All I want is a crochet headband with a flower. Thats it. How hard can that be, right?

I have searched this site and found lots of useful information once I figure out how to start making them.

Can someone help me? My store could be so tiny that they dont carry it...Idk.

I searched walmart and Michaels for the crochet bands...I cant find these anywhere. What dept might they be in?

The flowers that you put on them do these come from those big flowers on the stems? Are their special flowers not on the stems for stuff like this?

Where are some instructions for this? If I need to buy them from someone is there a headband making for dummies book? That is what I need I think. lol

Finally, what supplies would I need? I have a glue gun already.

I know these are basic questions, but I am feeling overwhelmed when I just wanted a band with a flower.

If there is a begin here, this is what you need to get started thread I missed it. Sorry.

Thanks for any help or advice.
I just went to walmart yesterday and found the crochet headbands...in the girls department...not infant, but big girl, the are on a rounder inside the clothes department...there were like 6-9 of them in a set for either $1.98 or $2.98....all different colors! I paid WAAAAAAAY more than that on eBay--so check out wally world...also, Michelle has instructions to make the flowers in the "how to make" section. I agree, when stressed...just buy one already made...which is exactly what I do! I joined this forum for inspriation--and found tons...so even if you buy the band to match her dress, take a deep breath, and sit down at your computer and check out the instructions on how to make bands for her--and you'll be amazed at what you can make...you'll be proud too when othere mom's say how cute she looks!!!
