- 16 Mini wheels pasta
- 16 Penne Rigate No.76 pasta
- Rhinestones (9 Red, 12 Green)
- Elmers Craft Bond
- 1 1/2 in stick on snowflake
- 1 6in. Piece of Gold Cord
Glue 2 pieces of penne together to form a V on one end a point on the other end. Repeat to make 8.
On a flat surface form an X with 4 of the penne, pointed ends in center, glue. Glue the other 4 penne pieces in the center of the V shapes formed by the X. (I use a sheet of foil to form these in case of glue drips.)
Glue 8 mini wheels in the spaces between the penne pieces, pushing them in to the place where they hit both sides of the opening.
Glue 8 mini wheels to V end of penne. (The wheels do not fit into the V but glue onto the points.)
Glue snowflake to center and glue rhinestones to center of wheels. Let dry completely turn over and add a drop of glue at each joint. When dry add hanging cord.
