Ok so we are a couple of days late to the party, but let’s be honest if you are a true donut fan, then ery’day be donut day! So without further ado, here are our top 30 donut DIY’s to get you in spirit.

1. Donut Pillow: We like any excuse to turn normal household items into donuts and this is no exception! How tasty does this pillow look! It would take all my willpower to not munch on it, although it wouldn’t taste anywhere near as good as the real thing!
