Crocheted Flower Headbands

I've been on a bit of a knitting binge lately. First I made myself a truly enormous scarf, and then I made a hat for my friend (more on that one later). Recently I've been making decorative crocheted flowers. I originally intended to put them on knitted headbands/ear-warmers, but as they're a lot more fun and fast to make, I quickly had a lot of them. I made them by crocheting a circle and adding stitches to make a ruffled shape. I then crocheted embroidery floss in contrasting colors onto the edges to highlight the shape. I sewed buttons or beads into the center of the flowers, sewed them to pin backs or hairclips and attached them to headbands.
