Earbud Hoodie & DIY Donut Baking Tray February 19, 2013

Posted by Sindy in Cooking, Fashion, My Original Ideas.

Yesterday I went shopping to catch some of the President’s Day sales (I know, I must be out of my mind) and on the way home I stopped at a local dollar store to pick up some snacks. Well two DIY lightening bolts hit my brain:

  1. The cashier was wearing a hoodie with earbuds built into the drawstrings. Brilliant! It shouldn’t be that hard to mimic it. Of course I don’t know how to make the wide shoe-lace-like strings so I can encapsulate the wires inside, but I’m sure I can work around that.
  2. During my shopping I had stopped at two thrift stores. In one I found one of those donut baking trays, but the second one usually has them cheaper so I waited. Of course, they didn’t have any. Oh well. Then I stopped by the dollar store and spotted the aluminum muffin tins – Brainstorm! Just put a marble under each muffin cup, gently press down (you might need to do some shaping with your fingers), and voila! An instant, super cheap donut baking tray! (That’s 50 cents vs. $5 vs. what? $15 retail?) Of course I haven’t tried it yet (I’m guessing the donuts might be difficult to get out of the tray), so I’ll have to let you know if it works. Hmm, I wonder where to find a recipe?

Let me know if you try either of these ideas! 😀
