Welcome to day four of Mardi Gras Week at Embellished Bayou! Be sure and check out the previous posts so you don’t miss any of the fun. Today I’ll be featuring Mardi Gras Wreath ideas.
First I’ll share a little before and after with you. I decided my Mardi Gras wreath needed a little sprucing up this year. The colors tend to get a little faded after a while. The purple was looking more like hot pink than purple. Here it is before:

I found the wire star garland in my craft stash.
Here’s my front door wreath. I just re-purposed my gold glitter Christmas wreath by adding some purple, green & gold garland, glitter feathers, and a pretty bow.
I also may or may not have copied her idea for a layered bow:
You definitely know it’s Mardi Gras time when you get to her door!

I also love the festive garland around the front door. That gold ribbon is what happens when you store your ribbon tightly wound up. You get a giant curly-q!
I also had to get a shot of her neighbor’s wreath, we are always noticing it from across the street. It really sparkles in the sunlight, even though it’s a little faded now.
So basically, this post is to show you the great variety of wreath ideas out there. You can use beads from your parade stash, leftover party boas, and even Christmas clearance items! Pretty much anything will work for a Mardi Gras wreath as long as it’s colorful and sparkly!
I’ll be sharing this post with the following parties:
