Everything is cuter on a stick…am I right?? 😉 Last week Andy was having a little party at school. Being the stellar mother that I am, I forgot. 😉 I came home and had 20 minutes to whip up a treat for 12 before I ran back to the school. YIKES!! I quickly took stock of what I had on hand. Fortunately, I had picked up a couple of boxes of donut holes at walmart the day before to use for a shoot…so I grabbed some sucker sticks (I ALWAYS keep some of these in my stash) and a little ribbon and made these…
The knot in the ribbon stopped the donut holes from slipping further down the stick. I didn’t even have time to tie the ribbon into bows, so left it at knots…and to tell you the truth…I liked it just with the knot. It looked a little more “boy” if that makes sense! 😉
I no joke created 25 of these bad boys in under 15 minutes. That included finding all the supplies, cutting and tying the ribbon, and adding the donuts. (and taking the pictures! 😉 Everything! It was great to hear the kids’ reactions as I walked these through the halls of the school headed toward the classroom. They just looked really fun!
These would be a great addition to any party table. How about a brunch or baby shower, or a special valentine breakfast for your kiddos? Add a little note that says “I love you a hole lot” and you’re set! 😉
I firmly believe that things don’t have to be expensive OR complicated to be show stopping and fun. Most of things I do are simple and inexpensive. They just take a little bit of time. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, you can create something amazing!
Have a great day!
