You can use this as a template but personalise it as you want. We made three different trees using different shapes of pasta and different colors.

Time needed: 60 minutes

You will need:


Step 1: Make a cone

To make a cone, you will need to draw half a circle on the paper and roll it. Your paper will need to be thick enough to hold the weight of the pasta and to resist to the paint.

I used almost the whole height of the paper which led to a tree of 14 cm tall.

I used a stapler to fix the cone, but you can use a double faced tape.

Step 2: Start sticking the pasta

Once your cone is made, start by heating the glue gun if you have one and stick the pasta on the cone. I started by the bottom of the cone.

This is the longest step, so get some music some music on and be patient.

Step 3: Paint the cone

Once every pasta glued to the cone, it’s time to paint. I used the sprays I had available at home, and choose the gold one for this tree.
Carefully follow the instructions on your paint and leave enough time for it to dry.

Step 4: Paint the top pasta

I choose to paint the pasta on the top of the tree in red. It was a different shape of pasta – Corrolles d’Alsace. These can be quite hard to find outside of France, but you can easily replace it by a different shape or use a star or a ribbon.

Step 5: Decorate the tree

For this version, we glued pompoms all around the tree. You can add stickers, pipe-cleaners, etc.

And that’s it!! Well done you can now enjoy your little pasta Christmas tree crafts.

This one was fun to make, but is the most fragile of the three trees.

This one took a lot of times, because of all the pasta involved. However I found it to be the least fragile one.
