Penny’s Tips Volume 96

    Hi everyone! Today I am going to show you how to make a Mardi Gras wreath for about $5.  My main reason for doing this is to use up all mom’s beads so she won’t make us all pose with them.

Mom bought the foam wreath and the mask at Dollar Tree. We had the ribbon and the beads. but you can get those things at the same store.

All you have to do is wrap the wreath with some ribbon. We had gold, but green or purple will work too. You could also skip the ribbon and use all beads.  I would like to add more beads, but I think mom hid some to torture us with.

And I know you all want to know if Rosie saw her shadow.

Actually, she has 2 shadows. I am not sure what that means.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Next week I will show you how to make Valentine’s gifts. I will also be hosting a Valentine’s Day giveaway.

Stop by tomorrow for our special cross over event.


  1. What a great craft. Love Mardi Gras wreath
    By the way if Miss fortune teller is still employed we did your 4 pile card trick. Our numbers were: 1st pile – Ace, 2nd pile – 10, 3rd pile – 9, 4th pile – 2. What do the cards mean?

  2. Penny it was so wonderful to see you look at the camera this time so we could get a full view of your beautiful face! Rosie I don’t know about any shadows but you sure look cute in the picture! 🙂 <3

  3. Oh no! I can’t see any photos today, just little squares where they should be.

  4. ROSIE! It’s a sign for sure, but you will have to tell us what you are forecasting! And hurry.

  5. You’re so talented, Penny. What a cute wreath. Well done.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches to all the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

  6. We love that wreath. You might even have tempted Mom to try making one.

    We know that Phil saw his shadow and that means 6 more weeks of winter. We only want that to be true if we can get some snow.

  7. Two shadows…does that mean 12 more weeks of winter? OMC…we really hope not! The wreath is terrific. Thanks for sharing. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

  8. Penny,

    Looks like a great DIY project to put things to a better use instead of torturing kitties with, right? lol Your mom loves to dress you up, so enjoy it because you know she does!
