  2. Add a few drops of food colouring and two tablespoons of white vinegar to the bag
  3. Seal the bag and mix until the pasta is brightly coloured
  4. Repeat for each colour
  5. Allow the pasta to dry on some paper towels
  6. To assemble the necklace, start by cutting a piece of string roughly 80 centimetres
  7. Tie a knot in one end of the string
  8. Thread the different coloured pasta onto the string.
  9. Once the string has been threaded with pasta, tie together the two ends of the string to form the necklace.
