DIY Baby Shower

With so many easy ways to make lovely baby shower supplies for just a little money, it is no surprise that a DIY baby shower is becoming very popular.  Here are some ideas for DIY decorations, favors and gifts.

Painted Baby Food JarsVases: What a great way to recycle and create lovely table decorations.   They can also be given to each guest as a party favor once the baby shower is over.  Use any color paint that matches your theme.   For detailed instructions, check out the blog Oh Happy Day.

DIY Baby Shower Favors Glass Bear Jars: These teddy bear jars are so cute and make it easy to create favors.  Just order the jars, design the personalized labels and when you get them, just affix one to each jar.  Fill them with a candy of your choice.  Small candies work best.  They also make great little weights on which to tie one balloon.

Baby Shower Prizes: Instead of spending lots of money on prizes, make your own.  These scented bath salts are so pretty and you can use any type of glass jar you wish.  You can find great deals on glass jars at a wholesale floral supply place.  Check out the recipe by Tiff at Three Peas in a Pod.

Baby Shower Onesie Cupcakes: Onesies are such a practical and needed gift.  Give them extra style by turning them into cupcakes and placing them in a bakery box.  The tutorial for these fun gifts can be found on Little Birdie Secrets.

DIY Baby Shower SuppliesBaby Shower Stuff has lots of materials and supplies that can be used for decorations like ribbon, diaper pins, empty plastic bottles and blocks, centerpiece stands, mirrors, labels, and more.  I also shop at Target, Ebay and Pier 1 for supplies.    Target has a great dollar bin with different types of cute bags and mini pails.  Ebay offers lots of plastic embellishments like pacifiers, rocking horses and teddy bear beads.  Pier 1 offers wonderful smelling candles and glass or plastic confetti to add sparkle to the tables.

You can go to any bulk candy place to fill favor containers.  You can also find  many online candy stores that sell candy by the color if you wish to incorporate a blue or pink theme.
