A baby laundry basket gift is the perfect shower idea for the mom-to-be.
I just love buying baby shower gifts! Celebrating new life, and getting to buy all those fun baby items is a blast! I always like to come up with a creative way to arrange my gift, and this fun baby laundry gift is easy to make. No craft skills are necessary – so anyone can do it!
Run the dowel rods through the side of the laundry basket. Start from the top hole in the laundry basket and put the dowel rod through it from the inside of the basket. Push it down to the bottom hole, and push it back in the basket through the hole. The dowels will both bow slightly as shown below.
Put the diapers and wipes at the bottom of the basket. The reason plastic packages work better is that they have flexibility. They also help to make your basket appear full. Cover the wipes and diapers with the fleece blanket. Put it over the items loosely. You want to make it appear to be a basket filled with laundry, so it it can appear haphazard.
You can then add in additional baby items to fill the basket more. Lay the onesies over the edge of the basket (so it looks like laundry falling out. You could use baby towels, washcloths or even burp rags if you would like.
Use four of the banners and write the letters B, A, B, Y on them. I cut the banner string so that it would fit the width of the rods. You could change this up by adding the baby’s name, the word BOY or GIRL…anything will work!
The gift was a hit, and was so easy. And there’s no wrong way to assemble items in the basket, so no stress that you will do it wrong! I’d love to see pictures of how yours turned out!
