How to make a painted pasta flower craft

STEP ONE: Gather up your supplies

Before you begin, gather up all your supplies that you'll need. This makes things so much easier when there's paint involved! That way, you can just focus on your craft instead of running around for supplies.

STEP TWO: Cut and paint pasta

Start by painting 27 mini bowtie pasta purple and 9 of them green as shown below. These will be for the blue flower petals and green leaves on the stem.

STEP THREE: Assemble your flower picture

After everything is painted, it's time to assemble your picture. Start with the lavender by gluing the purple mini bowties together on the top portion of the paper. Glue one vertically and align 8-12 below it, with 4-6 on each side. Repeat this 2 more times on different spots of the paper, as shown below.

Next, glue 4 of the red bowties in a circular shape as shown below. Repeat with yellow.

Then, glue the green fettuccini below each of the pasta flowers to resemble stems, as shown below. Trim the pasta at the bottom with scissors so that it fits the paper.

We're almost done! Continue by gluing the remaining red and yellow bowties lower on the paper. Glue a green fettuccini noodle under each one and trim it to fit.

Lastly, glue down the green mini bowtie pastas along the green fettuccini noodles to resemble leaves.
