Baby showers, wedding showers, bridal showers, oh my! If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed at the onslaught of events like these, we hope this creative gift idea will help! Keep reading for step-by-step instructions on recreating the cutest baby shower gift: a DIY Onesie Cupcake.


What you’ll need: one piece of baby clothing, safety pins, a small coffee filter


Step 1: Fold

Start by folding the arms of the onesie inwards, and then fold the entire onesie in half so that the legs of the onesie come together. Your onesie should now be in an oblong shape.


Step 2: Roll

Next, you want to roll up the clothing, from one side of the longest end to the other. Be sure to roll the fabric tight.


Step 3: Pin

To secure the roll, pin the fabric in place using a safety pin. 


Step 4: Adjust

Now, you can begin to fashion the onesie to resemble a cupcake. You can do this by adjusting the fabric on the rolled sides. Start by pulling the center of the roll out a little bit to create the tip of the frosting. Continue to adjust the outside layers of the roll so that it begins to resemble the frosted top of a cupcake. Feel free to add a second pin if your roll is beginning to come apart.


Step 5: Complete

Once you are happy with the shape of your creation, (meaning that it closely resembles a cupcake top), you can place it into a coffee filter, which will act as the cupcake liner.
