Well- you can’t have a donut bar birthday party without donuts. Today I’m sharing how I made this drool-worthy Donut Banner for Bee’s 2nd birthday party.
I had every intention of being finished with Bee’s party tutorials by now because I have so many fun blog posts waiting in the wings dating back to…. ohhhhh- September or so! (Yes, I am currently living life months behind… I keep moving the chores on my calendar to the next day. “Monday- clean girls’ room. Tuesday- see Monday list. Wednesday- clean the girls’ room FOR REAL!”)
I have a list 2 pages long of blog posts waiting to be written. Y’all- not ideas of things I could blog about— oh no! These are activities, recipes, and projects I have already done AND have pictures of… Halloween costume tutorials, Christmas Cookie Recipes, home decor…
Anyways, life is just a little hectic for the Walton5 in a normal week and we haven’t had a normal week in a month so here I am in May still churning out birthday party tutorials. My goal is to have all of these birthday decorations hanging out on your Pinterest party boards by Memorial Day!
So TODAY I’m sharing my Donut Banner with all of you! (I hope you aren’t hungry because this tutorial will have you drooling!). I opted not to have all the donut things at Bee’s Donut Bar Birthday Party, but instead to go slightly understated on the donuts (slightly, people. We still had a good many donut decorations).
Donut Banner Tutorial
felt (variety of bright colors)
tan textured paper
extra strength glue
fabric scissors (not required but will make your life easier!)
large circle to trace (Greek yogurt container)
small circle to trace (Sprinkles bottle lid)
1- Trace as many large circles as fit on 1 sheet of brown paper.
2- Trace small circle in the center of large circle.
3- Cut out donuts. (I stacked the paper and cut 2 sheets at a time)
4- Trace a donut on a piece of felt and draw the icing in a random pattern.
5- Cut out the icing pattern. You can trace this on your subsequent felt pieces.
6- Glue the felt (icing) on top of brown paper (donut). This is my current favorite glue for crafting.
7- You’re Donut Party Garland is almost done BUT—- what good is an iced donut without sprinkles? Stack your felt and cut a strip approximately 1/4 wide by 2 inches long and snip them into tiny pieces.
8- Dip your felt sprinkles in school glue and add to the Donut Banner!
9- Hole punch donuts on each side and string twine through the holes.
10- Use Command Strips to hang your Donut Banner.
Donut Banner Approximate Cost:
7 felt sheets (split between 2 projects)– $1.00
brown paper- $2.50
twine and glue dug out of craft closet- free
Total Cost- $3.50
The only thing better than 1 Donut Banner is 2 Donut Banners!
I made a couple extra donuts and combined them with pre-cut letter from the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby to make this “DONUT GROW UP” party banner, too.
I laid the letters out as I wanted them on the banner. Then I flipped the upside down and glued twine to them. I used painters tape to hold twine in place while the glue dried.
Are you craving donuts yet? I am! But what’s new? I could eat donuts at every meal. Too bad my metabolism won’t get on board. I have a dearest friend that told me not long after we met she ate a half dozen donuts every morning for breakfast while she was on vacation… I knew then we were meant for each other!
If you had a food-themed party, what would it be?
