Idea 1: Use beads to make a DIY chandelier masterpiece!
Create your own Mardi Gras hanging decoration with beads, beads, and more beads! All you need are lots of plastic bead necklaces, a hot glue gun and your imagination. Drape, hang and dangle them in cool color patterns and unique designs – it's up to you! We snipped strands and glued them around the edge of a big bowl in color-block rows to create this chic chandelier shape. Add gobs of oversized beads, big pendants and doubloons for your glam pièce de résistance!
Trust us on this one: you can never have enough Mardi Gras beads. They can be used in centerpieces (see below), all sorts of DIY projects, and can be draped around to add an eye-catching touch of Mardi Gras glam to your party decor. Shop all Mardi Gras beads.
