We suggest that you make at least 5 flowers and attach to headband.

Begin with Ch 46
Row 1: dc in 6th st from hook (acts as first v-s0, *skip 1 st, v-stitch in next st*. Repeat from * to * to end 21 v-stitches.
In the next row you are going to form the petals in the ch 2 spaces of the v-stitches.
Row 2: ch 2 ,turn. In the ch2 of v-st: dc, ch1, (tc, ch1) 3 times, dc, ch2, sl.st. *In the next ch2 space of v-st: sl. st., ch2, dc, ch 1, (tc, ch1) 3 times, dc, ch2, sl.st. Repeat from * to * to last v-stitch. In last v-st form a small petal: sl.st., ch2, 3 dc, ch2, sl.st.
Fasten off and cut at least a 12” tail. You should have 21 petals.
As shown in this video tutorial: Starting at the last and smallest petal made, roll up your flower keeping everything as even as possible. Make sure the base is fairly flat.
As shown in the tutorial below, use the remainder of the tail to secure your flower at the base by stitching through the trellis of the headband.
