Project Instructions

Step: 1

Make about 12 double points - use 4 inch pieces - layer green 1 ½ inch ribbon for base of points with 1 inch white ribbon centered over each point. Staple each point twice to make it secure and then staple to backing circle, spacing evenly around the circle.


Step: 2

Prepare flower and attach to the backing 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 ½ so that the right side of the ribbon still shows on both sides (the top will form a point). Then staple the points onto a second cardboard backing circle in 2 rows of 3 double streamers.


Step: 4

Buy or make a braid in green and white with a white bow at the bottom. Staple into mum.


Step: 5

Add black sticker letters to several green streamers that say
“Best Teacher”
“Homecoming 04”
“Name”


Step: 6

Hot glue a large 3D green star onto the flower.


Step: 7

Add the following with staples or hot glue
8 ½ inch white ribbon streamers
Green star, football and helmet garland
Silver metallic garland with large hearts and stars and small hearts and stars


Step: 8

Write message as shown on large silver hearts and stars with a sharpie marker.


Step: 9

Hot glue or tie the following embellishments as shown
3 metallic green footballs
Green and black horseshoe - “Go team Go”
Large green and black “Homecoming” Football
Green cowbell


Step: 10

Make a white hanger loop with 1 ½ inch white ribbon 6 inch long. Staple to the top of the streamer backing circle.


Step: 11

Hot glue the backing with the points and flower to the backing with the streamers.
If you’re making a corsage, finish it by hot gluing the third cardboard backing circle to the back.


Step: 12

If you’re making a garter, hot glue a white garter onto the back of the cardboard backing that the streamers are attached to. When cool, hot glue another cardboard backing on top of that to finish and hold secure.
