Mardi Gras Christmas Porch Decorations

concretenprimrosesDecember 13, 2008

Hi, My friend Sarah helped me to make these. The piece was inspired by visiting New Orleans last month. Its hard to see, but all the circles but one are edged with Mardi Gras beads that dh and I got at parades when we went the year before Katrina. It is hanging in my living room, but I hope to move it to the front porch this weekend.

I'm adding a few closeups, realizing that they don't show up real well. Hope to move it to the porch this weekend. I did buy one big piece of foam board for the biggest circle, but the rest were made from scraps from a project at my work.

I have a lot of paints and craft supplies from yard sales as does my friend and we just went wild. The back sides are mostly all shiny Christmas paper, but the turn independently of eachoter and constantly form different views.
