Noodle Angel

You will need:

White thumbtack
3/4" wooden ball
White spray paint
Red, black paint

Bow tie noodles
Macaroni noodles
Ragatoni noodle
Very small Acini di pepe pasta or other small pasta

Hot glue
Silicone glue


The ragatoni noodle is the angel's body. Using hot glue, glue the wooden ball to the body as the head.

Now put the tiny acini di pepe pasta noodles in a small dish. Add silicone glue to the top, sides and back of the head where you want the hair, using a toothpick. Make sure you leave the front side blank for her face. After applying all the glue to the head, roll the head in the tiny noodles by holding the body. If your angels hair looks a little sparse with bald spots, add some more noodles to look like the picture. Firmly press down on the noodles with the toothpick or your fingers.

If the noodle angel will be an ornament, using heavy thread, use a 4" piece of thread. Fold it in half and put the thread ends under the tiny hair new deals with the toothpick. Let everything dry before you continue.

Use two bow tie noodles for the angels' wings. Use 2 of the macaroni noodles for the angel's arms. Use silicone glue and glue the arms and wings on. Then put the thumbtack, as a candlestick, in her hands. Glue the thumbtack in place. Let everything dry before continuing.

Using the white spray paint, paint the entire noodle angel white.

After the paint is dry, use the end of a paint brush or stylis to make a tiny eyes and mouth. Use red paint on the top of the thumbtack.

Using red ribbon, make a tiny bow and glue it underneath the angel's head.
