D’oh! 22 Donut-Inspired DIYs to Fuel Your Donut Addiction
Step aside, macarons and Cronuts. Donuts are here to stay. It appears as though a donut frenzy has swept across the nation as everyone and their sister are going for seconds of these sugary sweet confections. Not that we can blame them, though. For the donut obsessed (um, everyone, right?), we’ve rounded up 22 unbelievable donut-inspired DIYs that even Homer Simpson would approve of.
5. DIY Donut Floppy Hat: Blame it on our one-track donut mind, but when we see a straw floppy hat, we immediately think d-o-n-u-t. If it’s bubblegum pink and topped with sprinkles, we want it. (via Studio DIY)
7. DIY Donut Sunglasses: Our new mantra: If it doesn’t move, donut-ify it. These sassy round donut-shaped frames (complete with sprinkles — duh!) are reserved for the most serious donut connoisseurs. (via Studio DIY)
16. Candy Mini Donuts DIY: Oh-em-gee, these candy mini donuts take the cake for being the cutest of them all! No one will believe that they’re made of chocolate and peanut butter chips… could’ve fooled us. (via Paper & Stitch)
18. DIY Polymer Clay Donut Necklace: They DO exist… donut necklaces, that is. (Be honest, you’ve always secretly yearned for one.) Covered with multi-colored sprinkles and pink icing, you’ll never want to leave home without it! (via Lines Across)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
