Here is a quick video tutorial. You can find the full one at the end of this post!
Step 1: Gather your pasta.
Step 2: Take the rigatoni noodle and glue it on the bow tie pasta. You want it to be more toward one end and not right in the middle.
Step 3: Glue on the dried lima bean for the head.
Step 4: Add macaroni noodles for arms.
They curl perfectly and look like they are holding their hands together or praying.
Step 5: Add hot glue to the head and roll it around in alphabet pasta.
Look at that cute do!
Step 6: Use a permanent marker to draw on a face.
Step 7: Add sticks to a piece of styrofoam or cardboard to create a drying rack for the pasta angels.
They sit right on the rack, ready to dry!
Step 8: Use different glues, beads and glitters to decorate the angels!
You can use these for all kinds of things. Add a magnet to the back for a refrigerator magnet. Glue them to a napkin ring. As they are, you can add them to the stem of a small Christmas tree. To create a hanging ornament, in step one, when you glue the rigatoni noodle to the bow tie pasta, add a piece of wire or fishing line between the two pasta pieces and you now have a hanger built right in.
That’s it. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Holidays and remember: Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!
