Pasta Jewelry

Pasta Jewelry

I thought this would be a fun craft to do during the week with my daughter since we could color the pasta ahead of time and have it dried and ready for us.  This craft is great because it is another one that the kids can do themselves (well after the coloring of the pasta that is).  My daughter helped to shake up the baggies of pasta while we were coloring them, but when it came time to do the pasta jewelry she was able to do it herself.  And I don’t know about your kids but mine gets so proud when she does something all by herself (such a big girl).

This is also a super cheap craft.  I had everything I needed in the house already so for us and many of you I am sure this will be a free craft that the kids will love.

Check out our KID CRAFTS board on Pintrest for more fun ideas!


Rubbing Alcohol
Food Coloring
Snack baggies


 Put pasta in snack baggies.  Add 1tbs rubbing alcohol and 2 to 3 drops food coloring
  Make sure baggies are closed tight and shake them up.
 Let the pasta sit in baggies for about 5 to 10 min to get a good color.
 Put pasta on baking sheet with paper towel to let dry (be careful where you put them the food color can stain)
Colored pasta
Fishing Line (or any other sturdy string)
Cut fishing line the size of your desired jewelry (note: make sure it is big enough to fit over head)
Put a piece of tape on one end of fishing line (this is to keep pasta from falling off)
String pasta on to fishing line in desired pattern
Once you have all your pasta on take tape off and tie both ends in a knot.
 Here is my very proud girl with her new pasta necklace.  And we have enough pasta left to make a few more, or maybe a bracelet or two to match.

    My son isn’t quite old enough for this yet, but I love this idea and I’m going to log it away! So simple, easy and I’m sure your daughter had a blast making them with you.

    So glad you both like this craft, it is super simple and fun. We have some left over pasta so we will be making more jewelry later or maybe we need to come up with something else to do with it.
