Hi, Cuties! My friend recently had a baby shower, and up until the last minute I had no idea what to get her. So..I didn’t. I made her a gift that she and everyone else in attendance absolutely adored, and today I’m going to teach you how to make it!
This is such a unique baby gift! (And you can do it in twenty minutes or less!) So now, for the materials…
-Cup holder (I got mine from Sonic and cut the sides lower so you could see more clearly)
-Clear plastic cups (Mine are from a local coffee shop because I didn’t want any corporate logos)
For the cupcakes and milkshakes:
-3 pk of onesies
-2 pk of bibs
-2 pk of pants
-4 pk of mittens (these will be the “cherries”
-2 pk of nipples
-rubber bands (to hold the inside of the cupcake)
-Stickers to decorate the cups and cup holders
-Tissue paper to fill the bottom
-Ribbon to tie around the cupcakes
Alright, so, the first thing you need to do is fold a onesie in half, add a mitten inside to where it sticks up a bit, and begin rolling. As you roll the onesie, move up to give it a spiral look that has dimension. Avoid just rolling it up with no levels! For my cups, I wanted the design on the bibs to show, so I rolled the bib around the rolled onesie.
Stick everything inside the cup, and add a nipple on top!
For the cupcakes:
This is very similar to the milkshakes! Simply take a pair of pants, fold them in half, add a “cherry” (mitten) and roll it up. (You can add a bib like I did to make them bigger!) The rolling needs to be dimensional here, as well. You want it to look like a cone.
Wrap a rubber band around the cupcake’s base, and then place it inside a coffee filter. I highly recommend using multiple filters. This enhances the look.
Tie a ribbon around the base, and you’re done!
Hope you enjoyed this DIY, and good luck!
