Spaghetti Christmas Wreath

to make this wreath you will need:
green food coloring
spaghetti (we used angel hair pasta, cause that's all I had)
small styrofoam bowl (or something you won't mind being ruined)
craft stick (to stir with)
break the spaghetti up into small pieces (about 1/4 to 1/2) you need at least 1/2 cup (for a small wreath - more if you want a slightly bigger wreath
mix together glue (about 1/2 cup or so) and food coloring, stirring with the craft stick.
add the spaghetti to the glue mixture and stir it around so that the mixture covers the spaghetti
on a sheet of wax paper, shape the spaghetti into a wreath
let it dry over night, peel the wax paper off and let the other side dry.
make a little bow out of ribbon and glue on the wreath (for decoration)
and attach another ribbon so that you can hang it to the tree or on the wall.
We also read the book The Christmas Crocodile by Bonny Becker
The book really didn't have anything to do with our craft idea...other than the crocodile eats everything, including the family Christmas presents.
Nathan said well, we eat spaghetti so that kinda goes along with it.
gotta love kid logic!
