A teddy bear diaper cake is a creative and super cute birth gift that is not only visually eye-catching and practical. The cute teddy is ideal for presenting small gifts, money or even big surprises. With these step-by-step instructions, you can easily make a cute bear diaper cake yourself in 45 minutes!
The birth of a baby in the family, among friends or dear colleagues is a wonderful occasion to get creative yourself and conjure up a special gift for the birth. From my own experience, I can only say: practical gifts that can be used and consumed always go down well! Money for the expensive and precious treasure, of course, too – because especially with the first baby, there is a lot of money to be spent on nappies and initial equipment.
What does a baby use the most? Nappies! So it’s no surprise that cakes made of nappies are now an absolute baby gift classic. Even more creative and original is to make a teddy bear diaper cake: suitable for a girl or a boy or gender-neutral. And it’s not any harder than making a nappy cake and doesn’t take any longer with my step-by-step instructions.
The great thing about making a bear diaper cake is that you can decorate and personalise the cute teddy with small gifts to suit your budget: it makes just as much of an inexpensive little gift as it does a bigger one! I have listed and linked inspiration for making and designing teddy bear diaper cakes here after the craft instructions. They are extra tips and ideas for small birth gifts for a girl and a boy that will hopefully save you time. Otherwise, you’ll be like me and the hours will fly by as you browse online shops and amazon* for the cutest little gifts and accessories for the cute diaper cake.

You don’t need any crafting experience to make a teddy bear diaper cake. Depending on how skilled you are, it only takes around 45 minutes to make the teddy bears yourself.
My two bear diaper cakes were gifts for the birth of twins. They had quite a weight with the gifts together and I used a chipboard instead of cardboard as a base and sawed out a heart in the required size with the jigsaw.
Pink for a girl, light blue for a boy or keep everything gender-neutral in green or red? Which gifts suit the parents and the baby particularly well? What can they use best?
Absolutely every mum and dad is happy about practical gifts from the drugstore, such as calendula cream, spoons, organic products for eating and drinking. There are also decorative shampoos and soap dispensers – but you don’t use them at all for the baby in the first time, you only use a little high-quality oil and water for cleaning and bathing.
A little more expensive but all the nicer is one or more personalised gifts that the bear diaper cake wears, for example. A sweet baby bath towel with embroidered names, an engraved bracelet or a funny bodysuit or a personalised dummy necklace is indeed very much appreciated.
Have fun making, designing and giving your teddy bear diaper cake!
