Inspire yourself and the kids with a Christmas craft with pasta
Who would have thought that little pasta shells covered in silver paint could turn into a festive decoration? Or that the bow tie shaped pasta could be used to create a mini wreath that will light up the Christmas centerpiece? This year, it is not necessary to buy something new to decorate the tree. You just need to create an ornament yourself. In addition, it is much more sentimental!
How do you turn pasta into exciting Christmas decorations?
Pasta can be found in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, making it a popular material for making different DIY projects. You can choose from penne, stelline, farfalle, fusilli and conchiglie rigate which are most popular for this type of craft project. So, all you need to make a Christmas craft with pasta are hot glue, paints and various beads to add a festive touch to your pendants.
A DIY garland with farfalle pasta
This DIY project is super easy and you can do it even with children. You need:
- bow tie pasta
- white glue
- a brush
First, brush one side of the pasta with glue, giving it a nice thick layer. Then cover them with glitter. Let dry and repeat the operation on the other side. Once your glittery pasta has dried completely, just tie it up with twine. Repeat with as much of the pasta as you want, making a double knot on each of them to secure them. To give your garland a pop of color, you can paint the pasta with food coloring before adding the glitter on top.
A DIY Christmas tree-shaped pendant
To make this pasta decoration for the Christmas tree, get some pasta in any shape, a sheet of cardboard, hot glue, and acrylic paint (you can also use paint in aerosol). Don't let your creativity stop there. You can make a star, a bell, a heart or a snowman. Use metal cookie cutters that you use for your traditional cookies, to trace ideal shapes on the cardboard. Then cut them out with scissors.
Creative ornaments with different types of Italian pasta
With all the types of pasta that exist in the market, you can create many variations of DIY Christmas ornaments. As already noted, you just need to have some hot glue and paints. Your children will love to help you and by using their imaginations, they may even find new shapes and patterns.

Creating a small Christmas tree is actually super easy. You need a cardboard in the shape of a circle which you need to roll up and glue as shown in the photo above. You need to make a cone which will be the base of your tree. Then glue the pasta one by one and paint it, if you want. At the end, decorate with beads, sequins or with DIY fake snow. You can even add it to a DIY Christmas village populated with little fir branch gnomes. It's really magical and inspiring, isn't it ?!
Christmas ball with mini pasta
This Christmas ball is made with Stelline pasta, but you can use other types of pasta according to your preference. So take a styrofoam ball that you can find in hobby stores and then apply white glue to it. If you are using larger and heavier pasta, use hot glue to secure them better. Finally, paint your pendant with spray paint. We must not also forget the string that is used to hang the decoration on the tree. Drill a hole in the middle of the ball and insert the string, previously covered with glue. Use a skewer or a toothpick.
