During the wedding planning, I started seeing several DIY tutorials for making your own veil and I decided to try it out. I mostly following this Style Me Pretty tutorial.
Even though the tutorial says no sewing required, I sewed all 4 corners of the veil and tacked down the top of the lace. I didn't want it falling apart on my wedding day.
Step One: I purchased 54" tulle from Hobby Lobby. I think it cost about $3. I wanted a chapel length veil, which is usually 90". I ordered 100" of tulle in case I made a mistake while cutting
Step Two: I cut the tulle in an oval shape to 90"
Step Three: I pinned the lace onto the tulle. I purchased my lace on Etsy. I had a difficult time pinning the lace around the corners on the tulle, so I had my mom come over and pin it for me.
Step Four: I sewed the corners of the veil using a whip stitch. I used white thread and it wasn't visible at all.
Step Five: I used spray adhesive to attach the lace to the tulle
Step Six: After the spray adhesive had dried, I practice walking around with the veil to see if any of the lace would come loose. It came loose in several spots, so I tacked down the lace in a few spots.
Step Seven: I added the comb to the very top of the veil because I didn't want a blusher.
Step Eight: Wear on your wedding day!
