Fun and Easy Baby Shower Crafts

Baby shower crafts can be fun and easy to make. Here are some practical ideas to make sure your baby shower is a huge success. All you need is a little money, a little bit of time, and a whole lot of heart. These baby craft ideas are perfect for any baby shower.

There are all kinds of baby shower craft ideas, ranging from simple and inexpensive to elaborate and time-consuming. You can choose the project that is right for you based on your budget and the amount of planning and preparation time you have. Baby shower Crafts can made before the baby shower or during the baby shower. Again, it is up to you, but here are some things you might want to consider.

A fun baby shower craft idea to do during the baby shower is to personalize baby gifts as they are opened. Of course, be sure the baby's name is set in stone before you begin this one! All you need to do these baby shower crafts is a variety of color fabric paint pens bought at any craft supply store.

For instance, when the mother opens a baby shower gift, the most artistic one in the group can decoratively write the baby's name on the side of the baby shower gift. Be sure to check with the mother and see if she is interested in this idea. This can save her time, as most baby shower gifts will need to be labeled anyway. Certain baby shower gifts may not be appropriate for labeling; use your best judgment. Also, some drying time may need to be allowed. Take care to prevent smudging!

Another great baby shower craft idea for involving an older brother or sister is to have him or her paint a picture or write a short baby poem or letter for the new baby. When finished, this project framed and matted simply becomes one of the most meaningful baby shower gifts, no matter how artistically done. The older sibling will feel pride in their part of welcoming their new baby brother or sister. Hang or display in a prominent place in the baby's nursery.

A baby themed comic collection is another great baby shower craft idea to help lighten the rough days. Baby shower crafts of this kind takes a little more time and preparation, but what an enjoyable collection when finished!

Enlist others to help hunt down the best and funniest baby themed comics around. 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 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 décor. 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.
