I was asked by a friend to make a hunting themed diaper cake for her daughter's baby shower. The only ideas she could give me was camouflage and orange. So, I put my thinking cap on and headed over to the Silhouette Design Store. In the Store, I found a 3D deer head which I thought would be perfect for the cake topper! I proceeded to cut all the pieces out for the deer head.
I cut out two sets of antlers so that I could add some thin wire between them to be able to bend, if needed. I then glued the antlers, and green "plaque", and slid the head pieces on the head.
Then it was time to work on the cake. I rolled and rubber banded 76 size 2 diapers. I use size 2 in case the mom-to-be wants to use the cake as a decoration for a while.
I could not find any camoflage ribbon, so I purchased 1/2 yard camo fabric and 1/4 yard orange fabric.
I cut the camo fabric at 3" and the orange fabric at 1.5" to use as my ribbon. I also made some bows out of the fabric to place on the backwhere the ribbon meets.
For the front, I knew I wanted to add his initials. I found an antler monogram file in the Silhouette Store. I added his initials and placed them inside. I then placed the antler monogram center front of cake. I also added a couple small images on the bottom and top layer of the cake on the front.
And here is a picture of it surrounded by all the presents at the baby shower. It was a huge hit at the shower!
I hope you enjoyed my version of a deer hunting diaper cake!! Have a crafty day ~ Deb
