Mardi Gras week
Hi There! I decided to participate in Mardi Gras week at Embellished Bayou by sharing the decorations that my friend Sarah and I made last year. Check out the other Mardi Gras crafts there.
Each circle has Mardi Gras beads that I got in Nawlins in 2004 glued around the edge. Also some medallions and coins are used here and there. We painted one side of each circle and put mostly Gold design wrapping paper on the back. Unfortunately the wind is too strong on my front porch, which I discovered the hard way, so I'm not sure where and how to display them.

BTW, When we went to Mardi Gras (dh and I) we watched the parades in the family part of town, not in the French quarter with the wild college students.
