details that can add a lot of style to your wedding. When it comes to taking photographs your photos will look extra special.

How to Make a Cheap Flower Girl Basket
Below are step-by-step instructions how to make this easy and very inexpensive flower girl basket.
Things You Need:
- A small basket with a handle that's easy to carry and stands up when placed on the ground.
- Wired ribbon. One to complement your flowers or the bridesmaids' dresses. Wired ribbon is better because it holds its shape.
- Flower petals.

colored fresh Rose petals, artificial petals or confetti, for example.
Instructions for Making a Flower Girl Basket

white basket with ribbon to match your bridesmaids' dresses, or you can
use a natural colored basket and wind some pearls on a string and glue
them around the handle with the ribbon to make it extra pretty.
