Default need inspiration

I have an order for 12 matching headbands and one doll headband...the customer would like them all matching and they are for ages 4 thru 40. I don't want to attach a bow and call it done, but i also don't want to put some elaborate piece on a headband for a 4 yr. old that looks better on an adult. colors are black ribbon wrapped headbands and red w/ other options..not too christmasy but will be worn that morning and would like them to be somewhat versatile to also be worn on valentines day and other events.

i was thinking of using alli clips to make them more versatile also.

suggestions?

What about red flowers like the real touch hydrangea petals with pearl centers. I'd put that on my daughters and I'd wear it too. I have a pic I can show you how I make them on the thin metal headbands.

Another option might be tuxedo style bows, something like this:

My thought was some pretty little flowers, like the chiffon flowers someone on here makes (can't think of who, even though I ordered a bunch 2x lol) Black ones with small red rhinestones would be pretty, they would be good pretty much year round, especially for new years and valentines day. The flowers are smaller and not too big/poofy so it wouldn't be over-doing it for people not into the froofy stuff lol

Otherwise, what about a low profile tuxedo style bow with a rhinestone slider or red rhinestone in the center? I think the key here is simplicity so everyone (or pretty much everyone) will like it.

Hope this helps or at least inspires some ideas!

When you say "Matching" do you mean Identical or just that they are themed the same.

You can make them w/ similar flowers, but make more elaborate ones for the adults... Maybe a single singed flower with a little wisp of feather for the little ones and larger clusters with swooping feathers added for the adults?
