Simple DIY Baby Shower Gift

Posted in Holidays by

What do you get someone who is expecting their third little one? They most likely have everything they need already, so why even have a shower?

Personally, I think it’s just as important to shower the mama with baby inspired gifts this time around, as it was the first time. Even if all you get them is a giant basket of (enter their favorite junk food here). They are still going through a tremendous amount of change with their bodies and deserve the extra love.

My 5 year old’s kindergarten teacher is expecting her third and we are attending her baby shower soon. Since this is her third boy, I’m fairly certain she has all the clothes and baby stuff she’ll need, so for this shower, Miss Z and I are getting crafty and we’re going to make a gorgeous DIY Baby Shower Gift.

This DIY Baby Shower Gift is gorgeous and so much fun for the kiddos to make.

We made a rainbow hearts craft with two hearts. One large heart, with a smaller heart inside. I know it’s cheesy, but how perfect is that for a baby shower? Mama’s heart, with baby’s heart?! So adorable. And I have to say here, it was my daughter’s idea to make the craft this way. (So proud!)

Visit Twitchetts here for full instructions and a list of supplies for this craft. They also have a great video that shows exactly how to do it!

For this project, first cut out a large heart from a folded piece of paper.

Then, cut the little heart from the center of the large heart. This DIY Baby Shower Gift is gorgeous and so much fun for the kiddos to make.

Open it up and apply double stick tape. Then tape it to your piece of white paper.

(I did the cutting for this craft, and my daughter did all of the colorful, fun stuff.) I did the cutting for this craft, and my daughter did all of the colorful, fun stuff. 

With the pastels, start with the center heart. After that part is done, do the large, outside heart.

Once that is done, remove the cut out heart and admire your (kiddo’s) work.  This DIY Baby Shower Gift is gorgeous and so much fun for the kiddos to make.

To finish this gift off, we wanted to put it in a frame. But first, we had used a 8.5x11in sheet of paper. And the closest frame size is an 8×10 (womp, womp).

The simplest way (for me, anyway) to trim the paper is to first take out the glass from the frame. Very carefully center it on your picture. Using a pencil, draw a soft line along the edges of the glass.This DIY Baby Shower Gift is gorgeous and so much fun for the kiddos to make. Then remove the glass, and carefully cut the edges off. Or, if you have an exacto knife, you can cut the edges off with the glass in place, just be sure you have it on a surface that won’t scratch.

This craft is honestly so simple and so much fun! It would also be a fantastic gift for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Grandmother’s Day…the list goes on.

Who do you think would love to receive this gift from your little one?
