Sequined Flower Girl Cardigan
Offer your flower girl a bit of playful bling by attaching a border of sequin trim to her sweater. Use fabric glue, which will ensure that the sparklers stay put even in the washing machine.

There's nothing more joyful than flower girls skipping down the aisle, bearing beribboned wands that flutter and fall. We wrapped a dowel in ribbon, thumbtacked on ribbons of various lengths, and finished off by gluing on confetti flowers.

This adorable pinafore made out of table linens has a pocket to hold flower petals for sprinkling down the aisle. It is sure to make any flower girl feel special.

Bells of the Ball

Pleated Flower Girl Collar
Dress up an adorable outfit with this cute pleated collar. All you need is pleated fabric, needle and thread, and a ribbon for a finishing touch. For this project, we asked Harry’s Pleating & Stitch (212-268-1378) to make 3⁄4" mushroom pleats on a 6"-by-18" piece of muslin and finish with a bay hem on the fold.
Affix flapper-worthy fringe fast onto a plain white dress without a stitch. Iron the fringe trim onto the inside of the dress's hem using fusible webbing, and then add a matching slim ribbon a few inches above the hem for extra oomph.
Painted Toe Flower Girl Flats
Top off your flower girl's shoes with a flash of leather paint that matches your wedding color palette. Pro tip: A strip of tape helps you color inside the lines.
Flower Girl Sash
If you're handy with a sewing machine, buy fabric and make a stylish belt for your littlest attendant. You could even choose a print that's fit to repeat in details like the guys' neckwear, the ring pillow, the cake topper, or just use a color that matches your color palette. Not big on the needle and thread? Get the custom items from Etsy vendor Pomp & Ceremony.
Fabric, $36.50, PurlSoho.com.
Flower Girl Floral Ribbon Crown
This adorable faux flower crown is no-sew and can be made in a flash to add a finishing flourish to the littlest lady in your bridal party.
Butterfly Dresses for Flower Girls
Flower girls look enchanting with butterflies fluttering on their dresses. The appliques are easy to attach with a needle and thread. Ribbons streaming from their bouquets are decorated with the same butterflies, which appear to fly through the air when the girls walk.
Flower Girl Basket
This basket of pink roses makes the flower girl's job easy and pretty.
A pouch folded from colorful paper is a pretty alternative to a traditional basket; add a ribbon handle and bow, and it's ready for the flower girl's important role.
For a playful way to distinguish the flower girls' dresses from the bridesmaids', sew a premade ribbon flower to the skirt of each dress (preferably ones with little or no adornments); these store-bought daffodils are made of wired ribbon. Then form stems and leaves from 3/8- and 7/8-inch-wide green grosgrain ribbons.
Paper Cone for Flower Girls
Instead of a traditional flower-girl basket, why not try a paper cone? Besides being inexpensive, it can be tailored to complement the flowers or your littlest attendant's dress.
This sweet flower-girl accessory is a wonderful option for a youngster who may not be ready to sprinkle petals from a basket.
Autumnal Flower Girl Basket
As a fitting nod to the season, substitute dried leaves for petals in your flower girl's basket. If fall foliage isn't abundant when you wed, you can order pressed leaves online.
We lined this pint-size basket with a cotton fabric. Using scissors, cut a large round of fabric and a slit on opposite sides to accommodate handles, then place in basket. Wrap silk ribbon around, and tie in a bow.
Cardigan with Cute Buttons
Customize a flower girl's sweater—and match it to your palette—by replacing the buttons with new or antique ones in winsome colors or shapes.
Ribbon Pomander Ball
To make a flower girl pomander, wrap a 3-inch ball of floral foam with two 18-inch pieces of 22-gauge floral wire, crisscrossing to divide ball into quarters; twist ends together, and curl into a 1-inch loop. Soak foam in water. Cut flower stems to 1 1/2 inches. Insert two rows of colored roses around ball, then add cream or white roses to fill. For handle, tie an 18-inch length of ribbon to loop.
Flower Girl Dress and Basket
A vintage striped linen-silk band makes a neat sash for the flower girl's simple white dress. Wide satin ribbons tied around her feet at the arch dress up simple ballerina shoes, while a small fabric flower pinned to her hair continues the theme. Complete her outfit with a basic Nantucket basket that's spruced up with a ribbon fringe and handle—perfect for holding her petals.
