Wedding headband that we forgot to wear :(

My cousin got married this weekend and August was wearing one of the Liberty of London dresses that my mom got her. She needed a little accessory to go with it so I decided to make her a headband.

I found this ginormous daisy at Michaels for $0.99

It was a little too big for Augie's head so I took it apart to remove some of the bottom petals. I had no idea it was so easy to get these things apart. Just pop of the center and you are good to go.
Next I took a piece of lace and fan folded it and then stitched through the pleated part a couple of times to hold it together.Do not cut the thread once you have stitched the lace. Thread the daisy petals onto the string through their center hole.
Take a couple of stitches through the petals to keep them stacked and centered. Then add a button to the center.

I then glued mine to a ribbon covered alligator clip but you could sew it directly onto a headband or onto a pin back.
Here she is in the dress. Notice no headband. She had it on when we were getting ready to leave and then she threw a major fit and ripped it off. In the rush of everyone getting ready I forgot it on the table so she ended up not wearing it. Boo :( I will try to get a picture of her in it later.
