This is a good craft for the kiddies. They will need a little help with the hot glue gun, or you could substitute thick Tacky Glue. They can make it to hang on the tree or as a lapel pin.


*Rigatoni is a pasta found where you buy spaghetti.


  1. Paint rigatoni with brown acrylic paint.
  2. Let dry thoroughly.
  3. Cut the brown chenille stem into 3-4 inch pieces.
  4. Bend one into a V and each of the others into an oval shape.

  6. Glue them to the rigatoni using Fig. 2 above as a guide.
  7. Cut the red ribbon in half and glue one piece in place for a hanger, and tie the other piece in a bow and glue top front of pasta.
  8. Glue on 2 tiny wiggly eyes and the red bead for the nose.
  9. Or you could leave the hanger ribbon off and glue a pin back to the backside and wear it on your lapel.
