Cut out a large circle of stiff cardboard or plastic. Glue a sturdy pin to the back of the circle, and allow the glue to dry completely.
Add loops of ribbon or tulle to the edge of the circle. Staple them in place, leaving the raw ends on the front of the circle. For an enhanced appearance, add multiple layers of ribbon. On the bottom of the circle, add numerous lengths of ribbon that hang down approximately three feet. Glue a piece of brightly colored card stock in your school's colors over the raw ends.
Glue or staple homecoming-related trinkets to the front of the circle. Consider adding school pennants, images of the school mascot, teddy bears, tiny sports equipment or small pom-poms. Add feathers, bells and any other decorative items that relate to your class or school.
Finish the homecoming mum by stapling on one or two chrysanthemum heads in your school colors.
