The first step is to buy the materials for your homemade nappy cake and think about what colours you want. There are three designs: for a boy, a girl, or neutral colours. For boys, it is best to go for cool colours, like different shades of blue mixed with grey. Pink, white, and soft beige colours are more suitable for a girl's owl diaper cake.
If the gender is unknown or you want to avoid the cliché colours, then use colours such as green, yellow, and white. Alternatively, you could try complementary colours. For example, red and green, or blue and orange, or violet and yellow work well together. Decide on the main colour and then add accents of the complementary colour throughout the owl. The idea is that the two colours will enhance each other.
If you know the gender and the name, then you can personalise your DIY nappy cake. You might be lucky and find a necklace with the baby’s name on it, but if not then you can make your own name tag out of coloured paper.
Once you've got everything together, you're ready to go.
