Learn how to make these Easy Organza Flower Accessories featuring our Peony Fabric Flowers from Gia of Fairytale Flowers and One Perfect Day.

Gia shows you how to turn her signature flowers into a Floral Crown, Wrist Corsage or Flower Headband. We think these are perfect for spring celebrations, dances, summer weddings and more! Take a look at Fairytale Flowers to see Gia’s beautiful approach to using fabric flowers in accessories. She’s based in Greece and has a lovely, artistic touch in all of her designs. You can also learn more about Gia in her introduction.

Floral Headband

What you will need:

  • Six organza flowers (Made from the tutorial found here.)
  • Ribbon of your choice at the length you desire

Once you have your peony flowers made, this is one of the easiest flower accessories you can make. Take your ribbon and find the exact middle of it. This will ensure that the ribbon on either side will be the same length and help you avoid any unhappy surprises later when you try to tie unequal ends.

Sew– or glue if you like– each flower to the ribbon, always making sure that they are centered in the middle of the ribbon.

This is what you should have when you’re finished. Your peony flower headband is ready!

Peony Flower Wrist Corsage

What you will need:

  • One peony flower (Made from the tutorial found here.)
  • Feathers in the color of your choice
  • Two leaves
  • Piece of lace
  • Ribbon of your choice (The ribbon used here is approximately 22 inches long.)

Gather the lace, making a small ruffle.

Find the center of your ribbon. This is where you will sew all your materials so that you end up with a centered corsage and equal length ribbon to tie into a pretty bow.

Sew your lace ruffle at the center of the ribbon.

Next sew on the feathers.

Prepare your leaves. Position them to your satisfaction and pin or sew them together.

Sew the flower and leaves together.

Sew the leaves and peony flower onto the rest of the corsage that you have already prepared.

This is what you will end up with. Your corsage is ready.

Girly Flower Headband

What you will need:

  • Two peony flowers (Made from the tutorial found here.)
  • Metal headband
  • Strong glue
  • Piece of felt or lace to back the flowers

Decide where you want the flowers to be on the finished headband. (Play around with them in the mirror until you find where you like them best.) Position the flower at the angle you like and glue to the metal band. If the adhesive you are using needs some time to dry, don’t hesitate to pin it down with a clothespin. Organza flowers look delicate and ethereal but they are quite hardy. Once the glue is dry and the clothespin removed, all you need to do is fluff the flower up with your fingers until it’s back to its original shape.

When the first flower has dried onto the headband, add the second flower close to the first. Glue it and pin it down until it dries.

When both flowers have dried on the headband, add some pretty lace or felt to the back of the flowers.
This has the dual purpose of making the flowers much more securely attached to the headband as well as making the back of the headband look neat.

Your peony flower headband is finished!
