Donut Stand

Thought you’d enjoy this simple donut stand how-to!

All you need is a foot long piece of 2×4 from home depot. Drill 4 holes (the size of a paper straw) and paint it (I used black chalkboard paint). Cover with a piece of butcher or wrapping paper!

You can change the straws with each party to match your color scheme!

I found these spoons at Party City this weekend and was so excited. A perfectly, clean slate, begging for some color! I got out the spray paint and boom…look what happened! (The black is chalkboard paint…stir crazy…cause a stir…stir it up)
