How to Make a Beautiful Owl Diaper Cake

My sister’s baby shower was last month, and I wanted to do something extra special for her.  She has always loved owls, so I thought I’d make an owl diaper cake for her shower.  I thought about doing a traditional diaper cake, and using owl themed items to decorate it. When I saw a tutorial for a diaper cake that actually looks like an owl, though, I knew I just had to make one for her! This post contains affiliate links and I may earn a commission if you make a purchase after clicking a link in this post.

I love that this owl diaper cake is very easy to make and doesn’t require a whole lot of materials. You’ll have lots of fun shopping for coordinating bibs, wash cloths and receiving blankets.

I was able to make two of these owl diaper cakes in a matter of about 20 minutes.  The first one was so fun, and came out so cute, that I just had to make another! Aren’t they absolutely adorable? I couldn’t stop gushing over them! They were definitely the talk of my sister’s baby shower. I had so many compliments on them, and my sister loved them!

Watch the video below to learn how to make these owls.  I followed the tutorial step-by-step for the most part, and made just a slight change to my owls. I made wings from the receiving blanket, instead of using additional wash cloths. Check out the great selection of owl diaper cake materials on Amazon. There are so many fun and cute designs and colors to choose from!
