When inspiration strikes, you just have to run with it. Even if it means people will look at you funny as you explain to them why you are saving that box of Star Wars macaroni and cheese. (Hint: it wasn’t for eating.)
It wasn’t until I was going through my 3rd box (of a 4-pack) of Star Wars Kraft mac & cheese, as I watched an X-wing traveling along the bottom of a pot of boiling water, that I got the idea….I was going to make macaroni art! A macaroni frame! Yes, it was totally going to work.
I somehow convinced Nabila (of Nabzillla.com) to join me in these shenanigans and she was kind of enough to take all the photos used in this post.
The process was simple in theory: take a simple flat frame, glue on the macaroni, paint.
In practice: you really shouldn’t be spray painting on a windy day. Especially not in a parking lot full of leaves.
My original idea was simply to make a frame, but considering that both of us have recently developed a pin-collecting habit we thought this would make a perfect pin display! Just cut out a sheet of cork, glue to the back of the frame, and we’re done!
I must say, I’m embarrassingly pleased with the end product!
A special shoutout and THANKS to Nabila, of course, and also the awesome pin designers that made our pins!
