Awww, take a peek at this DIY Baby Shower Wreath

I know you’ll love this adorable, DIY Baby Shower Wreath, with its itty-bitty socks, sweet sneakers and soft, chenille yarn. Sweet as can be, right? If you’re hosting a baby shower, this Baby Shower Wreath belongs on your front door to welcome guests. The mom-to-be can take the wreath home, and hang it on her door, or the baby’s door, or in the nursery. Precious, isn’t it? And did I mention it’s super easy?

DIY Baby Shower Wreath

To make a Baby Shower Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” wreath, beveled front
  • Chenille yarn
  • Baby socks, three, newborn size
  • Baby shoes, one pair, newborn size
  • Baker’s twine, 24”
  • Mini clothespins, six
  • Chenille stem
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Tools needed: Scissors; pins

It’s easy enough to change the colors for a baby boy or girl.

To make a Baby Shower Wreath:

  1. Wrap the wreath in yarn. If there are gaps after the first pass, go back and double wrap where needed.
  2. Pin the baby shoes to the wreath at the 4:00 position. (You can also glue the shoes in place, but they may not be wearable.)
  3. Stretch a 24” length of baker’s twine across the wreath for a clothes line. Wrap each end around a straight pin. Insert the pins in the back of the wreath and glue in place. Be sure to pull the twine taut, so it doesn’t sag.
  4. Twist together ends of a 4” chenille stem. Insert and glue the ends in the back of the wreath for a hanger.
  5. Clip three newborn baby socks to the twine.

Save the extra socks and add them to a Baby Shower Bouquet (below). That way, the baby will have a matching pair.

Add a Baby Bouquet, and make the baby shower one to remember!

This wreath was a lot of fun to make, and my daughter helped out and wrapped the wreath for me. I hope you have fun with it, too!

Happy crafting.

    This is so cute! I have a baby shower to attend in August. This would be so cute!

  5. Aren’t these sweet! When my adult, married niece was pregnant with her first, her aunts gave a great baby shower. I created one of those baby sock and baby onesies flower pots. Got the idea from Youtube. Also, I made corsages for the Mom-to-be and both Grandmas-to-be from sweet little baby socks as rolled flowers. We had so much fun that day! Thank you for sharing these adorable items!
