Flower Girl Headband

Many bridal parties include a flower girl or flower girls. A fun way for a younger family member to be a part of the wedding. This flower girl headband is the perfect hair accessory for any young gal preceding the bride down the aisle, and you can customize it with your own wedding colors! The flower headband is would also work for any other dressy occasion … or just to wear to school on a Wednesday!

This project is part of Craft Lightning Week – this week my co-host Angie from The Country Chic Cottage, and our Guest Host, Katie from Sweet Rose Studio and I are 5 days of fast and easy wedding craft ideas, along with other crafters from around the internet. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to check out all their fast and easy wedding craft ideas!

Flower Girl Headband
To make the Flower Girl Headband, you’ll need:
Plain Headband
Wide Lace/Ribbon trim
Small Faux flowers (in wedding colors)
Faux Pearls or Rhinestones
Hot Glue Gun

supplies for flower girl headband


Start by gluing the ribbon trim to the headband, one section at a time so that the glue doesn’t cool before the ribbon is in place.

add line of glue

Gently pull the flowers off of the stems. We just need the petals for this part, so discard the rest.

Put a dab of hot glue on the back of one petal set. Put onto the headband. I find that the headband looks best when the flowers are placed asymmetrically (just on one side of the head), but use your own judgement.

glue on flower

Glue a pearl or rhinestone into the center of the flower.

add pearl

Repeat, adding multiple flowers with pearl or rhinestone centers.

Your flower girl headband is complete!
