Pretty please with some posies on top!

How could I resist?
I dare say, I could not!...

little Princess #2 was a flower girl last weekend...

and I just HAD to create something extra special
for her hair...
the colors chosen were bold, bright, & happy-
mixed with black & white...

I began with a plain headband,
wrapped it with black ribbon, (hot gluing as I went along)

on the top of the ribbon I glued a strip of
black & white rose sequin trim

I then hand stitched three raw silk roses-
gathering them into a ruffle, then sewing in a circular pattern-
for the centers I cut a small piece of silk and stitched down
with black sequins and beads for the centers...
for the leaves- I gathered a small piece of green French ribbon
and stitched to the rose...

to keep little Princess extra comfy...
when I glued the roses to the headband I backed them
with a round piece of felt...
(this also helped stabilize the rose on the headband)

Made with lots of love...
it just "topped" everything off perfectly!

Have a happy day!
