I've been coveting the cute flower headbands I see at Urban Outfitters, but was never willing to pony up the money for them. They're so expensive and I always thought I could make them on my own. When I went to the dollar store a few days ago, I realized just how right I was. I got everything I needed to make 5 or 6 of them for only 2 dollars (three if you want more than one type of flower). Talk about a deal.
I started with these. Kinda tacky, but they work without all the leaves. Buy a bunch of elastic headbands (I got a pack of eight) and you'll be good to go.
I made the headband in the first picture with the smaller flowers and this one with one bigger flower.

I think from the pictures, it's pretty clear that all I did was glue the elastic headbands onto the flowers. So easy! But if you want more detailed directions, you can check it out at the blog I write for: http://www.boredla.com/craftiness-is-next-to-godliness-pretty-for-pennies/
