Make Your Own Painted Pasta Gingerbread Birdhouse!

Painted-Pasta-Gingerbread-House-Craft-Idea-@clubchicacircle

We love this D.I.Y. craft  idea from our friends at Club ChicaCircle: Painted Pasta Gingerbread Birdhouses! Here are the basic instructions. For the full tutorial, which includes lots of great images, visit the Club ChicaCircle webpage. Thanks, ChicaCircle for this fab D.I.Y. craft:

Start with a plain wood birdhouse. We found one at  Michaels. They come in different styles and you can find them with a rope handle on top of them.

Then paint your house as desired. Paint it all a solid color, or paint each side a different color. There are no rules here.

Paint pasta and let dry. Try loved the Cocoa Bean color on the rigatoni noodles. It looks just like chocolate! And you can try painting the spirals white first, and then added red and green stripes.

With a glue gun, add your pasta on top of the painted house to create your own gingerbread inspired house – one that will last all year long!

Here’s what you will need: 

  • Glass jar and cup

Here’s what you will do:

  1. Put warm water into the jar.
  2. Put oil in the cup and add drops of food coloring.
  3. Mix the oil and food coloring to make smaller drops of food coloring (food coloring will not mix with the oil).

Happy Fourth of July!
