Take a set of diapers (depends on how big you want the wreath), roll each diaper tightly and hold it with a rubber band then wrap it with a ribbon. Apply glue to the ribbon (not to the diaper -to the ribbon) and stick it to the donut cardboard firmly. Follow this for each diaper roll. For further decoration, you can add artificial flowers or tassels to your diaper wreath.

Or choose two or three colors of tassels and repeat the same combination again and again to complete the garland. Make sure the colors you choose suit the theme of the baby shower.
A bead is a decorative object that is available in several shapes, sizes, and colors of different materials such as stone, bone, shell, glass, plastic, wood or pearl. Beads have a small hole for threading or stringing. We can make use of beads in the baby shower decorations in the form of a curtain (which are assembled in a rod) to give a graceful backdrop. Furthermore, you can use the bead curtain in the place of a door or to decoratively cover a window. Besides that, you can assemble the beads in a hoop and use it as a wind chime.
