I made this diaper nappy chair as an alternative to a diaper cake it can also be made bigger as a sofa for twins.
Items you will need to make this baby shower craft are:
- Base of chair- 12 rolled nappies and 6 flat nappies & 1 baby towel or hand towel
- Chair back- 4 rolled nappies & 1 baby washcloth or 1 face cloth
- Chair arms- 2 rolled nappies & 2 baby washcloths or 2 face cloths
- 4 dowels, rubber bands and safety pins
- Ribbon or Lace for decoration
- Teddy or other soft toy to sit on chair
Assemble the Nappy Chair Centerpiece
Start by rolling up 18 nappies and secure them with the rubber bands.
Then place 12 of the nappies together secured by a large rubber band.
Place the flat nappies into the rolled nappies. One in-between each section of 4 nappies and also around the outside of the base.
Place the towel around the base of the chair and secure with safety pins and trim with lace or ribbon.
Place dowels into 4 rolled nappies and fix to the base
Cover with baby washcloth or face cloth secure this with safety pins then decorate with lace or ribbon.
Tuck a baby washcloth or face cloth into each side of the chair and roll the nappy inside it
Secure with the lace or ribbon.
Place a folded baby washcloth on the seat of the chair.
And now you chair is ready for your soft toy or teddy bear.

The theme is yellow duck.
