Mardi Gras Week: Craft Ideas


Welcome back to Mardi Gras Week at Embellished Bayou! Be sure and check out day one and day two of the party if you haven’t already.  Today I’ll be sharing a some Mardi Gras craft ideas. 

I made these cute little signs for my Etsy shop:

Hang them anywhere for a little dose of Mardi Gras spirit!

They’re cute hanging on a Mardi Gras wreath or tree:

Or even tied around a bottle of wine for a hostess gift:

They started out like this: IMG_3365

and after hubby’s help: IMG_3366

ended up like this: IMG_3367

A little paint, rhinestones,  ribbon, and voila!

  1. I love your signs they are perfect! And that floor lamp ROCKS! :)

  2. These are fantastic. I love your hand-painting too - it looks so pretty!

  3. I love your new sign paired with the wine, fun and festive. It is like a complete party in one gift if you add the mask.

    The beads came today!

  4. What fun ideas! I love the signs and all the bead ideas!

  5. So cute! thanks for linking up to Trash to Treasure Tuesday. :)

  6. Love the bead art! Love the fleur de lis. We have a whole tub of beads in the cellar from that trip in 2004. I've been back since Katrina, but not for Mardi gras.

  7. No Mardi Gras decor but I think it is really cute.


  8. Nice post, we referenced it on our website for a Mardi Gras post. Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you have to say!
