Not sure if this happens to everyone, but when I look at pasta shapes in the grocery store aisle, all I can think of is what I can make with them. Not make as in cook (I mean who do you think I am?), but make as in craft! And when I look at farfalle, it’s obvious…they are butterflies begging for some antennae!
We decked out my daughter Sommer from head to toe in swarms of butterflies, but this costume will fly (pun intended) even if you use the store-bought wand that comes with the wings, or if you decide not to add to the shoes.
Scroll down for the DIY!
What you’ll need:
Fairy outfit suggestions
How to dye the pasta:
How to make the butterflies:
Headband: Twist butterfly stems around headband and secure with a dot of hot-glue.
Wand: Paint dowel blue and let it dry. Attach butterfly stems to dowel by wrapping with matching tape. Repeat all around dowel top to create a butterfly swarm.
Shoes: Thread butterfly stems through lace holes and twist to secure.
Wings: Arrange pasta around edges of wings to create pattern and secure with hot glue.
Belt: Hot-glue pasta pieces to a piece of ribbon that can tie comfortably around child’s waist.
Dress: Arrange elbow pasta around collar to give a scalloped look and hot-glue to secure.
