Mardi Gras Headpiece
Get the kids in the mood for their own Mardi Gras parade by making a Mardi Gras Headpiece. Purple, Gold and Green are Mardi Gras colors so this headpiece is right on target and easy to make.
Purple Craft Foam
Gold, Green and Purple Metallic Pipe Cleaners
Cut a strip of the purple craft foam about 1 1/2" wide and long enough to fit around the child's head. You may need to cut two strips and glue them together to make it long enough. Trim to the right size overlapping enough to glue to make a circle.
Glue Gold pipe cleaners along each edge of the crown, ending in a little swirl at the end of the bottom of the crown. Use the picture as a reference.
Fold one purple, one gold and one green pipe cleaner in half and curl the ends as shown. Using the picture as a reference glue the shaped pipe cleaners to the front of the crown letting the green one extend beyond the bottom edge of the crown.
It's that simple, now round up your friends and have your own Mardi Gras parade.
