Mardi Gras Wreath..

2 Days

I was inspired by a project I saw on Hometalk yrs. ago. EmDirr, from' version was so unique & wonderful. Could I do it justice? It was an old, recycled picture frame, made into a Colorful Wreath....

Then painted 2, 2 ft. slats, with the same Gold Leaf paint. After they dried, I measured them to the INSIDE frame & cut 4 pieces at a 45 degree angle, Glued them securely to the Decoupaged area, dried 24 hrs...


The next day I glued my birdie to the top corner... And hung to start decorating..


Using hot glue, florals, Ribbon that matched my craft paper & a pretty Mask Ornament I found at Walmart half off after Christmas, I began my design...

Hot glued a small piece of cardboard into the bottom, right hand corner where I began placing flowers...

I made 3 ribbons...


Spray painted a Chopstick black. Cut it to my desired length, about 4" long, & Hot Glued it behind the corner edge of the mask.


Glueing my mask in place with the florals & hanging it up...


How pretty on my front door! Thanks for taking a look...& Thanks Em Dirr @ for the inspiration.
