Pasta crafts and activities are a favorite of ours. My daughter & I love working with the different types of pasta. All of the assorted shapes and sizes offer so many possibilities.

One of our favorite crafts was a fall tree craft using pasta shells. This was a huge hit with my daughter. Moving into the holiday season, I thought that we could do another pasta tree craft, this time with a Christmas theme.

You will need:

Assorted pastas

Acrylic paint

Construction paper

School glue and a glue stick

We like to paint our pasta pieces individually, but you can also put pasta in small baggies with paint and shake them up for a quicker, less messy method. Since we like to make a mess, we laid down newspaper to paint on. We painted each piece in different colors, some with multi-colors, stripes or dots.

We set them aside to dry and then cut a large triangle out of green construction paper for the tree and then a small rectangle out of brown for the trunk.

We used a glue stick to glue our tree to another piece of paper.

It took about half an hour for our pasta to dry.

Once the pasta was dry, we used the school glue to glue our pasta ornaments to our trees.

We were both pretty excited at how these came out. The different shapes and sizes of the pasta made wonderful ornaments for our trees. This would be a great idea for a Christmas card or as a larger scale collaborative project.
