tank top re-do

i was about to throw out an old tank top when i remembered a diy project i saw on ps i made this, a hand-made headband that called for scraps of material and lace. i changed the materials a bit, using a store-bought plastic headband instead of ribbon:
i wrapped long, thin strips of fabric around the plastic headband, using super glue to attach the fabric to the headband, a few drops every other wraparound. then i used thread to seal the ends. i created the base flower out of a long strip of lace (from the bottom of the obviously outdated tank), sewn together like an accordion

i used different-sized scraps of material to make little rosettes, which i sewed onto the base "flower"
i sewed the base onto the wrapped headband. done!
