If you have ever spent any time in north Texas you know that high school football is king. Homecoming is especially insane. Since this is my son's senior year I went a little nuts on the Mum and Garter. These are my first homemade mum and garter. I started off with a pile of supplies along with some specialty premade ribbon. The kids gave me permission to go overboard!

These are what I came up with. The school mascot is wolves but my son wanted panda an penguin centers instead. I even added some candy for them to munch on!

It is attached to a beauty pagent style sash. Originally I wanted the sash just for appearances. Turns out that these mums are extremely heavy. The sash makes it much easier to wear and will not stretch out her shirt by being pinned to it.

This is my son's garter. I was really worried about it being too heavy to wear on his arm but I used lots and lots of glue and staples to attach it to a special garter that (hopefully) will stay on his sleeve better.

I laugh cause I'm from jersey and the only mum I've know is the ones you see in the yard during fall, lol.

I made one for a co-worker's daughter last year, actually made the garter and it was gaudy and alot of fun to make....
