Violet Costume

If you can cut and glue felt, you can make this adorable flower. The top four petals attach to a headband, the bottom two to a ribbon that ties under your sweet blossom's chin. Bonus: The "leaves" are safety-pinned to the dress (translation: removable), so it can be worn again. Synergy alert: This pretty posy's name just happens to be Violet.
