This is my first Craftster Challenge and I had so much fun making it!
It's a portrait of my husband, Greg made out of his favorite type of noodles.



I think the curly noodles worked really well for making his beard! Smiley

Thanks!  Grin
Using his favorite noodles worked out well--I had plenty left over to make him dinner!

This is great! The only portrait I think so far where the noodles haven't been altered!

Simple, and yet so effective!  It looks awesome and should totally have a place of honor in your kitchen.  Nice work!

It was tough to pick between the great entries, but this one's getting my vote. You managed to get such a strong sense of personality into a pasta portrait, and that's impressive, haha! And looking at it, there's no questioning what it's made from. Great job! I bet he loves it.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

From the thumbnail I thought it looked like Fidel Castro.  I finally had to click on it to see why someone would do a portrait of him.  Luckily it does NOT look like Fidel Castro in the full size! hahaha!  Good job, because it DOES look like your husband!

Ha!  My husband's co-workers always call him Fidel Castro because of his beard.  He will crack up when I show him this!
