I think that we are all, more or less, in a Christmas mood already. If you love pasta and Christmas, why not combining both and make some christmas ornaments? Just use your imagination and ask help from your little ones...
You are going to need
2. pipe cleaners
3. Several types of macaroni
4. acrylic color (optional, if you want to color the pasta).
Use pipe cleaners because it 's easy to form a shape with them,
just pass them through the macaroni, add ribbons or any other material that you have spare in the house like beads, straws, buttons etc.
