Laissez les bons temps rouler: Let the Good Times Roll!
Since Mardi Gras was on Tuesday I took a raincheck and decided to celebrate on Friday! (I work late on Tuesdays, not so much in the party mood then).
We celebrated in true N’awlins style!
I made chicken and sausage creole with red beans and rice! Drank a few hurricanes!
And made King Cake cupcakes!
But of course I needed to dress appropriately as well!
I bought these masks at the dollar store. I loved the feather one but it was flat and boring. I liked the structure of the silver one. So, why not combine the two!?
I hot glued the masks together. I also hot glued 2 bamboo skewers as a handle and wrapped that with black ribbon.
I laid out 12 beaded necklaces, singled out 3 and wrapped the 3 around the bunch.
I secured each end with wire.
I snipped off the stragglers on the ends.
Wrapped the ends in black ribbon. This will also be used to tie the necklace on.
One last detail: I glued a crown to the side of my necklace.
I’m really getting a lot of use out of the skirt I made in my Star Wars Refash: https://therefashstash.wordpress.com/2016/01/20/star-wars-refash/
