A sweet little dress is more than enough to outfit your flower girl. But add a pretty accessory like a flower headband, a classic flower pomander (that’s a flower ball with a ribbon!), or even a ribbon wand, and you’ll have some serious cuteness on your hands. These six DIY flower girl accessory projects are pretty and simple — tutorials below!

Worried about a fragile floral crown for the kids in your wedding? Make a sturdy faux flower headband with a strip of elastic, a bouquet of silk flowers in whichever colour you like and hot glue. Here’s the tutorial. (Adorable flower child not included!)

Or, find one already ready to go on Etsy!

Ribbon Wands

Instead of the traditional petal toss, make your own streamer wands for flower girls and ring bearers to wave around as they walk in and out of the ceremony. Follow this guide to create your own with dowel rods and ribbons. Tip: make a bunch of wands and have your guests wave them for a whimsical ceremony exit.

Or find them already made here at Etsy.
