Pretend Donuts made from Socks in a Hurry5:00 AM
A donut party my daughter says. What? A donut party? I can imagine the confusion on my face, but I reluctantly agree knowing that I was not going to find Donut Party Themed decorations at a local party store.
I found something even better than traditional party decorations. I crafted some Pretend Donuts from socks! That's right, I grabbed some socks from goodwill, washed them (of course), and turned them into cute donut themed decorations that can be reused for pretend play!
Creating Your Sock Donuts
2. Now, cut off the toe and if there is any, the tiny elastic around the top (not the ribbing), do NOT cut off the ribbing or the sock will be too short!
4. Turn the sock until the edge is located where it will be covered with icing!
To make the icing, I sat the donut on top of my felt and cut the felt a little larger than the donut.
Then I just randomly cut waves along the edges and center to look more like icing. No perfect waves either! Icing drips after all.
And now after just a few minutes you have a pretend donut! Or if you spent a little more time, you have several. You do have to let the paint dry before playing, though.
