Several college football teams have black and gold as their team colors, as do many, many high schools. Here are a few poly mesh ribbon ideas along with some ornaments perfect for creating team color arrangements.
Black - Gold - Black
poly mesh netting style ribbon on rolls of 30 feet and 21" wide are great for wreath making, draping around tables, making swags for corners of tables etc. Some
other styles of ribbon to go with this include solid black mesh
ribbon and gold
; Poly Deco Flex Tubing in gold or black color.
Typically, one roll of the 21" by 10 yd mesh netting will create one 24" wreath, but it all depends on the size of your "poofs" bunches that you use. Sometimes it good to start with a roll of one color and do your basic wreath; then go back and add a different color, size or texture to give it more dimension or a pop of color. Wreaths can be created started with two different colors and going around the wreath form at one time, or go around with one color and when you're finished with that, go back with the second color. We have listings for
several different video that explain how to create a wreath using the Work Wreath
