix with scotch tape. Around the diaper bundles, then roll crepe paper in different green shades and red for the head. To fix, just use one drop of glue or also scotch tape.
Then glue the rolls together. Place some a bit higher than the others to make it look wiggly. Add the eyes and the feelers. You can easily stick the baby spoons (best in green and yellow colors) inside your diaper bundles with the spoon-handles first.

Since owls as a baby shower theme, for baby clothes, for the nursery, for baby accessories, etc. are a hot trend right now, I have created this cute little owl diaper cake for a baby boy. In owl's belly I have 'hidden' a baby romper and other than that the owl diaper gift contains approx. 30 diapers size 2, a pacifier and 3 baby spoons.

This awesome little diaper butterfly has been made of a rolled up baby onesie, two diapers, a chenille stem / pipe cleaner, wobbly eyes and some ribbon. If you need just a little something for baby this is a cute homemade and quick gift. Of course you can also make several of these or also roll up other clothes than a onesie.
These cute little fellows even are an easier diaper butterfly version, made of two diapers and two pipe cleaners each. These make a great baby shower decoration, you can even hang them up or have them dangling from the ceiling.
A great alternative to a diaper animal is making a diaper cake with an animal theme. Just put a cuddly baby animal toy on top and decorate it with more animal apparel, accessories, toys, etc.!
