Working On Macaroni Snowflakes

My Macaroni Snowflakes

Applying Glitter to Macaroni Snowflakes

Over the weekend I worked on making some macaroni snowflakes. Crafty Stephanie from even*cleveland shared the diy last December on my blog. I didn’t use as much white paint on my snowflakes as Stephanie did. I kinda like the natural macaroni color showing through. The second photos shows me applying some glitter.

    what a clever idea. are you going to hang them on your tree or string them as a garland? you know, if they wouldn’t wilt from the moisture, those would make beautiful coasters as well.

    I’m not actually getting a tree this year because my house is under renovations. They might just turn into gifts.

    Where did you find the big wagon wheels? I live in Marblehead and between crosbys and S&S only can find the tiny wheels and flowers.

    Hmm I bought them last year. I can’t remember where. The brand is De Cecco. Maybe shubies? Definitely not crosbys. Box is blue and yellow.

    Don’t forget to use ditalini! They make a great addition. My daughter and tried this project. They turned out fantastic. We found it best to make components, like the center section and outer pieces. Let let it dry, then assemble it and add some extra pieces. Thanks for the inspiration!
