spring fever

beautiful weather just has a way of inspiring all kinds of fun spring themed projects.  here is my most recent endeavor - a festive flower headband for elise! 

in case you couldn't tell, she loves it!

to make your own, you'll need two or more silk flowers, a hair accessory of your choice (i.e. headband, hairband, barrette, you get the idea), and a needle and thread.  the first thing you will need to do is take the silk flowers apart, then you will start stitching your flowers layer by layer to the hair accessory with a simple X.  Keep in mind the more layers, the fuller the flower but harder to stitch.  for the very last flower, i did a running stitch through the petals and pulled my thread tight before tying it off.
