All you need to make this DIY doughnut stand is

  • Small terra-cotta pots with a drainage hole in the bottom
  • A wooden dowel stick (that fits into the hole in your terra-cotta pots)
  • Glue
  • Paint (optional)
  • Varnish
  • Doughnuts doughnuts doughnuts

If you want to paint the terra-cotta pots to suite your theme – go right ahead. Remember when you have finished painting your pots they need to be coated with a layer or two of varnish or modge podge to prevent the donuts from tasting like paint.
