1. Break Out the Fabric Markers

Not a fan of traditional baby shower games? Consider setting up a bodysuit decorating station with fabric markers. You don’t need to be Picasso to create a cute design for the parents-to-be. All you need is a little creativity! Of course, it’s still a good idea to provide templates for guests who may be less artistically inclined. Tulip Color has a great tutorial on how to create a Onesies® brand bodysuit decorating station with fabric markers.

2. Stencil a Onesies® Brand Bodysuit

If freehand drawing isn’t your thing, stenciling is another fun way to create a DIY gift for the baby. All you need to do is lay the stencil over the bodysuit (make sure you’re on a flat surface!) and paint over it. Super simple, right? To make your gift even more special, consider ordering a custom stencil that includes a personalized saying (e.g., “My Aunt Becca Loves Me!”).

3. Use Iron-On Transfers

While fabric markers and paint are fun for baby showers, the end results can be hit or miss. If you want your Onesies® Brand Bodysuits to come out looking super cute and professional every time, opt for an iron-on transfer. Your guests may require a little more assistance with the ironing part, but your bodysuit will come out looking adorable! Learn how to pull it off with this easy iron-on bodysuit tutorial from See Vanessa Craft.

4. Sew on Suspenders and a Bowtie

Is the mom-to-be expecting a baby boy? Turn a blank Onesies® Brand Bodysuit into a dapper outfit for her little man with this DIY tutorial from The Sits Girls. All you need is a bit of fabric, some ribbon, and a needle and thread.

5. Sew on a Ruffle Bottom

A ruffle-bottom bodysuit is too cute for words and makes for a one-of-a-kind DIY baby gift! It’s also the perfect outfit for newborn photoshoots. Find out how to make ruffle bottom bodysuits from the team at U Create.

6. Make a Onesies® Brand Bodysuit Wreath

If you’re looking for a creative DIY baby shower gift idea, look no further than this adorable baby bodysuit wreath tutorial by This Florida Mom. To make this gift, you’ll wrap baby bodysuits and pants around a wire rack. To finish it, secure it with a ribbon.

7. Create a Onesies® Brand Bodysuit Memory Blanket

There’s a reason we saved this one for last! If you’re the mama-to-be, consider hanging onto your most treasured bodysuits after your baby outgrows them. If you have sewing skills or know someone who does, you can turn these bodysuits into a special blanket that is sure to become an heirloom. You can also use other baby items — like bibs, burp cloths and receiving blankets — to create a wonderfully unique blanket for the baby.
