Do-nut Hesitate To Try These Fun Donut Crafts

Fall weather can mean more indoor time. Crafting can be a great activity way to get away from spending too much time behind a screen and spend together as a family. These donut crafts can help beat the boredom and all of the craft options below can be utilized on more than one occasion. They can also be used for homemade Christmas and Birthday gifts. Most are relatively easy to make but would require a trip to your local craft store as most materials are not what I would expect all families to have on hand.
