How to Make a Mardi Gras Bead Dog

Now that Mardi Gras has come and gone, what are you going to do with all those beads? Since my kids are on break from school (and I am tired of hearing that they are bored), I decided to show my youngest how to make a traditional Mardi Gras Bead Dog. I remember making hundreds of these cute dogs when I was little and even tried to sell them around our neighborhood.

With mounds of throws in my living room, beads are in no short supply and this kept her occupied for hours. She loved it so much that she decided to film a tutorial for you all to enjoy!

Did you make a bead dog? I’d love to hear how it turned out! Want more Mardi Gras fun? Check out the top 5 places you can score a New Orleans King Cake!
