Continue with the rest of the colors… For this particular headband I used

18 leaf shapes.  It will depend on your headband size and leaf size.

DIY: Autumn Head Crown

Arrange a few leaves in the order you desire, keeping the leaf tips on top.

DIY: Autumn Head Crown

Start with one leaf and place it right under your presser foot. The elastic headband happens to be just the right width where it creates a channel for the presser foot!  .  Gently pull the headband and stitch half way down the leaf and stop.  Pulling the headband slightly will help keep some elasticity in the headband.

Place the next leaf on and continue stitching.  This ensures overlapping of the leaves.

Once you get to the end, just lay the last leaf on and backstitch between the first and last leaf.
