I love giving practical baby shower gifts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a creative way to package them up! In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to put together a bouquet of baby burp cloths. The best part about this baby shower gift idea is that it’s so pretty it can double as a decoration at the party!

How to Make a Bouquet Out of Baby Burp Cloths

Materials:

  • burp rags, receiving blankets, or bibs (to roll up)
  • florist foam
  • wooden dowels cut to different lengths
  • a flower pot (very easy to find at thrift stores)
  • gallon sized ziplock bags with the zipper cut off, cello wrap, or clear decorative treat bags
  • straight pins
  • clear scotch tape
  • ribbon
  • Moss, grass, shredded paper filler, etc.

Instructions:

1. Roll up the burp rags into very tight rolls and secure them with a straight pin (you should warn mommy-to-be that the pins are there).
2. Attach the dowels to the inside of the plastic with a piece of clear tape.
3. Place the fabric roll inside the bag on top of the stick and tie off tightly with a ribbon.
4. Place a piece of florist foam inside the flower pot and poke the dowels into the foam to hold them upright.
5. Arrange at different heights, add some kind of decorative filler to hide the foam and tah-dah! A super cute gift that doubles as a decoration at the shower!
Another great option would be to roll up a flannel blanket to put in the pot. Then you wouldn’t need florist foam or decorative filler and the mommy-to-be would get an extra blanket! Just roll the blanket tight so there’s enough support to hold the dowels upright.

  2. This is such a great idea. I need to do it since I am having a garden shower for the mom to be. I am going to try diapers rolled ina waste paper basket that matches the baby's room and see if it works and how it looks. Thanks for the sharing.

  3. This is a neat idea. Probably would work as well for a bridal shower using either bath towels or kitchen towels ,potholders etc.
