First you will need to cut away the excess netting around the flowers. You can separate the flowers if you wish.

Cut the FOE to the correct length for the size you are making. Take the felt circle and add glue to the centre. Attach the FOE as shown in the picture below. Be careful not to have a twist in the headband.

Take the shabby flowers and the other felt circle. Arrange the flowers as you would like them to sit and then glue them in place. You can also attach the bling button at this point.

Add glue to the back of the felt circle that is attached to the shabby flowers and then place the felt circle to top of the other felt circle sandwiching the FOE join between them.

Now you have a completed Shabby Flower FOE Headband.

Keep experimenting with different colour flowers, more flowers or different centres.
