Macaroni Fir Trees
Christmas tree of pasta - a simple and very beautiful hack. Today we will tell you how to do it and how to paint the New Year's beauty. We also collected for you a few ideas for inspiration, so that you could navigate to something if you make your own Christmas tree for the first time.
Working with pasta is quite simple. They are well "grasped" with glue and are amenable to painting. But the variety of their forms gives plenty of imagination.
To create Christmas trees it is best to use "feathers", "bows", "shells". Working with "springs", "scallops" and "horns" is a little more difficult, but it will do. In short, you should not take only spaghetti and noodles - feel free to use the other options.
What do we need?
- plastic wine glass or thick cardboard
- Super glue
- acrylic paints or spray paint in a balloon
- pasta - 1-2 packs
This craft is glued on the same principle as the tree of cones. Master class can be viewed here.
If you have a plastic wine glass (the easiest and most budgetary, such as a picnic option), unscrew its leg. The cone will be the basis for the Christmas tree, and the foot and the bottom will turn into a stand.To do this, stick a simple pencil in the bottom.
If you do not have a wine glass, simply fold the cardboard with a cone and seal the side face. Herringbone can be set right. If you want to make a stand, take as a basis the reel for adhesive tape, a leg from an old mirror or something like that.
Pasta must be glued from bottom to top. Glue the bottom layer over the entire diameter. Use a glue gun or superglue: PVA and paste paste pasta not too well.
Tip: If you have no glue at hand, replace it with clay. The craft will not be very durable, but it will “work out” the New Year holidays.
Moving from the base to the top, glue over the entire future Christmas tree. The top can be decorated with a separate macaroni (especially "bow" looks beautiful).
Now we start painting our Christmas tree. Never use liquid paints or too much water, otherwise the pasta will be sodden. Paint from a barrel will become ideal.
If you use acrylic paints or gouache, work on the inside of the pasta with a brush.
The finished Christmas tree can be decorated with pasta of another shape (for example, "bows"), beads or whole beads, small balls, etc.
And now take a look at a few examples for inspiration.

Take any pasta that is in your kitchen. Even if you do not have paints, the Christmas tree will still get unusual and cute.
