I posted a little video about a month ago on my Instagram feed sharing how to make these adorable fairy donuts - perfect for the tiniest tea party you can imagine. I thought I'd re-post them here to share with you all. If you love cute things, I know you will love this!

All you need to make these adorable miniature donuts are some round cereal pieces (Cheerios work best!), acrylic paint and glitter. That's it!

Using a small paintbrush, carefully decorate each Cheerio with some bright, acrylic paint. For donut frosting pink, blue, peach and lavender work best.

Pinch a little bit of glitter with your fingers and add to the top of each donut for sprinkles while the paint is still wet. That way, no glue is needed!

  2. Super cute!!! Thank you! For something this small, do you have a personal preference for the glitter or other "toppings"? I don't recall super micro-mini glitter at my local craft store, but then again I hadn't really looked. :)

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I actually bought an assorted pack of glitter in tiny clear containers from my local A.C. Moore craft shop for this project, but any glitter will do nicely. Even the brightly colored kind from the dollar store works great!
