Introduction: Flying Spaghetti Monster Tree Topper

This holiday season, show your guests that you have been touched by his noodly appendage with this tree centerpiece!


Can I get a RAMEN!?


Now as a lit ornament!

Step 1: Materials

Sheet of Yellow Foam (1 long sheet)
Foam Spheres (2)
Googly Eyes or slightly smaller foam spheres


Razor Blade for cutting
Straight Edge
Small pins for setting
Hot Glue

You'll also need a wire hangar and some heavy duty wire cutters to make eye stalks.

Step 2: Make Noodles

Cut your foam longways into thin strips. I eyeballed thickness and am super happy with the results.

Step 3: Meatballs

Paint some meatballs!

Some red mixed with a little black for that cooked meatball look.

You should hire on your 10 year old sister when applicable to start building your meatball army!

Step 4: Stiff Wire

Bend and cut some stiff wire, wire from an old hangar works well. Leave a vertical top to affix your eyes and some extra space at the bottom to press into your meatballs.

Then poke some holes in a noodle and wrap as shown.

Step 5: Attach Noodles to Meatballs

I started off using pins to get a sense of how things would come together... Once I found the positioning that I liked, I pulled the pins (one at a time) and placed a small dab of hot glue.

Step 6: Eye Stalks

Glue your eyes to the tops of the eye stalks. Then press the eye stalks into the meatballs. Add a small amount of hot glue at the base to keep them from falling out and/or spinning.

Step 7: Top Your Tree!

If your tree is mobile and/or in a windy location, be sure it's affixed with a firm grip.

You can also diversify and place your symbol of his noodlyness elsewhere.

I've been giving these out each year since reading your instructable & they're always popular! I've altered the material list slightly using yellow pipe cleaners for the wire, red puffballs instead of foam and sliced up lengths of Shamwow for the noodles. Thanks so much for something that's given so much pleasure over such a long period of time. Ramen Terry

Have any of you seen this?


   

Not a bad idea...
Might traumatize some neighbors (I live right near three different church denominations, as well as two Jehovah's witnesses and one scientologist neighbors...

Eh, it used to be worse - our local Baptist sections are trying to buy the entirety of my street, but a few years ago all three churches were competing directly.  The petitioners and solicitors were like locusts...

awesome!!! can't wait to make my own fsm!!

RAmen, Brother.

May his noodliness be with you, always. For surely you've been touched by his holy appendages.

Yarr indeed! We be a merry crew of deck swabbers!

Gyar. He who is noodly shows his appreciation of yer pirate ship and respects paid to Him.
