It’s that time of year where the colors purple, gold, and green decorate doors and even people. It’s Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday is just around the corner. Decorate your door with this Mardi Gras Buffalo Plaid Wreath.
The Sayings Are SVG’s:
Adorned with sayings like feed me crawfish and tell me I’m pretty and laissez les bon temps rouler. Both SVG’s can be found by clicking the links above. These were cut with holographic green vinyl and placed on the painted wood via the Cricut.
The masks where bought at Dollar Tree. Beads can be found at many places. Find the beads you love and add them to the wreath. I love the Fleur De Lis. Therefore the beads were the perfect fit for this wreath.
For this wreath I decided to give you walk through and a how to make this mardi gras buffalo plaid wreath video. For instance you can visually see how to make it. How the mesh is being cut and attached to the wire frame.
Materials Need For Mardi Gras Wreath:
- purple deco mesh
- plaid deco mesh
- black deco mesh
- mardi gras beads
- wire wreath frame (large frame in pictures)
- black pipe cleaner
- Any other items you would like to glue onto the wreath
The large wire frame is what I use so you can see through the peek whole. If your using it for a main door the larger frame is best. However, if your using it for a non main door or for decor outside the small wreath frames are just fine.
Steps For The Wreath
First, cut the pipe cleaners in half. Use these to attach the black mesh to the bottom row at each section divider. Second, cut and attach the end of the mesh after completely going all the way around. After that see video below for more details.
Repeat this process in purple for the middle row and black for the top row. After that cut rolls of the plaid and purple to attach together at each section. There is more detail of this in the video below.
Above all, the pieces act as filler to help fill in the bear spots of the wreath. After the mesh is attached hot glue the other pieces. Beads, wood signs, and masks to the places you would like them to be. Before I usually do a layout of all the pieces before gluing.
Have a look at the video below as it describes in more detail how to make this mardi gras buffalo plaid wreath.
