This is super easy to make, you just need scraps of fabric. You could have a lot of fun with different types of fabric. Since we still don't know if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl, I chose a variety of colors. I actually made one for my own front door that says "welcome." You can read about how to make one of these wreaths HERE.
Another thing I like to do for the new mom is to make thank you cards and have all the guests fill out their name and address on an envelope.
One of my favorite things I contributed to this shower were the Mustaches and Bows. Isn't this a fun way to vote on the gender of the baby?
I found some fuzzy fabric at the local craft store in both brown and black. Then I made a template out of paper for a guide. I used hot glue to attach each stash onto a Bar Pin. They sell the Bar Pins in packs of 30 and you can find them in the jewelry making section of most craft stores. I was planning to make my own bows with some ribbon but I found packs of 5 in the clearance section for 10 cents and I had a coupon.
Last but not least here's a fun gift idea.
Who do you know that couldn't use some extra money when they're expecting a new baby? You could have a piggy bank at the shower for a decoration and tell the guests ahead of time to bring a little extra money. I actually contacted some friends that I knew wouldn't be able to make it to the shower and they lovingly filled that piggy bank up. I can't wait to tell you more about that piggy bank, it's something I've been keeping a secret for a loooooong time.
Do you have any other awesome baby shower ideas? I would love for you to share them. I have a few more friends that are expecting and I hope to contribute some fun things for their showers.
