Halloween doesn’t always have to mean spooky or gory. I love donuts and thought why not turn a pumpkin into a yummy looking donut. What makes these great is you can display them all year round on a mantle or end table. These are very simple to make and does not cost a lot either.
I first went to my local Dollar Tree and while searching for crafty items, I came across these Styrofoam pumpkins. At the time I did not know what to do with them, but figured I could come up with something eventually. I decided to just watch some T.V. and try to think of an idea on what to do with these pumpkins. While watching T.V. a donut commercial came on and I thought to myself how I really want a donut right now. Lol, I then had a light bulb moment and signals went off in my brain, paint them like donuts! I took out my acrylic paint and since I did not have a brown color, I mixed green and red to make brown and then added white until it became a tan color to make my strawberry frosted donut. I had to use 2 coats of paint for the donut section and the frosting. Take a thin paintbrush and paint different color sprinkles on top. There are many variations you can try. You could make a vanilla donut with chocolate frosting or chocolate donut with orange frosting for a more Halloween look.
I hope you enjoyed my pumpkin donuts. Sound off below and let me know what kind of crafts you are making for Halloween this year. Stay tuned for my Pumpkin Cake Pops! I will be posting those early next week. I have a great book to share with you on cake pops next week.
