We turned a CD into an adorable doughnut craft with homemade puffy paint frosting. We love Recycled Crafts, so when the Kids Craft Stars challenge this month was to craft with CD’s I was thrilled. We have never crafted with a CD before and painting on new materials is always fun!


You can follow the Kids Craft Stars on Pinterest and Instagram to make sure you catch all the cute crafts our team comes up with! 

Pin me please! 🙂

Supplies:
CD
Acrylic paint (Brown, and other colors)
Paint brush
Glitter
White glue
Shaving cream

If  you wanted, you could skip the puffy paint and just use acrylic paint.

Directions:
1.  Paint the CD brown and set it aside to dry. We didn’t have brown paint so I used red, green, and yellow to make a doughnut color. Our CD’s had designs on the front of them so we painted the shiny side.

2.
When ready to paint the doughnut, mix 1 part glue to 1 part shaving cream to make the puffy paint. Divide the puffy paint and mix in acrylic paint to add color for the frosting. Paint it onto the doughnut, making sure to leave some of the edge brown (so you can tell it is a doughnut), and try to really glop it on if you want it to dry puffy. My daughter spread the puffy paint around like regular paint so it didn’t dry puffy…(still turned out super cute though :).

3.  Sprinkle glitter on top and use the paint brush to paint sprinkles on.

The kids love feeding their doughnuts to all their toys or pretending to take a bite for themselves 🙂
