10 Cutest DIY Baby Boy Projects

Whether it be for a boy baby shower gift or DIY project for your newborn boy, here are my top 10 cute DIY baby boy projects that I want to work on.  All of them are so cute and clever and most of the connecting links will send you to the DIY instructions.

1) DIY Baby Bow Tie

No Sew Bow Ties are so easy to make and if you are bad or scared of your sewing machine, well, don't worry about that when you make these.

Here is another bow tie option I found online.  You can add a snap on a onesie and the back of the ties to make these adorable bow ties stay on your baby's outfit.  Love that idea.
Found online but didn't have a blog/website associated with it. 

2) DIY Football blanket

I think these football blankets are so cute! I love how the front is brown minky shaped football and the back you can add your favorite football team fabric!  Football season is around the corner and this would be quick and easy to make and a great idea as a floor mat for your baby boy as well.

3) DIY Onesies

This by far is the cutest DIY onesie out there! Love the fabric they chose and the instructions walk you step by step how to get the right shape of onesie and put on the edge stuff.  So cute and an excellent idea when you have left over fabric.

Another adorable onesie idea is the onesie cardigan.  If you have basic onesies lying around that you want to add some spunk or color, this is super easy to cut your onesie and add the edge (can't remember the name) and the buttons.

4) DIY Baby Wall art

Do you have a cute theme for your baby boy's nursery?  Cars, planes, nautical, cowboy, sports.. whatever it might be, I love these cute ideas that you can incorporate with your baby's bedroom theme.

Using the first letter of your baby's name, you can add cars (like this picture below) or sports balls, planes, or whatever you would like.
Found online but didn't have a blog/website associated with it. 

I see these everywhere in nurseries. Find an alphabet online (or type it into Word) and change the color of your baby's initial and put his name at the bottom.  Boom, that simple!

5) Baby Stat sheet

Stat sheets are easy to make and you can make them in a variety of ways.  Using different fonts and sizing you can create a stats wall art with your baby's weight, length, date, name, time, and place.

6) DIY Baby Shoes

I love these cute little moccasins and the tutorial (listed below the picture) makes them so much easier than I expected.  There are so many cute leather fabrics to use and binding to make them stand out.

7) DIY Owl Baby Hat

Thought this hat was so adorable! I love the cute owl theme and this was my favorite hat.  Can't knit? Use the hat as inspiration and instead use a material like felt.

8) Floor playmat

There are so many cute playmats these days, I love the cute owl ones I see online along with other cute animals you can make.

9) DIY Pee Pee Teepee

Pee Pee Teepees prevent you from getting wet when changing your boy's diaper.  I never realized how easy they were to make! You don't need a lot of fabric and can quickly whip these out and keep them in a variety of places like your diaper bag, changing table, different areas of the house where you change your baby.

10) DIY Monthly Onesie

These cute onesies can help you create cute pictures of your baby boy at every month during his first year.  I never knew how easy they were to make!
