The pasta angel craft is inexpensive and easy to make, and there are lots of ways to decorate it. You can use them for many things. Use them as ornaments, hang from a light or window, or tuck into the ribbon of a package. You can even use them on a centerpiece.
These were very popular a few years back when I learned how to make them with a friend. You could find them a lot at craft fairs, so we decided to learn to make them ourselves.
Many kinds of pasta can be bought in bulk at the grocery store or health food store, so you only must get as much as you want. Look at all the kinds available, and then figure out how you want to put it together. This sample is just a guideline! (Sorry, I can remember all the actual names of the different kinds of pasta!)
Here’s some supplies you will need
Large pasta tube for body
The head is a large bead
Needle and thread to hang the angel (from the bead head)
Fan shaped pasta for the wings
Macaroni for the arms
Small tube-shaped pastas for the hair
Marker to make the face (someone else had to show me how to make this, but it’s simple to draw!)
Something for the angel to hold – a simple book, flower, even a hobby item.
Scissors, glue gun
White (or other color) spray paint
First, run the thread up through the bead to make the hanger. Put a dab of glue to keep it in place. Glue the bead on to the body. Then glue on the pasta tubes for the hair.
Glue on the arms and put the object the angel will be holding in the arms. Glue the wings on the back of the body. Let all the glue dry very well. You can add additional glue in places that may need it to make it extra strong.
When dry, spray paint the whole thing all one color. Let it dry. Then draw or paint on the face.
Where to get the supplies?
Sit back and relax at your home because you can get all the above-mentioned items delivered at your doorstep with the help of Amazon.com. We have listed down those products which were well liked by the other customers as well as were fine when it comes to the quality aspect as well.
Although you just need a very simple kind of pasta which gives you the right shape, we recommend having this one because you can eat it later and enjoy it. It is specifically a pasta in the tubular shape with the angled ends. You can make a very precise angel out of this because it has the shape just like a traditional pen nib.
In case you have any plans later for cooking it, you should know that it is made from corn and rice as well as certified as a gluten-free product. There are no GMO Ingredients. There are multiple packing options available so that you can choose as per your requirements.
Of course, more details can be added with the help of a macaroni as well. This includes the arms of the angel that you are making. Getting a few pieces of macaroni is not possible which is why we recommend you get a packet like this which you can try out later to enjoy the great taste and aroma
If you are looking for a gun glue that will not break after just a few projects, we suggest you to blindly buy this one. The reasons are just the amazing numbers it has. More than 80% of the customers are satisfied and there is an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars on Amazon.com. It has been Amazon’s choice product for a long time.
It delivers the purpose of gluing up things in the safest way possible through an anti-hot cover as well as a safe power switch which prevents it from overheating and / or causing any damage to the users’ hands. It also comes with 10pcs of 4-inch Glue Sticks. With a small precision nozzle, it becomes easy to control. There is a built-in stand as well for the added convenience of the users.
Of course, having the right angel would need the right kind of design and coloring as well. Get this spray paint for all different kinds of crafts including ferrous, non-ferrous metal, wood, concrete, masonry, and other such surfaces. This is a high-quality spray paint which gives a tough finish as well as rust protection. It will be the perfect one for a long time.
You can give your craft a cool and shiny look with this one because it comes with a semi-gloss finish. The company offers more than 10 different colors for this spray paint so you can choose the one you prefer. In as low as 15 minutes, it dries. The total spray paint can be used to cover 14 square feet of material.
That’s about it! Several steps, but easy to do. Elderly people could make a pasta angel craft if they can handle small pieces. And certainly, with help. If they can’t use a hot glue gun, then you could use another strong type of glue. These are fun to make with a group, with plenty of oohs and aahs, and even some laughs.
This pasta angel craft is very lovely when you are done. But it is also very delicate and could break unless handled carefully. I suggest that they be stored in tissue paper in a box when not in use.
