Here it is, in my hair! It's made from felt and beads and an elastic headband - all supplies available at WalMart. I searched online and printed out a few sizes of flower shapes, then traced them onto the felt, then cut them out. For this particular one, I cut out two 8-pointed flowers and one five-lobed flower. I layered them, then stitched through all three layers and added three beads in the center. I went through the beads a few times, to make sure they were secure.
Here's a close-up of the flower part. I've also made them in multiple colors, and with contrasting beads instead of coordinating beads. I used Scuncii brand elastic headbands for this project, because I found them on sale. This one is a stay-put style, with the sticky stuff on the back. I think that I'll get the regular ones next time, because they're a bit easier to put on.
This is a close-up of the back. Once the flower was assembled, I cut a small rectangle of felt from the same colour as the bottom flower. Then I stitched it along two sides, catching the headband in the middle. This lets the flower slide along the the headband, so you can reposition it easily.
I hope you enjoyed my headband! Check back on Friday for Karen's take on it!
