Donut Towel – A Fun Upgrade for the Beach

DIY Donut Towel for the Beach | We're Going to Make itI’m all about this DIY donut towel. As you know, I’m a little donut crazy, but as you might not know, I’m a bit of a health nut too. You’re probably going to hate me for saying this but, I like to eat vegetables.DIY Donut Towel for the Beach | We're Going to Make itDIY Donut Towel for the Beach | We're Going to Make itThat isn’t to say I don’t indulge in a donut or two every once in a while (let’s be honest, it would probably be weekly if I lived by Voodoo Doughnuts). I’ve found that it is all about balance. Fill your body with good for you foods and then enjoy that treat. Or, better yet, find a healthy version of the “junk” food. Like this delicious looking Vegan Chocolate Donut¬†I found on Positive Health Wellness. I love scrolling through body wellness websites, such as Positive Health Wellness as they are well informed and are chock full of recipe ideas, workout tips, nutrition information and so much more. If you’re into wellness or healthy donuts then you should go check them out! Now, onto my version of a healthy donut ūüėČDIY Donut Towel for the Beach | We're Going to Make it

Materials:

  • Two plain brown towels
  • Two plain pink towels
  • Two smaller hand towels in various colors
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Scissors

How to make this donut towel:

  1. Start by laying out the two brown towels side by side. Sew them together down the middle by using a simple running stitch.
  2. Cut the brown towels into a circle, making sure to avoid the area that you  just stitched.DIY Donut Towel | We're Going to Make it
  3. For the pink towels, I laid them out on top of the brown to see how much of one towel would fit for the frosting. Overlap the second towel with the first to fill in the rest of the donut. Then I took my scissors and cut the 3 of the sides into a wave pattern. Do this with both towels, making sure to trim any excess off the second towel.DIY Donut Towel | We're Going to Make itDIY Donut Towel | We're Going to Make it
  4. Sew the two pink towels together at the seam.
  5. Taking your smaller hand towels, cut out little rectangles to serve as sprinkles. I think I did about 8 in each color.DIY Donut Towel | We're Going to Make it
  6. Sew each of the sprinkles onto the pink towel. I just put one stitch in to speed up the process but you might want to do a couple to make sure it is secure.
  7. Once all your sprinkles are sewn on, sew the pink frosting onto the brown donut.
  8. Take the beach and lay out in the sun!

I like plants.Copper Mid-Century Modern Planters DIY | Popcorn and ChocolateAlso not going to lie, these mid-century planters were a b to photograph. Do you ever have that problem, where everything you seem to do just makes the picture look weirder?

Spoiler alert, I did.Copper Mid-Century Modern Planters DIY | Popcorn and Chocolate

Don’t worry if you can’t use a drill as I have included instructions on how to make it without one. I got your back! I know what it’s like to look at a craft and then quickly realize you don’t have the means to create it. What a bummer! Not here though, we like to make things enjoyable for the whole family.
