It's time to access your wild side with our exclusive leopard mum flowers! We've got so many great ideas to complement these flowers that you'll be able to put into use for your next homecoming, and we've included everything you'll need: item lists, creative flourishes, and photos. But there's no time to waste with words! Let's see an example and how to make it!
If you want some great ideas you can use on all future mums, this is the place for them! See below for just a few:
The combined ribbon on the right uses two primary ribbon types and interweaves the #3 cheetah into the jute mesh. This allows the jute to be bunched together, giving it a nice 3-dimensional look. We then tied bows from the cheetah ribbon and added a rhinestone in the center and placed these along the length. Finally, a hand bow made from the same ribbon is added as an end cap.
As the name ribbons on either side of our mum will usually be the first thing people see on the body of the mum, we wanted to make sure it really dazzled. We did this by layering the acetate satin on top of a decorative backer made of burlap material and glitter stripes. We then cut #3 ribbon in half and made small bows, added rhinestones, and our large cheetah rhinestones for extra flair.
Below you'll find everything you need to make these mums - from ribbons, bears, rhinestones, and trinkets.
