Quick Felt Flower Headband

I'm loving little felt crafts these days.  It's easier to pull out a sheet of felt, a glue gun and some scissors into my limited space, than to get all the tools and supplies for other projects (including cards and scrapbooking)

For these flowers, I cut 3 circles from white felt.  I didn't measure, but the 2 smaller ones were about 3 inches across, and the bigger one was about 3.5 inches.  I cut each circle in a spiral pattern until I reached the middle.  Starting with the middle, I wrapped the felt around itself until it looked like this.  

A little hot glue secured the end and I sewed a fake pearl into the middle of each one using invisible thread.  
For backing each flower, I cut a small circle of felt and glued it to the bottom.  
I grabbed a black fabric headband and hot glued each flower to it. I should have glued them closer together so they would be overlapping.  That way when the headband stretches a little, they are still touching.  You should scroll quickly past the next photo, because I look truly dorky.  I just felt the post wouldn't be complete without the obligatory "here--look at me wearing my creation" picture.

I think I'll go hide now.
