Pasta Shapes Angels

{who said that pasta was only for eating}

I know I promised a sewing post,  but I am still trying my hands at various non sewing crafts, and I am sure you’ll forgive my non-sewing-ness when you see these absolutely cute little pasta shapes angels. The idea is not new, and it is definitely not mine, I only added the glitter hair and the halo. Here is the tutorial if you want to make your own.

To make the glitter hair, lightly brush glue over the “head” where you’d like to have hair and than sprinkle some glitter. Tap gently to remove the excess glitter. As the head is made out of a wooden ball there is a little hole on the top. I used a white pipe cleaner, which I pre-folded and than inserted in the hole after I was finished with the hair to create the halo.

Lovely Little Big Daughter and her Lovely Creative Friend had fun painting some angels the day before and although they were not allowed to use the hot glue gun (did I ever say that everyone should have a glue gun? OK, I did!), they though it was great fun.

We gave the little group of Christmas Carols Singing Angels toLovely Little Big Daughters kindergarten and as they recently learned about Italy, it was interesting to see that pasta is not only for eating…

How are your Christmas preparations going?

Hope you are all having a good week!
