Similar to the one above, just more glittery and grand! Use spiral pasta and paint it gold. Stick shiny red beads for contrast.

Tips:    

  • Use white glue, it dries clear. 
  • Once the entire pattern is stuck, rewash it with a little bit of watered down glue to help reinforce.
  • Color it after its glued well and dry, use bright gold or bright popping ones!
  •  For a difficult surface, spray paint would work better, specially with tricky twisted pasta (tree above!)
  •  Be sure to get your twine or ribbon in! You can hot glue it too.
