Insert hook into middle of heart, pull through, cut yarn and tighten.
With the hot glue gun, glue the back of the yarn and with your yarn, wrap the yarn around the headband, gluing it with every wrap.
Once completing the headband section. With the hearts, glue the back of the heart to the headband. Another route would be gluing felt to the back of the heart then attaching the hearts to the headband.
Press onto the heart until each one dries.
