I have a little fun planned this week, as I’m thinking ahead to National Donut Day on June 2. (Yes, June! It’s almost here, can you believe it?) I’m hoping that this week’s donut crafts will inspire you to host your own Donut Party to celebrate National Donut Day. To start, I’m sharing this sparkling, sweet & sprinkled DIY Donut Wreath.
To make a Donut Wreath, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12”, wreath with beveled front
- Acrylic craft paint in brown
- Fabric with sprinkles pattern, fat quarter size*
- Glitter, crystal clear
- Paper for pattern (I used wax paper)
- Chenille stem
- Thick, white craft glue
- Spray adhesive
- Tools needed: Scissors; marker; stiff paintbrush; newspaper
*I ordered a fat quarter from Spoonflower. (Spoonflower is my rabbit hole!)
To make a Donut Wreath:
1. Paint wreath brown and let dry.
2. Trace around the wreath on paper. Draw a scallop edge around the outside. Cut out and place the pattern on your wreath. Be sure you like how the scallop edge will look; if you don’t like it, make a new pattern. (I didn’t like my first pattern, and revised it to create a new scalloped edge.)
3. Using pattern, cut out the sprinkles fabric, and glue fabric to the front of the wreath.
4. Spread out newspaper, and working in a well ventilated area, lightly spray the wreath with spray adhesive. Sprinkle with crystal clear glitter. Let dry.
5. Twist together ends of a 4” length of chenille stem to form a hanging loop. Insert and glue in the back of the wreath.
Kudos to Barb, who guessed the answer to last week’s riddle: What has no beginning, no end and no middle? Answer: A donut!
