Just some final - I think - mum photos so y'all can see how they look. They are all pretty much variations on the same idea just using different ribbons.  (I was in a rush so I apologize for not-so-great photos.)

My mums just barely touch the surface of all the things you can do with your mum.

There are so many fabulous ribbons and decorations out there that as long as you don't mind the cost, your mums can be as over-the-top as you want!

At my daughter's mum exchange many of the mums were so fabulous that I wanted one!

I still like the braided ribbons and I used the tiger/zebra striped ribbon to make a looped ribbon this year (just like the "homecoming" one from last year but without the letters!)

I added some sparkly tulle between the points and the flower to give it a bit more substance.

Completed mini-mum.

I layered grosgrain ribbon on top of "typical" mum ribbon. The black mum is going to have a smaller white mum in the center so the cheerleader doesn't disappear!

Please see some of my other posts for some how-to's! (August and September 2011 and September 2012)
