So above you have your typical Christmas wreath. With the holiday season over it seems tired and forlorn. So get yourself some Mardi Gras garland. I got mine at Walgreen’s.

Remove the red bow and then just kinda drape the garland around the wreath. I got these little ceramic carnival heads somewhere, I don’t remember. Then just take a green, gold and purple beads, the Mardi Gras colours, and drape it over the wreath. No need to be really meticulous. This is a carnival decoration after all. The effect is that it looks like the wreath has just exploded on the door.

There ya go. Easy peasy.

Happy Mardi Gras!!!
