Poinsettia Headband

I went to a Christmas party on Friday night. And, I wanted something festive to wear. I wore a green sweater (because of course my clothing must color-coordinate with the Christmas theme!) and decided to make myself a festive poinsettia headpiece.  (Note:  I'm obviously not wearing a green sweater in the below picture. You think I had time to make a headband AND photograph it right before the party?)

And yes, I did make it right before the party.  Like, the babysitter is arriving and I'm still hot-gluing.

I pretty much made it up as I went, comparing it occasionally to the poinsettia plant my sweet friend gave me for my birthday.  I wanted the middle to be authentic (because that's how I roll) and have the tiny yellow flowers that real poinsettias have amongst their red and green leaves.  But, I didn't have any yellow beads.  So, dear readers, you know what I used?  I used a pair of pliers to cut the heads off of some of my sewing pins and then I hot glued them to the flower.  Yep.  I'm a little nuts.  But, hey, they look cute, right?  Mission accomplished.

How cute are you? I can't get headbands to look that awesome on me. Something about the shape of my head, I guess.
