Pinterest Crazy!!!

Soooo...I admit that I'm a little addicted to Pinterest.....It's amazing how many awesome ideas are out there!  If you follow my blog, you know that my sister was pregnant and gave birth to my niece at the end of January.  When my boys were born, my mom made a fab banner for my hospital door, so I wanted to do something similar for my sister.  I saw a really cute diaper wreath on Pinterest that inspired me to make a diaper wreath for her hospital door and a matching wreath for the front door of her house.  The entry of her house has double doors, so she hung both when they got home from the hospital.

All of the supplies were purchased a dollar-type store and a craft store.  I used a straw wreath from the dollar store as my base.  I wrapped diapers around the wreath and wrapped a rubber band around the ends to secure them.  As I went around the wreath, I scrunched the diapers together to give it a fuller look.  Then I tied ribbon around the diaper ends to cover the rubber bands.  I hot glued one end of ribbon to the wooden "S", looped the ribbon around the wreath and hot glued that end to the back of the "S".  I think it came out pretty cute!  Here's a close up of the wreath:
 I also found this great idea to make a Hospital Survival Guide on Pinterest.  This was so easy to make!!  I now "stalk" this blog: My Own Road.  There I found the printables for this giftie.
Seriously all I did was print, cut out, and use my adhesive runner to make this.  The picture on Jen's blog shows tissue paper, but I used ribbon on the handle of the bag for a different look.  I added some things I thought my sister would need/enjoy:  bobby pins, hair band, trail mix, hard candy, Twizzlers, make up remover wipes, lip balm (not shown), m&ms (not shown), and peanut butter crackers (not shown).

 My brother-in-law is know for his gag-reflex, so I thought it was very important to make him a Daddy Doody Kit (another gem from Pinterest, thank you!)  My mom conspired to make this with me.  We purchased all of the items at a dollar-type store.  The one gallon pail was from a scrapbooking store.
We included: diapers, butt paste, wipes, heavy duty rubber gloves, goggles, face mask, clothespins (for his nose), tongs for diaper disposal, hand sanitizer, room spray, and aspirin (for dad).  Another super easy/super cute gift!
