This week we celebrate National Donut Day, and who does not want to celebrate a day dedicated to donuts!? I know I do. I will definitely be eating one (or two, or three)! My favourite donut is a classic dipped donut with sprinkles, which was the inspiration for this DIY Donut Trinket Box. It’s great for the little ones to store their favourite mini toys, candies, or hair ties in.
-round “paper mache” box (from craft store)
-paint (brown = chocolate or white = vanilla)
-glitter paper (I used a variety of pinks, white and silver)
-glitter glue (optional)
Paint the box (use brown paint to make a chocolate donut or white paint to a make a vanilla donut). Let dry.
To make the icing, use the box lid as a template for the outer circle and trace. Use a smaller circle (I used the paint bottle) as a template for the inner circle and trace.
Cut out the inner circle line and cut a squiggly edge (using the outer circle line as a guide).
Decorate! Try using different types of beads, glitter glue, or anything else you can imagine.
Glue the icing to the lid.
Ta-da! Fill with treasures.
