Question How to make Flowers stay on Headbands

I want to start making tutus and headbands. I made a few headbands for my daughter by gluing a felt circle and alligator clip to the flower. My daughter is 18mnths old and pulls it apart in seconds once she gets a hold of it. I think this would be awful to sell someone a headband for their child to rip it apart so quickly. Is this just how it is? or is there some other glue or technique I should be doing?? I appreciate your help.

Default Re: How to make Flowers stay on Headbands

Are you doing interchangeable headbands? That's the only time I ally clip my flowers with headbands.

Normally I stack my petals however I am constructing my flowers and then glue that down to a felt base. I make a matching base and glue that to the inside of the headband as I'm gluing down my flower and then I sew through both on the machine for extra security. Haven't had any get dismantled yet that I know of!
