Lay Out What You Want

1) lay down the mum base

2) Decide what you want on your mum

3) Decide the length you want your mum (the ribbons, beads, feathers) to be.
remeber the more you have on your mum the heavier it will be.

4) Decide how you want it it look

5) Make sure the ribbons do not cover the hole or else the stem of the flower will not go threw the hole. Hot glue ribbons and other ribbon like decorations to the mums base.
