Check out magazines and newspapers. Display in a scrapbook or on a poster at the baby shower. Decorate with any appropriate baby trinkets, and be sure to stick with the baby shower DOBBY Fabric Manufacturers theme. Who doesn't like a good laugh? And no one will need one more than a new mother after she's had several sleepless nights and lots of dirty diapers to change!Baby shower crafts that takes a little bit of planning but makes a fabulous sentimental gift is a handprint quilt. You will need to precut quilt squares to do this. Choose fabric and style to match the mother's nursery d?cor. Make sure you have enough squares ? one for each baby shower guest.
As baby shower guests arrive at the baby shower, have them stick their hand in paint and make a simple handprint on a single square and sign their name. Try glitter, silver or gold fabric paint for a decorative touch. Let them dry. Then someone sews together the finished project. Optional: leave room for a larger block in the middle that says the baby's name, birth date if known, and the phrase "Surrounded by Love".Finally, the favorite baby shower crafts ? this one's to be done during the actual baby shower.
You will need one or two disposable cameras, access to a one hour photo developer, a scrapbook and scrapbooking supplies, and a couple of volunteers. For more information on baby shower scrapbooking ideas go to our page on Scrap Booking Tips.As baby shower guests arrive, take a picture of each baby shower guest with the mother or mother and baby, and take several random, candid pictures. You want to photograph the decorations, the table setting, and the baby shower cake if there is one.When the cameras are full, have a volunteer rush to have them developed. I suggest calling your store in advance to let them know what you are doing and to make sure they can meet your time restraints.
Then, when the baby shower pictures return, start scrapbooking! Ideally, baby shower guests would get to do the page with their picture on it. Usually, it's easy to keep this project a secret and present at the end of the baby shower.The mother has an instant keepsake, and again you have saved her valuable time and energy. Whether you're scrapbooking or not, be sure to take lots of pictures. Be sure to set aside adequate space for these baby shower crafts, and delegate as many tasks as possible.?
