DIY Mardi Gras Centerpiece
Gorgeous centerpiece that's perfect for Mardi Gras!
Mardi Gras themed miniature tree
Mardi Gras themed picks, sprays, and ornaments
1.5 wired ribbon
2.5" wired ribbon
Trim the bottom of the stems to make them shorter if needed.
Place the two pieces Christmas pines, pointing away from each other, around the miniature tree and zip tie to hold them in place.
Trim the excess zip tie tails.
Cut 2 pieces of each ribbon styles into 36" strips
For each one, measure out 12" give it a pinch and twist.
Then from that point measure out 8" give it a pinch and fold over to the first twist point.
Repeat with the 2nd 36" inch strip of ribbon.
Then take one loop of each ribbon design, with the loops pointing outwards, and secure together with a pipe cleaner.
Repeat the bow making process with the remaining two strips.
Attach both bows to the pine base on opposite sides of the miniature tree using the excess pipe cleaner.
Next, make two more bows. Except this time you'll cut the strips into 30", so 2x of the 2.5" ribbon strips and 2x of the 1.5" ribbons strips. Create 8" tails and 8" loops for this set.
Attach to the opposite ends of the centerpiece base using zip ties.
Now fluff out all your bows!
Cut the stems as needed from your greenery stems.
Add your greenery to the base, but create a balanced look with similar looking stems.
Secure with zip ties or glue.
Fluff out your greenery so it looks like it's incorporated into the base.
Customize your centerpiece to your taste. Add your picks, sprays, and ornaments to the pine base. Remember, to keep your design balanced.
Secure attachments with glue.
