They are made almost entirely of pasta:
- Pipe Rigate (shells)
- Rigatoni or Paccheri (tubular)
- Stellette (little stars)
- Farfalle (butterflies: bow ties)
- Rotelle (wheels)
- Hot glue gun
- Elmer's glue
- Self-drying modeling clay (in Italy called DAS)
I am without a glue gun, so I've done this the hard way, using only Elmer's glue! Save yourself a lot of time and use a glue gun if you have it.
I first made about 3 dozen small balls, about as wide as a quarter, to use as the heads. They dry quickest near a heating vent or heat radiator.
After about 12 hours the little heads were dry. Next, I added the hair (Stellette) to the heads.
Then, I assembled the torsos (Paccheri) with the arms (Pipe) and wings (Farfalle).
Finally, I added the heads to the torsos and the halos (Rotelle) on top of the heads to finish.

These look great on a Christmas tree, or on a gift as decoration. Happy Holidays!
