In honor of National Donut Day, I wanted to throwback to our daughter’s 1st birthday!
We honestly decided to do a donut theme, because we fell in love with this “Donut Grow Up” sign that we found on Amazon. (ps: it’s only $10!)
We wanted to create a cute backdrop for photos. So we made this easy DIY Sprinkle Wall!
There were a lot of different bags of balloons and tape involved, but I am happy to show you what worked for us 🙂
Have fun recreating this sprinkle wall!
S T E P • O N E
Pull and stretch out the balloon.
This will help the elasticity of the balloon and allow you to fill it with more air and it will be easier to tie a knot.
Now, measure from the air opening side to 2 – 2.5 inches, then mark it with a sharpie.
Once it is marked, tie a tight knot.
S T E P • T H R E E
Time to cut the other side of the balloon that we don’t need.
(Make sure to cut it on the right of the knot, as shown above)
S T E P • F O U R
Add scotch tape on both sides of the “sprinkle” balloon.
Then fold it over to hide the flaps.
S T E P • F I V E
Turn over to the side where you can visually see more of the scotch tape (this will be the back of your sprinkle) and add gaff tape.
The reason why I use gaff tape is because it was the only tape that did not remove paint off my wall AND the sprinkles stayed put for weeks!
I used gaff tape when I worked in television production, and it’s the best! Every entertainment studio uses it.
