Flying Spaghetti Monster Top Ornament Tutorial

May his noodly appendages touch you this holidays seasson!

Hello! I know I haven't posted anything for a very long time and I probably won't do so for a while after this post. However I couldn't resist sharing this idea. The winter solstice celebration time is near and this usually involves decorating a tree. This year instead of a star or an angel as the top ornament I thought of trying something different: a SFM (  Flying Spaghetti Monster) ornament. For those who don't know what it is: Flying Spaghetti Monster

For the meatballs and the pasta I used polymer clay. Terracotta for the meatballs and beige+translucent white for the pasta.

 I used some aluminum foil to give the meatballs some texture. I also used a couple of shiny eye shadows to give it a festive glow.

 Created a large spaghetti...

 ...the antennas

 After pre-baking the meatballs for 5 minutes I wrapped the spaghetti around them

 This is how it looked liked after I baked it for another 15 minutes.

I used acrylic paint for the eyes and some glitter as well.

 For the base I used one of these cardboard egg box cones

 After I cut it out I painted it in egg shell color and purred  white glitter over it before the paint got dry

 Glued it with hot glue...

Here is his Noodliness on the top of our tree!
