We used uncooked macaroni pasta for stems and pasta wheels for the pumpkins. To color our pasta, we separated each into a sandwich bag. We added some green food coloring for the stems and yellow and red food coloring to make orange for the pumpkins, along with some alcohol to help the food coloring spread and adhere. The girls took care of shaking up the bags by dancing and jumping around. After shaking, we removed the pasta from the sandwich bags and placed them into paper towels to dry, and added some glitter for some sparkly fun.
