Make a Mardi Gras Wreath

I cam across these purple and green Christmas ornaments at 75% off.  Hmmm, I thought, these are Mardi Gras colors, but where is the gold?  One aisle over, I found garlands of gold beads at the same discount.  Yeah!  Time to create my Mardi Gras wreath.

This was last year’s wreath.  It looked a little crunched after being stored.  Which one do you like better?
