Mardi Gras falls on February 25th this year and surprising enough it is the #1 holiday for DecoExchange wreath orders. So, if you’re starting to build a wreath making business definitely save this deco mesh and ribbon tail Mardi Gras wreath tutorial and get your inventory prepped.

Y’all this voluminous wreath screams Mardi Gras with gold, purple, and greens!

This design uses a slightly wider attachment than some of our other looks and it balances perfectly with the ribbon tails and deco mesh ruffles.
