Have A Leak Free Holiday with Luvs + GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Luvs. All Opinions are 100% mine. 

I remember when my oldest son Giovanni was born his diapers would always 
leak. One time during the holidays we were at church and of course my baby 
is sitting on my lap when suddenly i feel warmth all down my leg. Yes! My 
little man had peed all over my jeans. I felt so embarrassed after the service was 
over and i had to walk around with peed pants for our party. After that day i 
said its time to try new diapers and thats were Luvs came in handy! 
They are the only diapers that i use now for my second baby & the ones i 
recommend to my family & friends. 

Luvs diapers, a trusted name in baby care, knows that the holiday season is full of 
stressful moments, but they don't want diaper leaks to be one of them. This 
holiday, Luvs wants everyone to celebrate a Leak-Free Holiday. Luvs with NightLock 
offers its largest absorbency area EVER to help lock wetness away, which 
means less leaks during the holiday season for baby and more time for parents 
to enjoy the festivities.

season of holiday miracles! And this year, Luvs is turning clicks into diapers.

DIY Holiday Decor

DIY #1 Garland Tree 

You will need: 
-Thin Garland $2
-Small Poster .50
-Glue gun, tape, & scissors 

Step 1: Fold your squared poster into a cone shape. 
Step 2: Once you have the cone shape you like tape it down 
so it stays in place and cut the excess off. 
Step 3: make sure its straight so it stands even. 
Step 4: Start gluing little by little and start wrapping the 
garland on (step 5) 
Step 6 & 7: Continue putting glue and wrapping around until you get 
to the top and voila your done! 

Make sure you glue the garland very close to each other 
so you don't have any gaps showing. 

 DIY #2 Garland Tree (No Glue) 

You will need: 
-Garland (target $3) 
-Poster Board .50 (used half of it) 
-Tape, Scissors, Glue(optional) 

Step 1: Make a cone just like in the first cone but this time 
leave a small opening on top. 
Step 2: Insert about 2 inches of the garland inside the hole. 
Step 3: Start wrapping the garland around not to loose but 
tight enough so it doesn't move around. 
Step 4 & 5: Continue to wrap around (make sure there are no 
gaps but this one doesn't have to be as close when you wrap 
it around because its a thicker garland) 
Step 6: You can add a dot of glue and paste it together (step7) 

DIY #3 Vase filled with ornaments 

You will need: 
-Any vase of your choice (mine are from the dollar tree $4) 
- Box of ornaments $1 
-Twine $1 

Step 1& 2: Start filling up your vase with different balls. 
Step 3: Wrap around some twine around the top part of 
the vase and simply tie a bow when you have wrapped 
it around as much as you want. Thats it! 

Easy, simple, and very affordable!! I purchased everything from 
the dollar tree except for the gold garland which i got at target 
on sale using cartwheel. If you recreate any of these holiday decor ideas
