- Elbow macaroni
- Bowtie pasta
- Ziti noodles (this looks like a giant macaroni with groves on the outside with an arch in it)
- Gold pipe cleaners
- White and gold paint
- Medium sized clear faceted balls or round wooden balls with a face
- Glue gun and sticks
- Glitter (optional)
Step one: Paint the elbows and ziti white. We use Apple Barrel brand paint, easy clean up. Paint bowties gold or glittery silver. We paint them gold.
Step two: Cut each gold pipe cleaner into four equal parts. make loop and twist ends together, this should look like a halo. stick twisted ends into the hole at the top of the ball, this should look like the halo over a head.
Step three: Take a length of ribbon and make a loop big enough to fit over the tree branch or the place where it will hang. Glue it to the bowtie, then glue the wings on the ziti in the small arch. Glue two elbows to sides but letting them touch in the front of angel.
Step four: Put glue on upper mouth of ziti (the one closest to the wings) and attach the head. Let dry and, ta-dah, you have a pasta angel.
