Have Your Own Mardi Gras Parade With These 20 Fun DIY Masks

Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday is just around the corner and if you’re in New Orleans you now that the celebration is going to be a blast. After all, Mardi Gras could be considered as their trademark holiday. Unfortunately, not everyone can attend the wonderful masquerades and parades of New Orleans, but that shouldn’t stop you from having fun at home.

Throw your own Mardi Gras party complete with the colorful masks that you can make yourself. Gold (or yellow), green and purple are the official colors of Mardi Gras, just like the trademark beads, fleur-de-lis and harlequins. So, bring all your gold, green and purple colors out, fetch the feathers and yellow beads and you and your kids can turn plain plastic masks into Mardi Gras worthy works of art.

Here are some ideas on how to make and embellish your masks.
