July 7th is National Macaroni Day, and what better way to celebrate than by making your own pasta necklace? This easy craft is perfect for kids and adults alike, and it’s a great way to show your love for macaroni noodles. So gather up some supplies and get ready to create your very own pasta masterpiece!

I didn’t even know this was a holiday, but yes there actually is a National Macaroni Day. So we decided to celebrate with colored macaroni (okay I didn’t have macaroni so we used shaped pasta) necklaces.

Macaroni Necklace Supplies

  • Alcohol
  • Food Coloring
  • Zip Lock type bags
  • Dried Pasta
  • Yarn
  • Yarn Needle or a Bobby Pin works great as a needle

How To Color Dried Macaroni

  1. Place pasta in a Ziploc bag, and fill with alcohol until pasta is covered.
  2. Add lots of food coloring. 
  3. Close bags and let them sit until the pasta is the color you want (we did about 5 minutes).

Carefully remove pasta from bags and allow it to completely dry.

Thread pasta shapes onto the yarn. Tie one of the pasta shapes at the end to stop the others from falling off.

String all the pasta onto the yarn….

Fasten ends together when finished and proudly wear for National Macaroni Day!
