Guest Blogger: L's Craft - Squishy Donuts

Today I welcome a very special guest blogger to Thoughts from the edge, my daughter L. She came to me with a shopping list and some ideas and asked if I would take her to the craft store. After seeing her beautiful creations, I suggested she blog about the process. She agreed and wrote this post, with only minor spelling and editing assistance.

My Craft

I made squishy doughnuts and I wanted to tell other people how to make them!





What you need: you will need scissors, acrylic paint, round sponges, and carpenters glue. You can get these at Michaels.





Here are the steps you need to take to making your doughnut:



1: If you are not making a jelly filled doughnut take your scissors and hollow the middle but don't cut all the way.



2: Using your acrylic paints pick a color and paint your doughnut, pick a new color to make a design for example, I did a zigzag. 

 

3: If sprinkles are needed use beads and carpenters glue to glue on the beads. You might have to reglue them but that's ok.

4: Let them dry overnight. 

 




That is how you make your doughnuts.

We've long been inspired by urban art and have finally created a collection that pays homage to this secret addiction of ours!
