I love any kind of DIY project, especially when it revolves around how to build a donut wall! 

In anticipation of Kenya’s 6th grade graduation (I still can’t believe I have a 12 year old) I wanted to do as many things as possible to make the day as perfect as possible. As a room mom in his class it meant there was plenty of things to do and getting creative to make the party special was top of mind.

DJ? Check! Photo wall? Check! Brick oven pizza, salads and roast chicken? Check!  We even brought in games like fuze ball, basketball, ping pong and more. 

When it came to dessert we had a lot of different thoughts from mini cupcakes to ice cream, and even a big layer cake. The one food we agreed on that all of our kids (and the adults) love most are donuts.

What’s the best way to showcase donuts? On a huge wall for everyone to pull from throughout the evening. If you’ve never thought of building a donut wall it’s so much easier than you would think and a ton of fun!

There are a few things to keep in mind when building a donut wall for a party. It's a safe bet to plan 1 donut per person if your main meal will be on the heavier side. If you want the wall to be extra impressive, if this will be your only dessert option, or if you're feeding a bunch of growing teenagers, then you might want to purchase 2 donuts per person. 

Make sure to get a variety of colors and flavors, but leave out anything with a filling! My favorite donuts are from Kettle Glazed. I went with an even mix of white and chocolate frosted donuts, then added dye-free sprinkles from Supernatural.

To start you need to head to your local hardware store to grab a few supplies. Here’s the list:

* peg board (since I needed to transport the board to the party location I used two smaller ones and placed them together).
* paint (try to use a non-toxic paint)
* sponge (cut the sponge into small squares to create a pattern)
* dowels to fit into the holes in the peg board (I bought long sticks and cut them into 5 inch pieces)
* hot glue gun
* LOTS of donuts

How to Build a Donut Wall:

1. Place the peg boards on a towel or tarp to prevent paint getting on the floor.
2. Dip the sponges in paint colors and create a pattern on the peg boards. You can also paint them solid or create any words or decorations you like. 
3. Place the dowels in the holes to map out where you want them making sure to leave space in between for the donuts. 
4. Use a dollop of hot glue to adhere the dowels into the pre-selected holes. 
5. When the glue is dry you can place the donuts on the individual dowels to create a pattern.

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: [email protected] or call him +2348105150446
