Pasta Fascinators

Fancy, royal-inspired headpieces made of easy and affordable ... pasta!




  • Fabric- or ribbon-covered plain headbands
  • Pasta in a variety of shapes
  • Hot-glue gun and hot-glue sticks
  • Circles cut from cardboard, or half of a small Styrofoam ball
  • Circle cut from felt to match cardboard or Styrofoam
  • Craft paint


  1. Step 1

    Using cardboard or Styrofoam ball as a base, glue pasta into a creative shape with hot glue. We made flowers by arranging 5-6 jumbo shells in a circle.

  2. Step 2

    Paint fascinators desired color(s). Add finishes such as gloss or glitter, as desired.

  3. Step 3

    Glue base with pasta design onto headband. Glue felt circle underneath design, sandwiching headband, to secure design and protect hair.

    These pasta fascinators are a great idea - even as favors for a bridal shower. Would you please post a video of the segment with close-up pics of those worn by Martha and the audience helpers? Thank you. This has inspired me to design lots of Holiday decorations using pasta.
