DIY: Fabric Flower Headband

Do you recall the post on how to make fabric flowers?
 If you do, you may use them to apply them to a headband.  
If you are new here, and do not know how to make fabric flowers, 
click here to get the scoop.

You will need a simple headband and your choice of ribbon (optional)
 a glue gun
 fabric glue
 felt
(filigree is optional, you may use felt instead)
Gently and with tiny dots, use the fabric glue, not the glue gun, to glue the ribbon to the headband.
  Gently press it against the metal headband to make it flat and neat making sure there is no excess glue coming out.  This is used to cover the shiny metal on this band.  You also have the option of wrapping the ribbon around the headband. 
Wait for it to dry.
Now that your flowers are done and have been adhered to a piece of felt, you have the option of gluing the flower to the filigree base, or just use the felt already attached to the flower.
When that dries, hot glue the underside of another piece of felt,  to your headband as seen below on the right and press that felt against the other felt or filigree, to hold the flower in place. 
(Note: if you use felt, make sure it is the same size as your felt base.)

  Once that is dry, you are done.
Play with as many types of fabric flowers as you like, there are different variations;
 rosettes, sheer fabric flowers and even fabric lace flowers as seen above.
The lace flowers are glued one over the other,
 using a filigree metal to separate them and a small decorative pearl was glued on top to finish off the look.
