Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had an excellent weekend! I’m back from another bachelorette weekend and ready to get started on this week. My baby sister is getting married this week and we are so excited for her! To celebrate, I’m sharing this fun DIY project that I did for her bachelorette party a couple of weekends ago.
These DIY Diamond Ring Donuts were Pinterest inspired and were a HUGE hit!
If there is one thing my baby sister likes, it’s glitz, glam, and glitter, so when I saw these donuts, I knew I had to make them for her.
DIY Diamond Ring Donuts
Not only are these diamond ring donuts super easy to make, they really add some sparkle to the event. I used them for a bachelorette party, but you can easily use them for any wedding shower or engagement celebration.
- Powdered Donuts
- White card stock paper
- Pencil (I used a yellow colored pencil, but you could use any pencil you wanted)
- Elmer’s Glue
- Gold (or silver) glitter
- Hot glue gun
- Start by creating a stencil on your cardstock. You’ll want to draw out the shape of the diamond and cut it out. Don’t worry if there are stray marks on this piece as you’ll use it to make the others.
- Using your stencil, trace the diamonds on the cardstock paper. I chose to make 16 diamonds, but you could do more or less depending on how many donuts you planned to use.
- Once you’ve traced all your shapes, draw the inside lines. This will help you know where to put the glue for glitter.
- I found it was easier to draw the horizontal line first, then the “W” shape on the top. The last lines I drew were the two on the bottom. I made sure to connect the top points of the “V” shape to the bottom points of the “W”. See the picture below for exactly what lines you should draw.
- Use your glue (not the glue gun) to trace over the interior lines and top with glitter. (You could also use a glitter glue pen to avoid the mess, but I REALLY loved the dimension with the pieces of glitter so I opted to use glue and glitter separately.)
- I did this one at a time and used a separate piece of paper to place the diamonds on and collect the glitter.
- Once you’ve put glitter on all the diamonds, wait at least 15 minutes to let the glue set before gently tapping the diamonds on the paper to remove the excess glitter.
- Take a minute to admire your pretty little diamonds.
- Once the glue had completely dried (I would give it at least 30 minutes just to be sure), use the hot glue gun to attach toothpicks to the back of each diamond.
- I glued them pretty close to the top of each diamond so that I could put them into the donuts without the toothpick sticking out of the donut visibly. This also added some stability to the cardstock paper.
- Once the glue has completely dried, gently tap off any excess glitter.
- Gently insert diamonds into powdered donuts.
That’s it. I made these in an afternoon while Little slept. They were a great addition to the bachelorette weekend and a really fun way to celebrate my sister.
