DIY: Donut Wall

I had to chance to help celebrate my best girl this weekend, as her wedding is almost less than a month away! It sure has flown by! T + I are so excited to get our people married on March 16th!

Part of my job for her bridal brunch was to mail out invitations + build a donut wall–you guys know how much I absolutely loved doing both of those things. This post isn’t really about the invitations, but I did design them, so if you want more information on those, let me know! 🙂


The star for this post is this precious donut wall featured below. When I started searching for Tyler’s brunch ideas, I quickly came across donut walls–I mean, what finger food is better at a brunch?! I knew making one would be super easy, so instead of buying one for $50+, I made one for less than $20.


One problem I have with this post, is that I was in such a rush to get it done (#busyweek), that I didn’t pause for progress pics. However, this project is so incredibly easy, that I think you’ll be able to follow along with a detailed explanation. This baby only took about 20 minutes total to complete! *heart eyes*


  1. 48 in. H x 24 in. W White Pegboard
  2. 1/4 X 48 Wood Dowels X 3
  3. Metallic Gold Spray Paint
  4. Hammer
  5. Painter’s Tape
  6. Drop Cloth


  1. Have the Home Depot staff cut your piece of pegboard into two pieces–I recommend having one larger than the other. I went with 28 rows on one and 20 on the other. Doesn’t really matter, this just allowed for me to have two different sizes.
  2. Take your three wooden dowels to one of the Home Depot self-cutting stations. Lay them all together, evenly, and measure out 4in from the end. Use the saw provided to cut there. Move the dowels up, measure 4in again, cut again. Keep doing this until all dowels are cut. Be sure to keep a barcode visible, as you’ll need to scan it at checkout.
  3. Using your painter’s tape and drop cloth, tape off a corner of both boards. Use the drop cloth to lay under the tape, covering the part of the board that you want to remain white.
  4. Spray paint the corners. Leave to dry for 5-10 minutes.
  5. When dry, remove the tape + drop cloth.
  6. Measure out even distances on your board for your pegs–I did every 4 holes, over and down. Using your hammer, hit the dowel pieces into the holes selected.
  7. Continue for second board. You did a great job!




This DIY, like most, is so super easy + is perfect for baby showers, wedding showers, birthday parties, Valentine’s Day parties, + so much more!

You can tackle it, gal! You go!
