Project Instructions

Step: 1

Make about 16 points - half of the points 1 ½ inch red metallic mesh ribbon and the other half of the points - white 1 ½ inch ribbon with a ½ inch blue with silver edge ribbon on top. Staple each point twice to secure and staple to a cardboard backing circle alternating colors and 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 form 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 - fold 6 inch pieces of 1 ½ inch wide white ribbon in ½ and staple to form loops. Staple onto the 1 yard piece of 1 ½ inch white ribbon overlapping starting at the bottom and overlapping slightly to cover staples. Add 1 red glitter sticker letter to each loop to spell Homecoming. Add a blue and silver bow at the top with a red cowbell and a blue and silver “#1” and add a silver horseshoe at the bottom.


Step: 5

Make a skirt on the bear with the ½ inch blue, red and silver ribbon. Hot glue the bear onto the flower. Add a red bow on 1 ear, a blue and white pom pom in 1 hand and a blue megaphone in the other. Stick a red sticker star on the megaphone. Glue some small red rhinestones on ears for earrings.


Step: 6

On the flower, add a 3D silver star, a 3D blue and red football, and some rhinestone heart picks as shown.

Step: 8

Hot glue or tie the following embellishments as shown
Small round mirrors and bows (red and blue) alternating on a red streamer
Several 3D silver stars
Several assorted sizes of red metallic football helmets


Step: 9

Make a loop of 6 inch piece of blue 1 ½ inch ribbon - fold in ½ and staple well to top of the backing circle with the streamers.
