Today I am celebrating Mardi Gras crafts and decorations :
What is the purpose of Mardi Gras masks?Masks are an integral part of Mardi Gras culture. During early Mardi Gras celebrations hundreds of years ago, masks were a way for their wearers to escape class constraints and social demands. Mask wearers could mingle with people of all different classes and could be whomever they desired, at least for a few days.

Decorating idea;s from the Dollar store
The Dollar store. Dollar Tree and Wal mart has a great selection of Mardi Gras supplies to decorate with. But throws from the parade are also awesome to decorate with or filler for containers. Lisa
