String pearls on to the elastic, You'll want to make sure that you add enough pearls that the headband looks full when stretched, but don't over do it so it is too full.
tie both ends of elastic together securely to form headband
If you are using mohair opposed to brushed suri, you'll want to double up strands to give the flower a little more girth
