Flower Girl Accessories

Personalize your wedding party with these flower girl accessories you can make yourself.

Rose Embellishment

Artificial roses, made of silk or organza, look lovely when sewn to the back of a flower girl’s dress. We left the stems intact for a more casual look.

Basket of Petals

Decorate a white basket with lengths of ribbons around the handle and a large bow on one side.

Rose Pomander

Rose pomanders are popular accessories for young bridesmaids and flower girls. These adorable flower spheres complement a bride's and bridesmaids' dense, round rose bouquets.

Flower Girl's Satin Purse

Your flower girl will be delighted to carry this special purse filled with rose petals.

Hair Flowers

Whether you choose fresh or silk, adding flowers in the hair or to the bow of a dress is a lovely way to doll up a flower girl's attire. 

Tulle Pouf

Use tulle fabric or wide ribbon to create a hair ornament for a flower girl. Cinch a few folds of tulle with a sheer ribbon tied in a knot and embellish with a silk flower. Or arrange tulle ribbon into a bow for a similar effect.

Flower Girl Baskets

Fabric-covered tin buckets make lovely (and sturdy) carrying baskets for a flower girl.

Small Bouquet

A small nosegay that mimics the bride's bouquet can be a darling accent for a flower girl.

Flower Orb

Cover a plastic-foam ball with fresh (or silk) flowers and hang it from a looped ribbon so the flower girl can carry it as she walks down the aisle.

Ribbon Bracelets

Darling bracelets and necklaces fashioned from ribbon will make your flower girl feel especially pretty. We embellished ours with tiny blooms of silk flowers. Small, flat varieties will work best; sew them on so they remain secure.

A Crown of Flowers

Flower girls can look lovely with a simple headband of silk or fresh flowers in their hair.

Country Bouquet Holder

A ribbon handle added to this bouquet holder would make it an appropriate accessory for a flower girl. Fill the embellished wallpaper cone with rose petals.

Long-Stemmed Flowers

Rather than drop petals or flowerheads, have the flower girl pass out long-stemmed roses (with thorns removed) or other flowers to people seated along the aisle.

Flower Girl Basket from Vintage Hat

Create a unique petal holder for the flower girl by attaching a doily to a vintage lace hat.

Kissing Ball

Ribbon roses decorate a foam ball that's embellished with satin ribbons and pearl pins. 

Wedding Beaded Headpiece

Beaded wire garlands (from a craft or hobby store) can be quickly fashioned into a pretty bridal headpiece. Or make your own with our instructions.

Flower Cones

Flower cones can be the perfect lightweight accessory for your flower girls.

Floral Spray

Search fabric and craft stores for pre-made floral sprays like this one. These are easy to wire onto a chair, the back of a flower girl's dress, or even into a hair ornament.
