But, really, the best part about these fun baby shower decorations is the way they came together so easily. The kids could even help to make them, if you want, they’re that simple.

So, before you head out to find a gift today for your new mama, let’s get to making some jungle animal baby shower centerpieces!

Necessary Tools:

Making a DIY centerpiece for a baby shower really can be as simple or as complex as you’d like. To make these fun coconut tree centerpieces, I only needed a couple of tools to make this project (which is seriously one of the best ever).

Necessary Materials to Make This Jungle Theme Baby Shower Centerpiece Idea:

Now, the list of materials might seem a bit long, but really, it’s just a few little things you can find around. To make these easy DIY baby animal centerpieces, I only needed three things:

  • Quality Card Stock Paper
  • Free Printable for the Baby Jungle Animals (below)
  • White Faux Flowers
  • Dark Green Faux Leaves
  • 2-3 1-inch Foam Balls
  • 6-inch Burlap Ribbon
  • Brown Craft Felt
  • Bamboo Skewer Stick
  • Wood Round
  • Small Amount of Moss
  • Cardboard Tube (Paper Towel Roll or Similar)

Oh, and my Cricut and the light grip mat. I needed that, too.

Tips to Make Jungle Themed Centerpieces for a Baby Shower:

Now these are super easy to make and you can totally over think them. So I came up with a few tips to make sure you’re getting the most awesome centerpiece for your effort.

  • Heavy wood rounds, when glued to tall, light things like paper rolls, will hold up just about anything. You can almost affix a wood round to anything to keep it standing up.
  • Don’t go overboard with your faux flowers and leaves–this is supposed to be a coconut tree…so keep the foliage light.
  • Remember: the focus is supposed to be on the baby jungle animals. So, feel free to add whatever, but keep it light.
  • If you want to make your centerpieces two-sided, simply mirror the image when you do the print-and-cut in Cricut Design Space. This will give you a perfect mirror for each of the jungle baby animal medallions that you can just glue to the other side of the bamboo stick.
  • The biggest tip, though? Don’t over think this. You are going to surround these centerpieces with more party decor and fun stuff, so it’s just going to be a little pop of color amid a sea of fun stuff!

Jungle Baby Shower Food Ideas:

  • Rotel Dip With Ground Beef – For a wild time enjoying some appetizers at your baby shower, you should always have a good, reliable cheese dip on the table that everyone will enjoy.
  • Hawaiian Blue Mocktail – Don’t monkey around with adult-only drinks. That’s not done anymore. Instead, make this awesome mocktail that all the guests will beg for!
  • Meat and Cheese Plate Ideas – Charcuterie is the newest trend that’s been around forever and ever. And these ideas are the best you’ll find.

Fun Jungle Baby Shower Decorations:

If this is your first or your five-hundredth baby shower, you probably are searching for more than just a centerpiece you can make…you probably want a full-on coordinated set.

Good news for you, I’ve go this jungle baby shower down-pat!

Plus there’s more. Just be sure to check back and search the site. I mean to go overboard!

More Baby Shower Food Ideas:

Oh, you’re loving this idea for a jungle themed baby shower for your daughter’s baby shower? And you know the baby jungle animals were perfect from the moment you saw them? (I think, if I had one, this would be perfect for my daughter’s first baby–so I get it.) But she’s not even pregnant yet? Oh.

Well, that’s ok!

Just pin this to your favorite party planning ideas board on Pinterest so you can find it again super-quick when it is time.

Jungle Themed Baby Shower Centerpiece

What do you do with these jungle themed baby shower centerpieces? You can use them as table decor, use them as table markers (you know, if you have a large party and need to identify which table each party sits at) or you can just use them to designate the table for gifts.

Either way, these are great decorations for your jungle baby animal shower. Just toss them on any table and your guests are going to be absolutely giddy with enjoyment!

And making these simple party centerpieces is so easy, so fast, you literally could make a little forest of coconut trees for your party. Just remember to leave room for the other decorations.
