OK. You've got rotini pasta. You've got some lovely coloured rope or bush rope.
Here's what the kids can do.
1. cut the rope to the desired length of your garland
2. leaving some room at the end, wind the rope around a single rotini and back again, tying a knot before moving on
3. leave about 4cm between each rotini and continue until you run out of rope or pasta
4. add a knot of rope between each piece of pasta to achieve the rugged look
And hey presto, Youv'e got your Judy Garland–oops Christmas Garland we mean..
//V- For variation, you can use any combination of pasta tube, bow, shell, wagon wheel etc..
