Day 7: Giant Flower Headband

Ahhhh...okay, so today I had a mad stroke of bad/good luck! Due to the fact that I am so horrifically behind on my yearbook spread, I got to take the newspaper camera for one night to go to a Magic tourney at the coffee shop down town. For those who don't know, Magic is a card game, which everyone used to play, but no one really does now. Not at my school, at least. So I've been going for the past x-amount of weeks, and I've only gotten pics of a total of 4 people from our school. Tonight is my last chance to get actual pictures of players, otherwise my spread won't be relevant enough to run in the book. But that drama aside, I got to take pictures with a nice camera again! Yay! I only had half an hour to make this headband, and I might replace the giant ass flower with something else later, but for now, I'm really happy with it.

First I took a headband with sequins and feathers all over it and removed all of those elements. It was one that a friend gave to me when I was a freshman four years ago.
Then, I measured the ribbon so that it would for sure fit onto the headband. I used two different types of ribbon, a really pretty silver one and the lace that I got from my last Goodwill haul.
I used liberal glue to attach the silver ribbon, but small amounts spread thin to attach the lace ribbon. I actually only attached it in three places.
Then I glued on the flower, which came off of a hat. It's quite large, I know.

Viola! Done.
