Diaper Rocking Horse

Get ready for some serious cuteness! Angie sent in an ADORABLE picture of a diaper rocking horse she made for a her first grandbaby. She did a fabulous job putting it together.

If you would like to make one that is useable, you will need to alter the instructions a little. But even as is, it is a beautiful and fun baby shower gift that will be cherished. Thanks so much for sharing your baby shower craft with us Angie!

Angie's baby rocking horse instructions:

First I cut out my rockers from cardboard. The body is made of a oatmeal container and the face and legs are made from paper towel rollers. I just wrapped my diapers around the the container and paper towel rolls. I had to glue them together. By having to do that this rocking horse can not be used it's only for looks(sorry). I am having my first grandbaby soon and I wanted to give her something different that she can save.

After the horse was put together, I cut the nipple of a pacifier off and glued it to the mouth so it looks more babyish. The hair is made from yarn and also glued. You can make a saddle out of just about any fabric you choose. I used a small saddle from a real rocking horse that was given to me and I decorated it as I wanted it to look with ribbon. Any questions you might have, feel free to comment and I'll do my best to answer it.

I've been online looking at various diaper rocking horse cakes, and this is the only realistic one I found! I know you said you glued it, but I'm going to try my best not to glue it.

I've made Harley Davidson Motorcycle Diaper cakes and different 2, 3 and 4 tier diaper cakes. But I do love yours! Thank you for the inspiration!
