Regal Crowns {Carnival 2013}


After my two Mardi Gras wreaths were stolen from my doors last year, I commissioned Melissa Henry of Show Me the Door to make two custom crowns.


The crowns fit perfectly on the inside of the door between the glass and Roman shade. Thieves: BEWARE!


The crowns are perfectly regal, painted in deep purple, bordered in shiny gold, and glittered to sparkle. Colorful purple, green, and gold stones also help to complete its festive appearance.


The crowns celebrate the revelry of the much-anticipated season. It’s Carnival time, afterall.


Royal Crowns, y’all!


  1. OMG--I love them! You were very wise to put those on the inside of the doors. Those are simply regal! I hope you are feeling better and have a great day! <3

  2. I LOVE those crowns. Only you would commission your own unique ones for your door. Better watch out..........those thieves are going to be lusting over them! Glad you are home and take it EASY!

  3. good gosh man I love those crowns! What a fantastic idea for those who have glass doors and no room for a wreath. You could do any season like this! Get your mardi on!
