Step by step instructions:

1. Plug in your glue gun, and place all the items in front of you.

2. Add a little bit of glue onto your filigree and place the ribbon folded downwards onto the filigree. Place the ribbon about 1/4-inch away from the middle, and press the hot glue/ribbon area down with a scissor or other piece of metal - for a secure hold and not to burn yourself. Continue with this step (placing each time a little bit of glue in between each folded ribbon) until you come around to where you began.

3. If you have some ribbon left, cut the remaining piece off, but leave 1/2-inch for the last fold. Fold the ribbon downwards and glue it in place.

 5. Set the filigree aside. For the next step you need to turn the mum over and add a good amount of glue to it.
