I love using craft supplies to create fun and creative ways to celebrate life. Whether it’s for a special birthday, the first day of school, or just because, having mini donuts spell out “YAY” always makes for a good time! There are so many ways to customize this DIY donut display project to make it 100% your own creation. You can spell out any word, make homemade mini donuts, or use different colors of paint. The options are endless!
- Darice 12″ Unfinished Wood Letters
- Darice 3/8″ Dowel Rods
- Darice Wood Glue
- Gold Paint Pen (optional)
- White Paint
- Drill/Drill Bit
Step 1. Paint the letters any color you want for your DIY donut display. I was originally going to use pink donuts so I thought the white letters would look nice. Due to extremely hot weather, I had to switch to white powdered donuts so now I’m wishing I had painted the letters bright pink or turquoise. Maybe I’ll switch out the colors for the first day of school!
Step 3. Use an appropriately sized drill bit to make holes for the dowels in the center of the letters. I just sort of eyeballed the distance from one hole to the other but you could also use a ruler to make the holes perfectly spaced. (You’ll want to make sure that your holes are spaced far enough apart that the donuts will fit next to each other.)
*Plastic wrap can be used to cover the letters and dowel rods to make this a completely food safe display.
Who wouldn’t love to celebrate the first day of school or a graduation with this Donut Party Display?! You could spell out “LOVE” for a wedding, a baby’s name for a shower, or even a graduation year. The options for this DIY donut display go on and on!
