Baby Shower Crafts

I've spent the last two days making fun stuff for my niece's baby shower. I'm almost positive she doesn't read my bog. (I have another niece who drops by from time to time. Hi, Katie!)

Julia made 24 chocolate-covered Oreos for favors. My mother, the happy Great-Grandmother, helped tie on the little pacifiers and bows.

There are people in my family who don't understand this crafty obsession and will think this corsage is ridiculous. But come on, how cute is this? (If she won't wear it, at least it looks good on the basket.)

I had seen some baby wreaths online, but I can't remember where, so I had to make it up as I went along. (I thought Jodi made one, but I can't find it.) I wrapped and scrunched washcloths around a styrofoam ring, pinned into the back. Cute baby socks are rolled into roses. I added a brush, a binkie and a bow. Cute now, useful later!

Then I had to make a pennant banner because everyone is doing it! A few sheets of scrapbook paper, some awesome ric-rac, some cutting, gluing, and stitching. Easy peasy!

We can't wait to see the Mom- and Dad-to-be and the rest of my family this weekend!

How adorable! The family members who don't understand are usually the first that come and want your help decorating for some occasion later on down the road.
