Pasta Crafts


Framed Pasta Art
Place framed pasta art on the refrigerator rather than in it.
N/A

This framed pasta craft project gives your child's artwork an appetizing finishing touch. She'll enjoy pretending that she's a professional artist in a real gallery with this art craft.

What You'll Need:

  • Precut colored mat (available at art supply stores; find the size to fit the artwork)
  • Magnetic strips
  • Craft glue
  • Assorted shapes of dry pasta
  • Assorted colors of glitter and sequins

Step 1: Have your child decorate the mat with assorted shapes of pasta, and glitter and sequins. Glue them on the frame in a random design; let the glue dry.

Step 2: Cut 4 pieces of magnetic strips and glue them to the back of the mat. Use this decorated mat to display your child's drawings on the refrigerator. Change the picture as often as you like.

Popcorn isn't the only food you can use to decorate a Christmas tree. Learn how to make a pasta lace ornament in the next section.
