Here’s a fun little project that turns out quite pretty in the end. In fact, depending on the ages of your children–you might just turn this one over to them. We used the assembly line approach and made quite a noodle choir in about an hour.
For each angel you will need:
1 wooden bead
1 Rotini noodle
1 Bowtie noodle
2 macaroni noodles
a small pile of Acini de Pepe pasta
First, glue the wooden beads to the top of the Rotini noodle and allow to dry. Then, dip the angel’s head in a hair type shape.
Pat the gluey head into the Acini de Pepe pasta for a curly hair look.
Next, glue the macaroni on like arms and allow to dry a bit. Glue the bowtie wings on the back. You can leave your angels a lovely noodle color…
or you can lay them on newspaper in a well ventilated area and spray paint them gold or silver or white.
Turn them over and spray until all the nooks and crannies are painted thoroughly.
Add a string or cord for a hanging loop on the back above the bow. Now your sweet little angels are ready to grace your presents or to just be hung on the tree directly…
do not pass go…
do not collect $200.
Oh—Pasta and Alfredo sauce may sound really good right about now.

Those are adorable! I love the headband!
What a cute idea! But what really got my attention was the link to the Alfredo Sauce recipe. I’ve been wanting to try to make Alfredo Sauce. I just have one really dumb question. What’s heavy cream?
They are really fun too–and easy enough.
Glad you love it!
This is a fabulous recipe too. Heavy cream would be like Whipping Cream–you know the kind in the small carton that is unsweetened? You can use half and half if you’d like a bit lighter sauce. But it’s fabulous either way.
Oh, and of course your question isn’t dumb!
These just make me smile! I love eating pasta… but NOW there’s just one more reason to love noodles! 😀
Me too. And they are really so fun to make too. :}
