Baby girls wearing headbands look so cute. I found that after Kate was born making headbands was about all I had time for in the realm of crafting. I could make one for her in about the same amount of time she napped.
Her newest headband is a gray chrysanthemum (spell that Gilbert!). I made it yesterday while we were snowed in.

To start off, a good pair of scissors is helpful. I love my Ginghers! I cut seventeen teardrop shapes and a two inch diameter circle out of a felt sheet that only cost ten cents!
I pinched each tear drop together at the base and hot glued them into petals. I used a ball point pen to help hold the glue until it set so that I wouldn’t burn my fingers. Then I glued eleven petals around the edge of the circle and filled the inside with the remaining six petals.
Finally, I hot glued elastic lace to the flower, and finished it off by adding a sparkly button that I had laying around.
