Have you seen the thing where people hang donuts on a pegboard? Like, a wall display of donuts.
I think you need to try it. Okay, this may not have been one of your life goals – but it should totally be one of your party goals!
I’ve been doing a lot of brainstorming for holiday party ideas, as one does this time of year.
I thought putting a bunch of donuts on display would be super fun! Pegboard is a great way to do a donut wall since you pretty much just have to decorate it and hang dowels on it.
I went to my local hardware store to buy dowels, pegboard and paint! I chose five different colors of paint to use for this, and they mixed it up for me.
It’s me, so obviously there had to be stripes involved! I could not wait to get home and get painting.
I made a video so you can see the process of putting together the pegboard:
Donut Pegboard Tutorial
Paintbrush, Roller and Tray
- Prepare your pegboard. This may mean cutting it to preferred size. I had my husband cut mine with an electric saw. Tape stripes onto pegboard where you want your stripes to end.
- This is best done stripe at a time if you don’t want any spaces between paint layers. Paint, let it dry, then remove the tape and tape a new stripe area off. (I liked using the paint roller better for this project, but a brush will work too.)
- Saw your dowels do desired length. I made mine 4.5″. You can use a hand saw or a miter saw to do this!
- Sand dowels so that there are no slivers poking out of them!
- Hang donuts on dowels.
Choose an eggshell or satin paint for this project. First of all – it’s really easy to clean! This is obviously important for a donut covered pegboard.
If you are hosting a holiday party I highly recommend doing this! Your guests will love it! As a bonus, you can use the pegboard for other kinds of parties all through the year.
