Faux Coral Reef

I've always loved coral reefs and decided to try to make one. This is my Faux
Coral Reef that I glued pasta together and spray painted.

I hot glued baby bow tie pasta in a random order until I ended up
with a design that was eye catching.

The next step was to prime the pasta. Then I spray painted it with clear top coat and finished the piece by spray painting with Krylon Make It Stone textured paint.


 Finished product

I hope you enjoy this piece,


  1. That is amazing. You would never know that it wasn't real. I am a big coral fan too. That might be a fun suummer project to do with my daughter. Thank you for visiting my blog. :)

  2. I love that no coral reefs were destroyed to make this project. How creative! It looks like the real thing!

  3. Thanks, Shannon. A way to enjoy nature, without disturbing the balance.


I'd love to hear what you have to say, so please leave a comment.
