Diaper castle cake

Hi this is my first post!
I made a diaper castle cake today. It took 2 bags of luvs size 2.(100 diapers)
You will need 2 Blue foam sheets. Fold into 4 and cut each cone out. Staple and trim to get the desired shape.
Three spools of ribbon and some easter grass since it's close to easter.
To make the bottom layer.
I took 20 diapers and folded them in half where the crease already is. ( weave them left and right of one another) fasten & tie them with the ribbon
do three rows of 20 diapers and fastened them with the sheer white ribbon. And then tied them all together.
The second layer. I took 20 and did the same thing.
I took 6 and rolled them gently into a circle and tied with the ribbon tied with a bow. The top layer I tied the remaining together in the same manner as the first set and tied together. Then I tied each layer together so they are all fastened together I used hot glue to fasten four towers to the corners of the middle row (becareful not to get glue on the diapers. I insert some foam inbetween ribbon to ribbon so the diapers stay nice. I then glued the last two on top of each end of the top row. Twist cones on top of each tower.
I then fasten bows and add easter grass. This is for a cousin! Hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it.
