While my baby diapering days are admittedly over, there is nothing I love more than sweet, tiny little babies and helping their mamas prepare to welcome their new additions into the world. Many of my friends are currently pregnant or have recently had babies and for me, watching them bring home their little ones has triggered so many amazing memories of when my own boys were newly born. In fact, just recently my next door neighbor had a little boy and as we talked leading up to her delivery, I found myself thinking back over the best advice I had to offer from when my boys were little. Inspired by our conversation, I decided to help her stock up on the diapers I used for my own boys while also creating the perfect baby shower gift of a simple yet adorable Truck Diaper Cake!

2 Pieces of Cardboard

How to Make It
This Truck Diaper Cake is actually super simple to make and it’s a fun baby shower gift that is always a hit! I love that my Truck Diaper Cake is made almost entirely out of diapers and can be given along with the bulk size boxes of Huggies Little Snugglers and Natural Care Wipes from Sam’s Club! To start this fun Truck Diaper Cake, I needed wheels. After pulling out four of my Huggies diapers, I laid them on the table, spreading them into a line but overlapping them.
Starting at the bottom, I simply rolled the diapers up into a circle and used a piece of ribbon to tie around them, creating the look of a wheel.
Once I had repeated this process four times to create my wheels, I cut one of my pieces of cardboard into a long rectangle that could sit on top of the wheels and serve as the base for the body of my truck. One I had the size I wanted cut out, I used my double sided tape to attach my wheels and make my base stable to finish my Truck Diaper Cake.
To create the body and bed of my truck, I wanted to use diapers and wipes, making this gift one that has both new-baby essentials together. I quickly filled my wipes container that came with my Huggies Natural Care Wipes from Sam’s Club and then placed it on the back half of my piece of cardboard, using a diaper on each side to give it a continuous look. Then I added two stacks of four diapers in front of my wipes container to create a platform for the front of my diaper truck to sit on.
At this point, all that I needed to finish my Truck Diaper Cake was the cab of the truck. After thinking through the look that I wanted to achieve, I cut a strip from my second piece of cardboard and folded it into a cube, leaving the inside hollow.
I then folded my baby blanket in half and wrapped it around the cardboard cube, tucking in the edges and using my double sided tape to secure any loose pieces. Once I had my piece of cardboard covered in my baby blanket, I filled the inside with Huggies Little Snugglers diapers.
Next, I added two pieces of double sided tape to the bottom of my box and placed it on top of the diapers that I had used to create a platform for it. After adding a simple bow made from ribbon, my Truck Diaper Cake was complete!
Just for fun, I added a stuffed animal (after all, somebody needed to drive the truck!) and paired my Truck Diaper Cake with my boxes of Huggies Little Snugglers and Natural Care Wipes from Sam’s Club and I instantly had a baby shower gift that any mama would be excited to receive!
After loading up my boxes of Huggies Diapers and Wipes and my Truck Diaper Cake, I felt confident that I had a great baby shower gift that is truly a full of essentials for any new mom! Just as I know that Huggies Little Snuggers is the fastest growing brand in hospitals and mom preferred over Pampers, I also know that these diapers are the perfect way to help keep newborn’s perfect skin clean and healthy! When paired with the #1 branded Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes, I can feel good about giving a baby shower gift that will continue giving because in addition to being much needed items for new moms, it’s also a perfect way to share with those same moms the knowledge I have that shopping at Sam’s Club is the perfect way to save money!
