I tried to find examples of a Mardi Gras themed tree on Pinterest and Google, but all I found were a couple of trees with masks on them. Not really my thing. I knew once I picked up those peacock themed ornaments that I wanted to allude to Mardi Gras with feathers, birds, and bright colours!
I had been to a few big box stores like Loblaws and Home Depot to try and find decorations, but I only found traditional colours and themes. But then I hit the jackpot at Walmart! They had so many perfect decorations that I actually had to put some BACK. I had some ideas for my theme if decorations couldn't be found, like making my own with paint or colourful feathers in clear ornaments. But I never even found clear ornaments. So you know what, I didn't DIY my tree (bad blogger) but I did build a tree that I love and that will hopefully last me many years!
I present to you, my awesome tree.
Oh, and in case you were wondering what I have under my tree, since Santa doesn't come to my condo, it is Myrtle the Turtle! She is enjoying napping on my throw blanket from Chapters.
