Here’s a quick and easy gift idea that’s perfect for National Donut Day (June 5.) Make and give them to all of your friends! (Along with real donuts, of course.) For the decoration we did our easy finger twist polka garland but this time we used duplex crepe paper where there is a different color on each side. This is the best and easiest because it makes the garland multicolor. All the supplies (the balloon sticks, donut balloons, mini confetti and duplex crepe paper can be found in the shop.) See the link below!
Step 1: Pour confetti into donut balloon and blow it up.
Step 2: Cut off a 1″ fold of crepe paper. Grab the end section. Hold the paper still with one hand while twisting the paper two times with the other. The paper will fold around your fingers. Give a quick pinch to the fold to flatten and shape each little section. (Detailed instructions for dot garlands here.)
Step 3: Attach the dot garland to the top of the cup on the balloon stick.
Step 4: Attach the balloon to the cup on the balloon stick. Tie a ribbon around the base of the cup.
Step 5: Make sure the stick is firmly attached to the cup. Enjoy!!
