Flower Girl: Fashion Inspiration and DIY Crafts

I might be biased since they are my namesake, but I love flowers. But, who doesn't? This sunny weather has me itching for floral everything - on my clothes and in my crafts. Here are some flowery fashion inspirations and DIY projects.

floral halter dress

My newest retro floral halter dress - all I need are some victory rolls and I'm ready for a pin-up summer.

This paper punch flowers tutorial made me run out to Hobby Lobby and buy a paper punch! How have I gone this long without one?!

how-to make felt flowers

Although it is a little pricey for an online tutorial, these beautiful felt flowers seem worth every penny. I would love to see them on a cardigan, a headband or hair clip, glued to a pony and worn with a little bun, attached to your purse, anything! Mmmm, cute.

Crochet Mollie flowers are one of my favorite little things. I get obsessed and make dozens of them, but I haven't done anything with them yet..

My hunny bunny Kelly-Anne's DIY Floral Crown tutorial on Tiny Tangerines is classic. How pretty is she, by the way?

yankee candle lavender vanilla
I've been going through a Yankee Candle craze lately (another Instagram influence?) and bought quite a few little votive candles when they were on sale for a dollar. This was my favorite! Yum yum, I just love lavender.
