Make a Mardi Gras Mask Decoration

Looking for a last minute decoration for Mardi Gras? Make a Mardi Gras mask decoration that can double as party favors for guests. Make just a few or several decorated masks. Place the masks in a Styrofoam holder and showcase them during Mardi Gras celebrations.

Materials Needed:

  • Plastic Masks
  • Mardi Garland
  • Wooden Dowels
  • Mardi Gras Beaded
  • Feathers
  • Gems
  • 3/8″ ribbon
  • Styrofoam Base (I am using a half circle)
  • Mini Bowdabra
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire
  • Hot Glue Gun

 

Instructions:

1. Begin by gathering all the materials you will need for this craft. Most of the materials I found at the Dollar Store.

2. Hot glue garland and beads to dowels. Leave the bottom of the dowel clear of garland so that it can fit into the Styrofoam.

3. Glue feathers onto the side of the masks and place feathers in the center of one of the masks. Glue them onto the dowels.

4. To make the bows for the mask: Cut 18″ of Bowdabra Bow Wire and fold it in half. Place the wire into the Mini Bowdabra.
