Homecoming Part 5

Where my kids go to school, the seniors wear white and silver mums for homecoming, and the girls often add a color of their choice.  Although this year, my daughter has a boyfriend who got her a mum, I wanted to make one for her anyway.  I decided to add a little pink to it.  I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.  She liked it, too.
Here's a closeup of the three flowers.  There is a bear in the middle.  I put a tiara on her, although you can't really see it in the picture.  There are two pink hearts on the top right, a homecoming arch on the top left, and a senior start on the bottom.  I also used silver star garland.  I wish the backing showed up more because it's the part I thought I really did well on.

Here is the entire mum, complete with three foot ribbons in different patterns, colors, and styles, a boa, bells, trinkets, and curling ribbon.  It sort of looks gold, but there is no gold in it.  I guess it was just the lighting.  I wish it showed up better, but you get the general idea.  I had fun making this!
