Hi!! It’s hard to explain something that is easier to show lol. But I use about 24” of small beads and glue them wrapping it around braid at corners to make it curve. If you are able to zoom into a picture of one of mine you can see it :)
And I bet you did awesome!!!
Love love love hearing that!!!!!
48” of each ribbon should be enough
Hello my friends! I will try to keep this post short but over the past few years there seems to have been more shaming of the Mum tradition and pushing students towards forgoing the almost 100 year tradition and donating funds. This effects me as a Mum Small Business Owner... Continue reading

Hi! I've had several people ask me about lights. I will work on a tutorial about that for next year. The only thing I do is glue each bulb where I want it and stuff the wire down into the flower to hide it.
Hi Jamie! I do think the ribbon might be the problem. I always use acetate and if I want to add another type like grosgrain I still use acetate under it to help hold shape. See if that works :)
Hi Amy! I usually do 4" or 5" strips depending on the ribbon for garter loops - Melissa :)

Hi Maggie! I get the wooden letters from michaels and hobby lobby. I have also ordered them on eBay for really good prices. Search for laser cut wood on eBay. Bear accessories I make most of them. Some items you can find at party city. Hope that helps!!
Yes they are unless you cover it with a another piece of ribbon which seems a little pointless to me. The loop should be sitting on a bed of ribbon when you put mum together so no one sees the back of the loop

Hi Tessy! Thank you for letting me know!! Trendy loops. Honestly it isn't something I can describe but I will make backer tutorial for next year!
I'm so glad they helped! Thank you!
Thank you Amanda! I am always happy to hear when my tutorials have helped!! You are so right - it gets very expensive going to the local craft store which is why we came up with our Melz Make Your Own Mum Kits packed full of stuff to save you money!! I've already had many people calling asking for items that the stores are already out of!!! Well I hope you enjoyed making your mum!!!
Yes! Our website is

Hi Diane! The number 5 ribbon is 7/8" wide but I do also use #3 ribbon too which is 5/8" wide. When using the smaller ribbon you have to weave a little tighter. To get the folds closer together when they are lined up next to each other make sure there is hardly any gap and it will tighten the braid. Hope that helps!
Hi Katie! The metallic ribbon above is called Mylar. I buy mine in bulk but you can purchase it from craft stores during mum season. If your store doesn't carry it try googling metallic Mylar ribbon to find a seller. I do offer it in my mum kits - it's amazing ribbon for braids!!
Diamondback braid is now posted!! :-)
SPIRIT BRAID I love this one!! So easy and looks amazing. Perfect to glue trinkets onto! Since this is a quick braid - let's see if we can make the tutorial as easy and quick!! On your mark, get set and GO!!! Supplies: There are two ways to make this... Continue reading
