Project Instructions

Step: 1

Make about 16 triple points - Layer lighter blue 1 ½ inch ribbon for base of point, with ½ inch darker blue ribbon on tips of points and ¼ inch white ribbon stripe down center of each. Staple each point twice so it doesn’t slide and then staple to backing spacing evenly around 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 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 3 double streamers, overlapping slightly.


Step: 4

Make a Homecoming loop streamer - layer the 6 inch pieces of 1 ½ inch wide blue ribbon with silver stripe on sides on top of the 2 inch wide lighter blue 6 inch pieces and fold over to form loop. Staple loops onto the 1 yard piece of the lighter blue and add silver sticker letters to say Homecoming. Staple into your mum.


Step: 5

Add the following with staples or hot glue
Silver heart garland - looped
4 wide silver metal mesh ribbons
12 assorted printed ribbons in coordinating in blues, whites and silver
6 to 8 pieces of Silver curling ribbon


Step: 6

Make round braid with 2 pieces of printed ribbon and staple into the mum.


Step: 7

Hot glue or tie the following embellishments as shown
Sheer blue ½ inch ribbon 6 loop bow
2 small blue rhinestone hearts on feet of bear
Silver wishbone
10 flat trinkets hot glued on ribbon
3 heart picks - silver glitter look
Small white teddy bear
Silver football
Blue and silver #1


Step: 8

Make a blue ribbon hanger loop. Staple well to top of streamer backing circle.


Step: 9

Hot glue the streamer back to the flower/point back. Then hot glue the 3rd backing circle to the back of that to cover up all of the staple ends.
