-Hot glue gun

-Wire cutters (for cutting your fake flowers)
-Heavy gauge floral wire
-variety of fake flowers
-The flowers range from really small to medium (you don't want the flowers too big or you won't be able to see the wire Mickey Mouse-esque ears).
Step 2: Start With the Wire
When it comes to making this beaut of a headband you are going to want to start by cutting your wire. Depending on what size you bought the wire you can just cut it in the circle given (as shown) or if you have a bigger or smaller wire bundle you may need to shape it yourself.
Step 3: The Shape of the Ears
Make sure that when you shape it looks like a circle and the two ends are close enough together it will be easy to glue.
Step 4: Gluing
Take the hot glue gun and gently apply the glue to the metal causing them to bond together, connecting the two ends. Proceed to do it to both
Step 5: Applying the Ears
Glue the base of the circles and apply it the headband, do it to both.
Step 6: Flower Cutting
Cut the flowers at the base of the stem leaving just the flower bud itself.
Step 7: Flowers
Continue to do to all until you have a collection of flower buds that are ready to glue on to your headband.
Step 8: Applying
Apply the glue to the bottom of the flower and cover the bottom with the hot glue.
Step 9: The Beginning of the Headband
Attach the flower to the headband right at the base of where the metal rings meet the headband.

Step 12: Covering the Back
