DIY Pasta Wreath

DIY Pasta wreath Remember when you were a kid and you would make Christmas ornaments out of dried macaroni? There might have been a school picture in the middle and you probably painted it gold. It is a quintessential grade school craft and almost a rite of passage in my mind. There’s nothing quite like the joy and satisfaction one gets when you see your masterpiece grace the Christmas tree! At least, there was nothing quite like that feeling when I was 8 years old. I suppose I wanted to relive the magic of my youth, so I created this DIY pasta wreath! It’s basically a glorified macaroni ornament but in a fresh white palate, pretty enough to adorn your front door or a wall inside your home. With dried pasta being the primary material, this is a super cheap and simple DIY, and I promise you that kids will be more than happy to help 😉

Instructions:

  1. With a hot glue gun, create star shapes like the ones pictured above. Be liberal with the hot glue or they won’t hold together
  2. Once you have plenty of stars (amount depends on the wreath frame size), begin to layer and arrange them around the frame
  3. Hot glue the stars in place. Add Bow tie pasta and others to the centers of the stars to cover any exposed hot glue
  4. Spray paint the wreath white. It will require multiple coats.
  5. Tie a bow on and hang it up!
