Doughnut Wall Tutorial What You Will Need

  • Mirror. (This one is from my own house and you can find similar at Farthing. I contemplated using a really large mirror which stands in my living room which could look very effective especially if you have lots of mouths to feed.

  • Self-adhesive hooks. It's worth bearing in mind once a guest takes a doughnut then the hook will be visible. We used these chrome ones from B&M.
  • A selection of doughnuts
  • Optional florals and signage​​​​​​


Doughnut Wall Tutorial Instructions

  • I'm sure you've all worked out from the products above that the next step is very simple. All you need to do is stick the hook on to the mirror by peeling off the film on the back. It's worth bearing in mind the size of your doughnuts and positioning the hooks to ensure there's space between each of your sweet treats.
