  • Step 2:Cut the flowers off their stems. Glue the larger flowers to both sides of the headband.
  • Step 3:Cut an 8 inch piece of tulle. Gather the tulle at one end. Wrap the end with a piece of red ribbon and glue. Glue this to the back of the leaves.
  • Step 4:Glue the velvet flowers along the top of the headband, in front of the leaves.
  • Step 5:Cut two pieces of each color ribbon to 26 inches long. Join one set together, line up the ends and tie a knot in the center of the ribbons. Glue the knot under the bottom flower on the headband. Repeat with the remaining ribbons on the other side.


  • TIP 1:Headband not the right color? Try wrapping it with narrow satin ribbon and secure with glue at both ends.
