DIY Shopkins Delish Doughnut Costume

I have a sweet spot for doughnuts – so when my daughter told me she wanted to be a Shopkins Delish Doughnut for Halloween, I was thrilled. Plus — we LOVE Shopkins! After not finding anything I liked in stores or online, I decided to make it myself. I found this adorable DIY doughnut on Pinterest. I used Sam’s directions as a guideline and then winged the rest.

 

This is a no sew project! All you need is:

  • 1 yard of tan felt for the doughnut
  • 1 yard of dark pink felt for the icing, eyebrows, nose, lips, and straps
  • 9 x 12 inch sheets of felt in the following colors for sprinkles, lips, eyes, and lips: yellow, pink, light pink, blue, black, white
  • One Hot glue gun and plenty of hot glue sticks
  • Stuffing (I needed two 8 oz bags).

Step 1: Cut your felt. The first thing I did was cut two 24 inch circles out of tan felt (Navy insisted on the doughnut being “humongous” — insert large armswings with a jump). I then cut out a 6 inch circle in the middle of each. For the icing, I cut out a wavy 24 inch circle, with a wavy 6 inch inner circle. For the sprinkles, I cut out skinny, rounded rectangles and hearts on the pink, yellow and blue sheets of felt. I then cut out the pieces for the eyes: two 4 inch black circles, two 3.25 inch white circles, two 2.75 inch blue circles, two 0.5 inch white circles, and six 2 x 0.5 inch rectangles for the eyelashes. Using the same dark pink felt that I used for the frosting, I made two eyebrows, a c-shaped nose, and the outline for lips. I then cut out the top and bottom lip from light pink felt.

Since Delish has hands, I cut out four half ovals out of tan felt.

I also cut out two long pieces of dark pink felt (22 x 2 inches) for straps to go around my daughter so she could have free hands while wearing the doughnut. Note: the length depends on how big or small the person is wearing it.

Step 2: Hot glue pieces together. I started by making the hands. I glued together two of the half ovals, applying a thin line of hot glue on the very edge of the felt and pressing the other on top, and left a small section unglued so I could stuff it. After stuffing both hands, I sealed them up with hot glue and figured out where I wanted to place them on the doughnut and glued them down to the inside of the bottom doughnut circle.

I then glued the icing onto the top doughnut. I then glued down all the pieces for they eyes, eyelashes, eyebrows, nose, and lips on top of the frosting. After playing around with where I wanted the sprinkles to go, I glued them down as well. Once the glue cooled, I glued together the top and bottom doughnut circles, using the same technique as I did with the hands – applying a thin line of hot glue to the very edge of the bottom doughnut circle (leaving a section unglued for stuffing) and pressing the top doughnut down on top of it. After the hot glue cooled, I stuffed the doughnut and sealed it up.

After the hot glue cooled, I glued on the straps. This part took me a while. I originally was going to make a neck strap but after seeing how big the doughnut ended up being, I didn’t want all of that weight on her neck. So, I decided to make straps that crisscrossed across her back. I had my daughter hold the doughnut while I pinned the straps where I wanted them to go and to get the fit just right and then hot-glued them in place later. And that’s it! She can slip on the costume over her head with no problem!

I hadn’t been this crafty since before Navy was born. This was such an easy and fun project! AND — you can easily switch things up and put your own twist on it.

      Thank you, Rachel! Oh goodness — hahaha, we literally can’t go into Walmart or Target without Navy asking for a new Skopkins. She’s addicted and I am no help — neither is Grandma, lol.
