The Perfect Father’s Day DIY for Donut Lovers

The Perfect Father’s Day DIY for Donut Lovers

Dunkin' also offers last-minute gift ideas that will arrive on time

Looking for a fun way to delight Dad this Father’s Day? Surprise him with these donuts with a sweet twist!

Tell Dad he is #1 or wish him a Happy Father’s Day using his favorite donuts. Start with Dad’s favorite donut – I went for Boston Kreme, but the new Vanilla Cake Batter or classics like Jelly work great too. Then all you have to do is craft some DIY stencil letters, add powdered sugar and you are sure to make Dad’s day!

Check out my instructions for easy Father’s Day DIY donuts below! 




  • 4 Boston Kreme donuts (Or his favorite donuts!)
  • Parchment paper
  • Small knife or scissors
  • Pencil or nontoxic marker
  • Pan spray
  • Paper towel
  • Powdered sugar



1. On the parchment paper, write #1 DAD in bubble letters. You could also write Dad’s name, Happy Father’s Day or another special message!

2. Cut out the letters and flip each one over. 

3. Spray the back side of the parchment paper with nonstick pan spray, then dab with a paper towel to remove the excess spray.

4. Place the first letter on a donut with the sticky side down and press lightly.

5. Dust the top of the donut with powdered sugar and then peel off the letter.

6. Repeat steps 3-5 for each letter until your message is complete.

7. Share with Dad with his morning Dunkin’ Donuts coffee!
