After gluing all the pasta pieces to the Styrofoam ball, allow enough time for the glue to completely dry and hold the pasta firmly in place. This will prevent the pasta from shifting when you paint it later on.

The next step is to paint the pasta ball with the color of your choice. For our example, we chose dark blue. Start with the first layer by painting the insides of the pasta flowers, leaving the tips unpainted.


After the first layer has dried, apply a second coat of paint to only the top of the pasta flowers, using a lighter color than the previous layer. This will create a more colorful and visually appealing decoration.

Allow the second coat to dry completely, and voilà! Your pasta decoration is complete.
