Mardi Gras Carnival Masks

021mardigras1200This section contains half-face masks for Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday." Many people celebrate the Mardi Gras carnival by holding parades, parties and wearing colorful masks, costumes and beads.

Cities that hold famous Mardi Gras celebrations include New Orleans, Louisiana, Mobile, Alabama and Sydney, Australia. You wouldn't know by watching the parades and wild behavior of pie-eyed party participants, but Mardi Gras is a religious celebration. The festivities begin on or after Epiphany and wind up on the day before Ash Wednesday. Fat Tuesday refers to the practice stuffing yourself silly on the last night before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season (penitential season of Lent).

"Fat Tuesday" Masks

 

Decorate your full or half face Mardi Gras mask with cut and paste shapes, brightly colored paints, feathers, sequins, and paper or fabric trimmings.  Traditional Mardi Gras Colors were established in 1892 by Rex, the King of Carnival. 

 

  • Purple for justice
  • Green for faith
  • Gold for power


Liven up the party with these over sized paper mardi gras beads that children can print, color and tape together to make large wall hangings or decorative garlands.  Mix and match different sizes and shapes of the paper beads ranging from squares, ovals, inverted ovals and circles plus some really cool Fleur De lis paper chain cutouts to add for special flair.
