New Orleans Parade Beads : fleur de lis

What is the meaning of the New in New Orleans?The fleur de lis has become the symbol of New Orleans especially, after Katrina. It is symbolic in many ways. Spiritually, it represents an Iris, a beautiful purple bloom that symbolizes the holy Trinity. Fleur is French for flower, de meaning of and li meaning three. It is the symbol of the New Orleans Saints

This chipboard one can be used on the door or on the wall . I painted mine brown (like wood) and decorate with Mardi Gras trinkets.

Fun way to use beads anytime of the year:

I buy these plastic empty ornaments at the Dollar store and after Christmas fill them with beads for table decorations.
