I mentioned here when I shared my Handprint Mardi Gras Masks craft that we have a huge celebration in St. Louis for Mardi Gras!  We actually have several celebrations throughout the year where we have huge and awesome parades!  I shared these Parade Shakers that I made for the 4th of July Parade!

These mason jar parade shakers are a great version of the parade shakers that are specifically made for little hands!  I have three boys and the stick becomes a problem (i.e. poking device, sword, bat, etc.) These parade streamers are made with a mason jar ring!  You can also use shower curtain rings from the dollar store but if your house is like mine…you might have a few of these lid rings laying around to use!

I have included some links for your convenience!

Supplies for Mardi Gras Parade Streamers:

  • Ribbon or fabric scraps
  • Mason Jar Rings
  • Scissors

Mason Jar Lid Parade Shakers

These really couldn’t be easier!

I used 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon.  You can use a mixture of sizes or even fabric scraps cut into strips.  Be sure to raid your stash before you purchase anything!  You can also use dollar store plastic tablecloths cut into strips!

I cut a length double what I wanted my streamers to be and simply tied it on the mason jar lid.  Repeat for all the colors of ribbon or fabric.

Mason Jar Ring Parade Streamers I told you that was easy!

Mardi Gras Parade Shakers

They are the perfect accompaniment to the Mardi Gras Masks!
