Build Your Own Donut Wall

Wow your guests with a sweet surprise! A donut wall is a great way to add a little fun to your graduation party, and you can make one in just three steps.

  • 4’x4’ pegboard
  • Paint in your desired color
  • Paint roller
  • Wooden dowel
  • Hand saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Your favorite Cub donuts!

  • Lay the pegboard down on a protected surface. Paint and let dry. Repeat with multiple coats until the color is even.
  • Gather the wooden dowels—depending on the size of the holes in your pegboard, they should either be 1/8 or 1/4 inch in diameter. Using a hand saw, cut the dowels into 3.5” long pieces. Sand the ends of the dowels so they’re nice and smooth.
  • Insert the dowel pieces into the pegboards. On each dowel, hang a donut!
