I was at my parent’s house the other day and I was looking at all of my mom’s beautiful Christmas decorations. I normally stop for a while to see the ornaments on the tree, because they bring back so many memories. This year, I saw DIY noodle ornaments that my Mom had made when we were little and I wanted to share them with you.
The story behind them is that one year, my dad (accidentally) threw away all of our ornaments because my mom kept them in a black garbage bag. Well, when he saw the bag sitting there (she was putting away Christmas decor), he took it out “with the trash” and the rest is history. She lost all of her favorite ornaments (our “baby’s first” ones & there “newly married” ones…) They didn’t even realize it until the following year, so they couldn’t save them.
Being resourceful, she was quick to make new ornaments for our tree and she has had them ever since. These DIY Noodle Angels are still one of my favorites.
I don’t know the “correct” name for each of these noodles, but I will try to get them right for you. (well, I think that I know all of them except the hair on the angel. I am guessing Ramen, but I’m not 100%. If it is Ramen, It is cut up & of course, uncooked!)
I am just going to show you a lot of pictures. Oh- you also need a little wooden ball for the head and markers or paint to draw on the faces. My mom used ribbon and jingle-bells, too.
Here you go…
Glue it all together
