Mardi Gras falls during the first week in March, but if you can’t travel to New Orleans to enjoy the festivities, bring the festivities to you! You can make your own Mardi Gras Party Banner that is packed with the color and charm Mardi Gras has to offer. Take a peek below at how to craft your very own, perfect for adding a pop of color to your Mardi Gras parties and celebrations!
Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday.
Mardi Gras Party Banner:
Mardi Gras mask napkins
Hot glue, glue gun
We were able to find the package of napkins we used for this project at Hobby Lobby. Print or show the mobile 40% off coupon and you can score a package of them for around $1. The foil masks can be found at your local dollar store for $1 per package of six. If you have some leftover curling ribbon from Christmas, you can make this entire banner for around $2. Now that is worth celebrating!
Mardi Gras Party Banner Directions:
1. Begin by laying your ribbon out flat on the floor. This will make it easier to apply the décor.
2. Unfold a napkin and place a strip of glue along the inside seam. Fold the napkin over the ribbon and press.
3. Add a strip of glue to the backside/top of each foil mask. Press the mask to the ribbon.
4. Continue this process alternating napkins and masks until the banner is the length of your choice.
When you are done, hang your banner for instant Mardi Gras flare! It is the perfect décor piece if you are looking for something that is just as festive as it is frugal.
Gather your supplies and give this easy craft a try. Mardi Gras will be here before you know it, so be ready with this Mardi Gras party banner!
