Celebrate Labor Day with a Donut Wall
Happy Labor Day weekend! I’m super duper excited about today’s post — DIY donut walls! YUM. Calories don’t count on holiday weekends [duh].
Team Lauren’s Lyst had way too much fun creating this project for you. Donut walls seem to be trending at all kinds of fancy events, so we wanted to recreate them in an easy + fun way.
Here’s how to build your own delicious masterpiece. You can make a stationary donut wall, or a hanging one. Note: the stationary one is easier for guests to pull from if you’re throwing a party.
MATERIALS | Pick up string, scissors + a canvas for the hanging wall. You’ll need a foam board, ruler + wood sticks for the stationary wall. Of course, you’ll also need DONUTS!
TIE STRING | Begin by cutting several pieces of string, that measure roughly 1.5 times the board’s length. Tie one end to the back of the board’s wood base, as pictured above. Bring the strings from the back of the canvas to the front.
ATTACH DONUTS | Individually attach each donut by making a loose knot/bow through the center. You can make the hanging donuts longer and/or shorter by tying more or less of the string in a knot. Alternate between varying lengths, and cut excess string.
MARK YOUR SPOTS | Begin by measuring points on your board of equal distance. Mark them with a pencil [we did 4-inch wide markings]. Press a wooden stick firmly through the board.
PLACE DONUTS | Place a donut on each stick, ensuring they’re on securely. You may have to adjust the length of the stick, depending on the size of each donut.
