Project Instructions

Step: 1

Make about 18 double points - layer white 1 ½ inch ribbon with pieces with 1inch silver ribbon pieces down center of each. Staple each point twice to secure and staple to cardboard backing circle, spacing evenly around circle.


Step: 2

Prepare flowers and attach to the backing piece with the points.


Step: 3

Make another backing piece with basic double backing streamers in white and silver - Take 1 piece of each color of the 2 yard ribbons, lay one on top of the other and fold in ½ so that the right side of the ribbon still shows on both sides (the top will make a point). Then staple the point onto another cardboard backing circle in 2 rows of 4 double streamers - overlapping slightly.


Step: 4

Hot glue a large white and silver boa around outside flower piece behind points.


Step: 5

Make a “Homecoming” loop streamer - take the 6 inch pieces of 1 ½ inch wide white ribbon, fold in ½ and staple to form loop. Staple loops on 1 yard piece of 1 ½ inch white ribbon starting at bottom and slightly overlapping to cover staples. Put 1 silver glitter sticker letter on each loop to spell HOMECOMING. Staple on mum in center front of streamers.


Step: 6

Make a white 1 ½ inch streamer that says “Grapevine” and one that says “Mustangs” in silver glitter sticker letters and add them down each side of the mum.


Step: 7

Add a round braid in white and silver with a puff of white and silver boa at the bottom.

6 - 8 assorted metallic silver ribbons - ½ inch to 1inch wide, different textures, etc…
