One section at a time coat the mask with paint or glue.  While the paint (use a corresponding color to the layer of glitter) or glue is still wet coat with glitter.  Allow each section to dry completely before moving on to the next color.

Shake off excess glitter between colors.  Remember the colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green and gold so keep that in mind as you glitter.

Once your mask is completely dry add to the top of your Mardi Gras tree!  Maybe one day I’ll actually make it to New Orleans.  In the meantime I’ll bring Mardi Gras to me.
