These are simple, fun, fairly quick to put together (bar over night drying time) and look stunning. Best of all you can make them virtually any size you wish.
We chose a dinner plate as our template and cut this from sturdy card and removed the inner circle also.
We used bow tie pasta, macaroni and twists, but you could use any shapes you have in the pantry.
Choose strong, clear drying glue for this part. Have fun getting messy with all of that sticky glue.
We let ours dry overnight just to be certain everything was well and truly stuck down.
B sprayed them with gorgeous gold spray paint. It's so shiny and sparkly, a real christmas colour that's for sure.
Once the paint has dryed, glue on some decorations. We used old ones that were already beginning to fall apart, they were perfect for this.
And enjoy the masterpieces. We actually did these last year. The kids just found them whilst rummaging in one of Christmas tubs so I thought I'd share them as they really do look fabulous.
