The birth of a little girl in your or your friend’s family is always a joyous time.
We have put together some gift ideas that will delight the new parents! Our easy-to-follow step-by-step craft instructions guide you from the creative idea to the finished gift.
If you do a lot of crafts, you probably already have most of the materials at home. To make the basic ‘cake’ for all girls’ diaper cakes, you will need:
Coloured clay paper
Glue and scissors
From these, with a little skill, you can make any of the nappy cakes. The personalisation of the cake is the actual gift as you can add many little things as you tinker with your baby gift. For the decoration of your DIY baby gift, here are some example items:
Cute girls’ baby bodysuits
Girls’ baby socks and shoes
A cuddly handkerchief
Pink flannel cloths
Baby care products
Pacifiers, feeding bottles and spoons
Finally, there are no limits to what you can add as little gifts. You can keep it looking classic in delicate shades of pink and add some pure white and soft greys too. Make sure the products are of good quality. We recommend only buying girls’ baby clothes made of organic cotton.
When selecting sizes, get clothes a little bigger as the baby will soon grow into them. It’s likely that the new parents have already got the small clothes for the newborn and it would be a shame to dismantle the cake straight away rather than enjoying it for a few weeks while the baby grows.
The clothing sizes for babies are given in centimetres and correspond to the body size.
The following table will help you find the right size:
Clothing size / Age in months
50 / 0 - 1
56 / 0 - 1
62 / 2 - 3
68 / 3 - 6
74 / 6 - 9
80 / 9 - 12
86 / 12 - 18
92 / 18 - 24
Once you have chosen your baby gifts, you can start crafting. After all, you can use anything you like to decorate the gift. The instructions only give you help and some inspiration - be brave and create your very own individual baby gift.
Have fun crafting!
