Making a Flower Girl Basket?

Making a Flower Girl Basket Yourself? Take a Look at This One!

Weddings are very expensive occasions and costs can add up very quickly. So if you can save on bridal accessories that's great.

I am sure you have a wedding budget as all brides do.

A flower girl basket is one of those small details that can add a lot of style to your wedding. When it comes to taking photographs your photos will look extra special.

A flower girl is a must on your wedding day. (Your wedding accessories, so to speak.) A pretty little girl walking down the aisle scattering fragrant flower petals for you (the bride) to walk on, is a bride's dream.

Whether you have a classic wedding or the latest fashion wedding, a cheap flower girl basket is an easy and inexpensive way to add big style into your wedding.

Cheap flower girl baskets can be decorated with all sorts of things to make it look like you spent a fortune.

Making a flower girl basket yourself is definitely within your budget.

The advantages of making your own flower basket is it will cost a lot less than ordering one. You can have flowers and ribbon can coordinate with your flower girls dress or your bridal flowers.

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:

  1. A small basket with a handle that's easy to carry and stands up when placed on the ground.
  2. Wired ribbon. One to complement your flowers or the bridesmaids' dresses. Wired ribbon is better because it holds its shape.
  3. Flower petals. These ones are red Rose petals from my garden. You can choose different colored fresh Rose petals, artificial petals or confetti, for example.

Instructions for Making a Flower Girl Basket

  • Get your wired ribbon. Start at one end and wind it around the handle until you reach the other side.
  • With the ribbon you have sticking out at both ends, just cut each end in two, length ways, wrap it around the bottom of the handle opposite ways and tie a knot to stop it undoing.

  • Get your wired ribbon and fold it backwards and forwards so you have 4 loops on each side, as in the image. The length of the folded ribbon will depend how big you want your bow to be. I made this bow small because the basket is small.
  • Cut a length of the same ribbon and tie around the middle of the ribbon you just folded.

  • Tie the ribbon to the flower girl basket making a small bow to the inside of the basket and open the bow to make it look fuller. This is why it's better to use wired ribbon, because it holds its shape better.
  • Fill your basket with your desired petals.

Here is your finished flower girl basket idea. That wasn't too difficult, was it?

You can also use a 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.
