Jeweled headband (Nordstrom knock-off)

 I saw the headband below at Nordstrom for $38 and thought to myself "I could make that myself."  So I did...and YOU can too!  It seriously only took me 10 minutes.

Black felt
Glue-on jewels
Hot glue gun/glue

I bought a big variety pack of clear jewels at Hobby Lobby, as well as a smaller variety pack of colored oval jewels.  I cut out a piece of black felt and arranged the jewels the way I wanted, leaving a space after the top jewel for the bow. (pictured below)
 I then used hot glue to secure the jewels to the felt, and once it had dried I cut around the outside of the jewels.

 I glued it onto the headband, aligning the top of the piece to the center of the headband.

 I then glued felt cut to the approximate shape on the back to secure the jewels in place.

I added a bow and I had myself a Nordstrom knock-off headband for less than $5!
