Default How do you attach a flower to stretch lace?

The obvious answer is hot glue, but I'm thinking it will look icky on the other side. HELP! Sorry, I'm new to this. LOL

Put a felt circle on the back of the lace, where the flower is attached, to cover the glue.

THIS!!!! or turn your flower into a clip and add a strap to your stretch lace. Then it becomes versatile.

I cut felt to add to the back. It makes it look nice and clean. Also soft on the head.

What everyone else said! So, the headband, be it lace, skinny elastic, foe, whatever is sandwiched between the back of the flower and the felt circle.
Cut the felt large enough to cover the area needed by smaller than the flower so it won't show.
