Giant decorations are always and we rarely actually have the opportunity to craft and display some. That makes these giant baby blocks a super fun and enjoyable project. To make these you’re going to need letter templates, carstock, an x-acto knife, a ruler packing tape, scotch tape, square cardboard boxes and spray paint. We suggest pastel colors because they go so well with the whole baby shower theme. Check out the tutorial on ohhappyday for more details.

Although diapers may not generally be fun or particularly nice to look at, that doesn’t apply when you’re making a diaper cake. It’s a rather quirky and interesting way to use actual diapers in your baby shower decor plus this would also make a fun gift. The “cake” featured on ashadeofteal has four layers and a pair of tiny baby shoes as a cake topper.
