Pin It Weekly #139

We'll be celebrating Mardi Gras on Tuesday.  That means a break from school, parades, parties, balls, and drinking (for other people, anyway). I thought you might enjoy a few Fat Tuesday pins.

Festive King Cake Cheese Ball has the flavor and colors of a King Cake, but in an easy to make cheese ball. Great dessert to celebrate Mardi Gras!:

My Mardi Gras Holiday Wreath featured in a Blog.  http://blog.christmaslightsetc.com/decorating/reuse-christmas-ball-ornaments/:

Mardi Gras colors: purple, green, gold
You could make this for any holiday since you can find beads of all colors for super cheap!:

Beads everywhere. Yes, the trees do look like this after the parades. They get caught in the limbs when thrown. In some towns and cities (including NOLA) you can see broken, faded beads all year long: just look up.

Centerpiece + grab-and-go Mardi Gras accessories = these easy to make decorations! Everyone will be jazzed over these giant cocktail glasses filled with tons of "throws" and adorned with feathered masks!:

Today my class and I decorated the classroom door to participate in the school-wide contest. Winners get a king cake!

Students decorated the masks and I hung everything up during my planning period so they'll see it when they come in tomorrow morning. I think it brightens the hallway just about right! And this is the extent of my Mardi Gras for this year.  I'll explain why later; so see you then.
