Did you know that the first Friday in June is National Donut Day? It was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. Very cool! I thought it would be fun to celebrate this sweet tradition with a donut craft and create this whimsical DIY Donut Bracelet!
Get started with a plan wooden bracelet at least 1″ thick.
Paint the exterior of the bracelet with a two coats of tan craft paint. The paint doesn’t take long to dry, so the process goes pretty fast.
Once the tan paint is dry, do two layer of pink paint creating a wavy edge with the brush.
Once both colors of paint are completely dry, paint on a clear gloss craft varnish. You can see the brand I used for all the paints below. I also discovered that wedging a screwdriver in an old measuring cup let my bracelet dangle and dry on all sides at once!!
Adding the bugle bead sprinkles didn’t take too long.
First, I mixed a little epoxy glue together on a paper plate. You need very little glue so just mix a small amount. Take a toothpick and insert it into the end of the bead. Gently coat one side of the bead and place it on the bracelet. Give it a firm press to make sure it is evenly attaching to the bracelet. Use a few extra toothpicks to wipe away any excess glue.
Once all the glue is dry, paint another coat of varnish over the bracelet including the beads. Let dry.
Now you’re stylin’! Have fun with it and celebrate!
Linking to these wonderful parties!
