Make a Mardi Gras Bead Wreath

Mardi Gras is coming up in a few days!  We love a good Fat Tuesday celebration, and our favorite part (of course) is the beads.  We’ve seen lots of amazing Mardi Gras bead crafts over the years, and many of them come from our creative pal Aunt Peaches.  If we had a who-loves-Mardi-Gras-beads-more contest, she’d probably win.  Last year she used some of her bead stash to create this super-festive wreath for the occasion.  Hers starts out using a bright and tinsel-y Valentine’s Day wreath as a base, though you could get creative and use just about any round shape for holding your beads!  [how to make a Mardi Gras bead wreath]
