If you’ve been following, you know we’ve been having a love affair with papier maché lately. It all began with a papier maché Christmas tree my crafty friend, Camille, made and then we made a V-Day Heart, giant Easter eggs, and now this irresistible donut! I have to admit, we were inspired for this one by Kelly of the Studio DIY blog who is the queen of donuts! We just had to give her a shout out. Can’t wait to see what funny craft ideas she’ll come up with next week. Apparently, June 5th is National Donut Day! Well, donuts can have their National day too, can’t they? In my book, it means it’s the perfect excuse to throw a donut party. I like the idea, a lot.
And then Camille couldn’t stop, so she made this adorable donut garland. Well, if you’re going to throw a donut party, you need a few fun party decorations! This one is so simple; all you need is thick paper (a cereal box would work great), acrylic paint, brushes and baker’s twine.
Click here for all the detailed steps on making papier maché. We explained everything is an earlier post.
A fun thing to do with your crafts would be to setup a cute corner to take some party pictures of your guests. Add a few cute props like a chair, a plant, or this cute cactus! The donut poster is handmade and pretty simple to achieve. The trick is to draw the lines with a paper pencil first, then grab your brushes and go for it! It does not need to be perfect.
Strike a pose and have fun with your guests! As you can see, we don’t take ourselves very seriously 😉
This papier maché donut is a keeper, I’m going to use it as a decor item in the studio, it would also look so cute on a bookshelf!
