Most of you experienced clay charm crafters know how to make a basic donut:
- Roll a ball of clay.
- Press it with your finger to flatten.
- Poke a hole in the center.
- Add some texture from sandpaper.
- Add some pastel for color.
- Top with icing.
- Add some sprinkles.
- Add an eye pin.
- Bake & cool.
- Glaze & allow glaze to dry.
- Add a jump ring. Voila!
But… did you know you can add essential & fragrance oils to the dough & icing to make scented donut charms?
Maybe you did 🙂
And did you know jump beads can be used as gold & silver sprinkles?
Maybe you knew that too 🙂
In that case, you are already a donut-making pro! Feel free to comment on which donut charm colors are your favorite & skip along to the next tutorial.
And if you haven’t made donuts, scented frosting, or sprinkles before, feel free to watch the linked youtube tutorials and try it out. It’s a great starting project.
Frosting can be both messy & tricky at first, but that’s why it’s so fun to learn.
