DIY donut rug

Step 1: Trace a circle onto the middle of the rug. I used a dinner plate.
Step 2: Cut it with a kraft knife. You’ll have to go over your lines a few times to get into the rubber, but it’s pretty easy.
Step 3: With your large kraft paper, you’ll create a stencil for the frosting of the donut by placing it down on the donut and measuring the undulating line within the perimeter of the donut. Stay within 2-3″ of the outside.
Step 4: With your craft knife, cut that frosting line.
Step 5: Hold down the stencil with paper weights. I used coins to get into the nooks and crannies.

Step 6: Spray the rug. I’d give it a few layers to make sure the paint really gets in there. Maybe 2-3. Let it dry.
Step 7: Create a stencil for the sprinkle with blue tape. It’s basically just a rectangle with room in the middle to spray.
Step 8: I found that the colors came out brighter with acrylic paint so I ended up using a paint brush for my sprinkles and the colors now pop!
Step 9″ Remove the stencils and you should have a beautiful donut rug.
Donzo!
Next up: donut collar! Yeah, no.
