I recently took on the project of making my own veil and boy am I glad. It turned out to be quite a bit simpler than I expected and the end result turned out great! Since a lot of these DIY posts show the hard work of fellow bees but don’t necessarily give instructions on how to achieve the same results, I thought I’d share the steps I followed for mine.
First, some tips. All tulle is not created equal, but it’s all crazy cheap. I didn’t want a super crunchy veil, so I shopped around and fondled at least 12 different bolts of fabric until I found one that felt delicate enough. Most were the same price, but there were obvious differences in quality.
The tools required for this project are really basic, but it’s incredibly important that you have a nice pair of fabric scissors. I can’t stress this enough – the junk-drawer pair from Office Depot will leave you frustrated and your veil frayed. Aside from that, you need some thread, a measuring tape, a large clean surface to work on, and a comb or headband to attach your veil to.
