Crafts with pasta for Christmas
Snow crystals and stars tinker with pasta
Different decorative elements for decorating the Christmas tree can be made with noodles. Poinsettias and snowflakes look great. These are very easy to make and you only need a few additional materials that can be found in any well-stocked craft shop.
For most DIY projects that you see below, all you need is a hot glue gun, acrylic paint or varnish, glitter, paper, and beautiful ribbons or cords. There is also a bit of attention to detail and a dash of crafting imagination. For the simplest stars and snow crystals, about 10 noodles per piece or even less are enough.
Penne rigate noodles are best suited for this star variant
In addition to the popular Penne pasta, other types of pasta are also highly recommended when crafting Christmas decorations. For example, the Farfalle looks very effective with its butterfly-like shape. The somewhat thicker cannelloni are very suitable for Christmas figures like angels and the round rotelles are easy to use for any Christmas decoration. Also pasta in the form of Shellfish or the very small star soup noodles serve excellently as inexpensive and very original handicraft material.

And how about little angels made from pasta? Nothing is easier than that. You need cannelloni for the angel's body, farfalle for the wings, rotelles are suitable as collars and with the small soup noodles you can make hair or jewelry for the angels. Small or medium sized wooden balls are the perfect idea for the head. Simply bring the parts together using the hot glue gun and spray or paint with a shiny gold lacquer. Stick a chic ribbon or golden string on it and hang it on the Christmas tree.
