Unlike the summer-camp stuff you inflicted on Mom, these chunky creations are pretty chic. The trick to a sophisticated strand? Use fancy pasta shapes and gel-based or liquid food coloring in neon (available at craft stores) to create eye-catching hues.
We made this macaroni necklace for her day of school project. We took noodles and dyed them like you would dye Easter eggs. Let dry overnight and string them together. This zig zag pattern happens when u string them :)
