Put together a fun Mardi Gras Wreath to brighten your door and help "laissez les bons temps rouler"!
Mardi Gras Wreath Supply List:

- green netting or burlap (at least 10 yards of 6" or more wide)
- 8+ yards purple and gold ribbons
- Mardi Gras masks
- Mardi Gras beads
- hot glue gun
I did not purchase anything for this wreath. It was made entirely with supplies I have had laying around the "closet of doom" (my craft closet) for quite awhile. But I searched on Amazon for similar supplies - these are those affiliate links I mentioned up at the top.First I hot glued the mesh and ribbon in bunches around the wreath to give it a poofy look. My purple and gold ribbons were ⅛" thin so I did it with the mesh. Then I added the masks. This one I stole from my son who got it as a prize from something or other.
These were some cheap half masks that I decorated with glitter glue. I may go back and add some feathers to them as well.
I tied the beads on with some ribbon so they would drape.
And then I hung it on the door. All in all it took me about an hour, and most of that was figuring out how I wanted things placed.

Happy Mardi Gras! I did a post on a king cake and I got some comments that folks did not know what that was. Haha it is a way of life here on the Gulf Coast.
