As if December wasn't busy enough getting ready for Christmas, I also co-hosted a
jungled-themed baby shower for my sister-in-law!
It has been so fun being pregnant at the same time as her. She's due about a month before me, and expecting a little boy, too!
Luckily for this shower, there was another super crafty lady, Tracey, involved who made some super cute projects.
She created this absolutely amazing diaper cake and decorated a basket full of party favors.
I made a tower of "cupcakes" from baby washcloths and diapers.
These were super simple to make. I wrapped them with felt and decorative ribbon.
(You can find the tutorial for making the diaper cupcakes here!)
My absolute most favorite thing I made for the shower was this little frame!
The frame itself is from Hobby Lobby. I inked it up with some brown distress ink to make the flourishes a little bolder and added the blue lace. The phrase I printed on some patterned scrapbook paper.
I think I'm going to make another one of these for my nursery!

The text is in brown and can easily be used for a boy or girl's room by printing it on blue or pink paper.
I decorated some extra large clothepins with giraffe print ribbon and wooden animal figures. We used these to hold some cardboard baby signs.
I made some larger cupcakes out of burp cloths and felt. They acted as centerpieces on the tables and were used as weights to hold down balloons.

Some altered baby boy garland we hung from the gift table. I substituted some of the clothing items with jungle animals I made using my Silhouette.
One of the games we played was writing down words of wisdom for the soon to be mommy. I made her a little album to put all of her "wisdom" in. We did this game early on during the shower so I was able to put the little cards of wisdom into the book for her before the end of the shower.
And, of course, there had to be a belly picture. I think my sis definitely has me beat in size!
But then again, she is due a month before me.
And I feel like I am way bigger than this now and its only a month later!
