Project Instructions

Step: 1

Make about 12 double points using 4 inch pieces - layer 1 ½ inch red ribbon for base of points with 1 inch clear ribbon printed with black footballs and a black stripe along each edge. Staple each point twice to secure and then staple to backing, spacing evenly around circle.


Step: 2

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


Step: 3

Make basic double backing streamers - take 1 piece of each color of the 1 yard ribbons, lay one on top of the other and fold in half so that the right side of the ribbon still shows on both sides (the top will form a point). Then staple the point onto a second cardboard backing circle in 1 row of 2 double streamers and 1 row of 3 double streamers, overlapping slightly.


Step: 4

Add the following with staples or hot glue
8 assorted red printed ribbon - different sizes and designs
Black, silver and white printed ribbon - different sizes and designs, 4 pieces each
4 wide red mesh ribbons
2 medium black mesh ribbons
Silver “Homecoming” garland
2 silver star garlands
4 assorted clear ribbons printed with black or silver


Step: 5

Hot glue or tie the following embellishments as shown
Red and black “Touchdown”
Red and white “#1”
Red and white “Go team Go”
Red football helmets in assorted sizes
Red and white “Go team Go” flags
Red and white “#1” heart
“Touchdown” star with football
“Go team Go” horseshoe


Step: 6

Hot glue the backing with the points and flower to the backing with the streamers, hot glue a red garter onto the back of the cardboard backing that the streamers are attached to. When cool, hot glue the third cardboard backing on top of that to finish and hold garter secure.
