DIY Donut Bulletin Boards

final

If there is one thing I love more than a bulletin board, it’s a donut. Today, I am combining the two: Introducing donut bulletin boards! These are the perfect bedroom or locker accessory for the new school year. This DIY is super easy and affordable. It’s time to create something that you won’t be able to find in any store. I love getting creative, and don’t worry, I didn’t forget the sprinkles!

Step 1: Take your piece of cardboard and cut out a large circle. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect—you can touch it up after!
