These six DIY flower girl accessory projects are pretty and simple — tutorials below!

Instead of the traditional petal toss, make your own streamer wands for flower girls and ring bearers to wave around as they walk in and out of the ceremony. Follow this guide to create your own with dowel rods and ribbons. Tip: make a bunch of wands and have your guests wave them for a whimsical ceremony exit.
