Excited to share two fun Donut inspired tutorials with you today!
- Our printable Donut Garland – A lot of people have been messaging me to ask which craft punch (size and brand) I use. I am sharing the information with you today!
- I am also showing how you can make super Mini “Donuts” using toasted cereal. So cute!
The image below I am showcasing both! Aren’t they cute? They made the perfect props for our Donut Invitation design!
DONUT GARLAND TUTORIAL
Here’s what you will need to put together your cute garland:
- Donut Garland printed on white cardstock (We are making the file available for free because we love our readers! yay!) Download yours here: Donut Tags _ DIY Garland
- 2″ craft punch
- 3/4″ craft punch for the middle (donut hole) *I use EK brand found at any craft store!
- Baker’s twine
- Mini clothespins
Directions: (See image below)
- Gather your materials/supplies
- Cut the printed file in strips. Makes it easier for using the craft punch!
- Use your 2″ craft punch to start cutting your donuts
- Punch away!
- Using your 3/4″ start punching the center of the donut
- Use baker’s twine and clothespins to secure your donuts. Voila! Super adorable Donut Garland for your decor purposes!
Note: You will have 12 donuts per page. Print as many pages as you need! You can make a garland any size you want!
Now, let me show you how I made these cute mini cereal donuts! Note: It requires a lot of patience! It can be a relaxing project for when the little ones go to bed or a project to do with the kids.
I know there’s a donut cereal box available at the supermarket, but they are not pink. I needed girly pink with valentine’s day sprinkles *wink *wink
MINI (CEREAL) DONUTS
Here’s what you will need:
- Toasted cereal
- Store bought frosting (flavor of your choice!) I used strawberry flavor!
- Super mini nonpareils and super mini heart sprinkles * Mine are from The Bakers Party Shop. Stop by to check their amazing selection here!
All you have to do is dip each mini cereal in frosting. Sometimes it covers the hole. I used a toothpick to fix that. Easy peasy!
To add the sprinkles, the easiest way to do it is by placing some sprinkles on a plate and dip them one by one (I know, too much time! You will love how cute they will though!) I tried to just sprinkle over the cereal to save myself some time but they wouldn’t stick. Maybe because I live in a such dry city.
You might be wondering how many I decorated. I only did a few really! My little boy loved helping me and my 2 year-old loved eating them!
Take a look at the image below with the step by step:
I hope you enjoyed these two tutorials for your Donut celebrations!
