Everyone wants their wedding day to be absolutely perfect, from the dress to the venue, right down to the table settings. So why not have your accessories to be exactly what you’re looking for too? Instead of spending another small fortune on your veil, create your own to get your ensemble to match your imagination!
Fabrics & materials used:
- 1/2 yard 18″ Ivory Russian Veil Lace
- 1 8″-10″ White Ostrich Feather
- 1 Gold and Pearl Beaded Brooch with Pin
- Aleene’s Quick Dry Tacky Glue
Mood has a ton of different appliques, brooches, trims, and feathers – anything that you might want to include in your look. For today’s DIY, I went with a pearl brooch and a few strands from an ostrich feather. A couple drops of tacky glue kept the feathers in place perfectly.
The lace is equally easy to attach. I cut mine into a trapezoid, gathered it along the top three sides, and slid it into the brooch pin. You could also hand-stitch it a few times if you’d like, since the brooch is backed by some felt.
Birdcage veils look the best with an updo, so you can secure it to your hair with a few bobby pins! Are you going to be trying out this DIY? Tell me what you’re making in the comments!
