Lucky Star Lane

Christmas makes me all nostalgic.  You?  So when I saw this Retro inspired Macaroni tree….I was giddy.  Yes…….it’s a MACARONI tree…..not a PASTA tree…..that’s probably what they would call it today.  When I was growing up back in the day…….a child of the 70s…..yes, I am THAT old……how else do you think I got this sassy?  Back in the day, no one called pasta…..pasta.  It was macaroni.  Didn’t matter what the shape was……heck we didn’t have all those fancy shapes. We had Spaghetti and Macaroni.

Lucky Star Lane crafty ideas from two crafty girls.

I love how this turned out.  They glammed it up by spray painting it silver and adding tiffany blue.  Beautiful.  base mac treeThis is something you could easily do with the kids.
