Question The best glue for flowers and headbands??

I'm not good at sewing! I'm making flower headbands now and I was wondering whats the best glue? Glue gun etc? I fear that a glue gun will be very messy and that it wont work good, And I dont want to sell something to someone and it fall apart when they use it. So advice please on glueing, when custom sizing headbands can I use glue on them too? Thanks ahead of time!

Why type of material are you using for your headbands? FOE, elastic bands, nylon? I have different methods for different materials. Some I sew, others I will use fabric-tac or glue gun. You kind of have to play around with what you have and create your own method of doing things. I tend to use my glue gun the most though. Hth

Fold over elastic and the skinny elastic.

This is a good tut for foe:

For skinny I do one of two things. Either just overlap the edges 1/4" with some fabric tac and pinch it until dry or I put two dabs of hot glue on a felt circle, lay the edges on that and then put hot glue over everything and smoosh the flower onto the circle so the elastic is sandwiched inbetween the felt circle and the flower.

No sewing at all!

If you don't want to sew the foe bands you can use fabric-tac for both of those styles. I cut the bands to size, heat seal a bit and use the fabric-tac to glue them. I use a those really strong paper clips that have the metal flaps to pinch them open to clamp them down tightly while they dry. Once there ready, I just add my flowers and use my glue gun to attach the flowers to the bands and use a felt circle to glue to the inside of the headband for extra hold and comfort.

There's a ton of help on here, use the search link, chances are 5 other people have already asked what your wondering. Hope I didn't confuse you even more...lol
