Mums and Garters

This week is Homecoming game for Frenship football. In Texas we celebrate the Homecoming game with a tradition with mums and garters. The girls wear mums and boys wear garters. Boys usually ask a girl to homecoming game and boys will present the mum to the girl and girl will present the boy with a garter on homecoming day.
They wear them all day at school and than to the football game.
Teachers love them so much they have the kids tape the bells. Can you imagine thousands of kids walking around with bells ringing all day. I don't blame the teachers one bit. 
I made a few for my friends son and daughters.
Here is a garter for a special boy. He will wear it on his arm:

Here a few I made for the girls. and they will pin mum on their shirt:
