Whether you're in New Orleans or not, celebrate Mardi Gras by dressing up, eating beignets and making DIY Mardi Gras Masks! And if you're looking for an inspiration or two, you won't be disappointed with the ideas I have on this blog!
DIY Mardi Gras Masks You Can Rock On The Street
When I think of Mardi Gras, I think of bright, shiny outfits, beads, dancing, parades — and masks! I know this is also a celebration most people in New Orleans don't want to miss. The festivity is without a doubt exhilarating. Now, if you're preparing to join the Mardi Gras weekend (or planning to attend an upcoming masquerade event), then you're in for a treat! These masks are easy to make, not time-consuming, and are quite intriguing. Wearing any of these on the street parade will definitely get you all psych up and have that exuberant energy. While my two little girls and I won't be hitting the streets of New Orleans, we *will* be making DIY Mardi Gras masks and dancing in our own living room! Hey, I'll take any excuse to craft with my little ones.
