Your Art Class Makes Homecoming Corsages


The idea of wearing a corsage to the homecoming football game or dance started at the University of Missouri, “Mizzou” in 1911. Then schools in Texas decided to do it and the homecoming chrysanthemum or “mum” corsage took off. Everything in Texas is bigger: the flowers, the bows, and the long ribbons. Of course you can make a corsage out of whatever you want. The main thing is to adorn it with ribbons and include your school colors, name, etc. I graduated from Ursuline Academy High school in New Orleans and our colors were blue and white. What is your homecoming corsage colors? Make them lighter or darker to show value. ​​​​​​​
