Crafts for a Baby Shower Made From Napkins

There are few, if any, events in a woman's life that would rank as more exciting than having a baby. Women gather at baby showers to dote on the expectant mother and to talk about babies and childbirth. A hostess wants to do her best to create a fun and memorable party for the mom-to-be and her guests.

Paper Napkin Baby Shirt

Unfold the first layer of a square dinner napkin. Fold the two outside edges in toward the centre and fold the top two inside corners to form the collar of the baby shirt. To create an envelope to hold utensils, use double-sided tape along the two inside edges and inside of the bottom of the napkin. This will seal off the bottom and create a pouch for the utensils. Embellish the shirt with buttons. Use ribbons, lace or doilies to decorate.

Napkin Baby Diaper

Fold a square dinner napkin into a triangle (corner to corner diagonally). Lay the napkin down with the folded side of the triangle on top. Fold the three points to the middle of the napkin and secure it with a diaper pin to hold all three points together. The napkin now looks like a cloth diaper. Use diaper napkins at each place setting to hold eating utensils.

Bunny Fold

Fold a pastel-coloured fabric napkin into a bunny for a baby shower. Fold the napkin in half to form a triangle. Roll the napkin, starting from the small point end working toward the long side. Fold the roll in half and tie a ribbon about 1 inch from the fold. The points will become the bunny ears. Use water-soluble glue to attach googly eyes and a small pom-pom nose.

Fresh Flower Pocket

Surprise your favourite mom-to-be with fresh-cut flowers tucked into her napkins. Use water vials (available at craft stores) to keep flowers looking fresh. Lay the napkin flat and fold it in half widthways, keeping the folded edge toward you. Fold the top layer back halfway down. Turn the napkin over, and fold the edges to the middle and fold napkin in half.
