Default Ranunculus Headbands and Felt Question...

When you're making ranunculus or any flower headband for that matter, do most of you ladies use a small piece of felt glued onto the back of the flower and elastic in order to secure the headband and make it more durable? If so, do you use felt to match the flower or the elastic? I have some flowers that I'm having trouble finding felt colors to match.. Ex.) avocado rannies..

If you can't find a piece of felt to match the flower, match the headband. But becareful because I learned the hardway when adding a black felt piece to a singed yellow or white organza flower, or anyting transluscent the felt WILL peak through
good luck

Do you need the felt or can you glue the flower straight to a clip or the headband?

Yeah, I just cut out a circle of felt and attach it to the back. It helps it look better, but it's also soft against the head and more secure. I don't use regular craft store felt, I buy a wool blend and match it as best as I can. I don't match the shades, just the colour.

I glue the flower layer by layer on a lined clip. That way it can be put on different headbands, attached to a purse or clipped on flip flops. They stay on fine (and my 5 mo likes to pull at them)

For FOE I glue right onto the "loop" piece I cover the seam with. I haven't done much skinny elastic but I just used a piece of FOE as my backing & did it around the elastic - but made it wider - like a inch wide. Did that make any sense? Maybe I can take a pic!

Never have any felt around here, but have lots of fleece bits 'n pieces! So I started punching circles and toss them in a baggie; and the color doesn't bleed or rub off. Can always find something in there to match flower or headband.
