firstly, you get a story! a few years ago my boyfriend and i went to florida to visit his grandfather and his wife. we ended up going to the dunkin donuts often enough that they invited us back after closing to give us a few donuts they would otherwise have to throw out. of course, we happily obliged. and ended up carrying back what turned out to be 25, yes, twenty-five pounds of donuts. no exaggeration. and its kind of been a running joke. so i really wanted to make a bunch of stuffed felt, actual size donuts presented in a donut box as a joke. but with all that work id like for them to be useful also and not get set aside. they're not the kind to need pincushions. they'd be too huge for magnets. too thick for coasters. and i don't see them keeping anything decorative made with them on display really. any ideas?

If you celebrate Christmas, Christmas tree ornaments!
That or cat toys - stuff with catnip - might need cats for that one...

attach them to a frame - a donut picture frame would be pretty awesome.

Such a cute idea, I have many running jokes I try to turn into projects too. Glad I'm not alone.
Maybe you could do mini donuts and put them on a wreath as a decoration to be used all year round and present it in a clean donut box. Or maybe on a clock, 12 donuts is each hour. Not sure full sized ones would work but mini ones would work even out of felt if you got a big enough wood piece. That's all I could think of right now but now I'm lookinga round my house for anything "donut sized"

Is it really compulsory for them to be actual size? I'm sure the joke would work if they weren't. You could probably think of more things if they were bigger (like cushions!) or smaller (magnets). The only thing I can think of that's donut-sized and round are those rings you put around candles... but then they couldn't be felt (too flammable). Or it could be one of those games, you know where you throw the rings and try to get them onto a stick? Like this: http://www.school-tech.com/tossgames1.html.

Or they could be pouches of some sort, like coin purses, but who needs 6 coin purses...? Maybe the game is the most viable idea, if you can fit the stick into/onto the box.

They needn't necessarily be true size, I just wanted to see them panic inside for that split second before realizing they aren't real. But I'm sure they'd be equally scared of miniature donuts too. Small would be great too. I like the magnet idea. Or maybe a cute checker set. chocolate vs. powdered! And the ring toss would probably go over well too. Thanks for the ideas!
