DIY Birdcage Veil Tutorial

Birdcage veils are simple, elegant, and a fantastic option as opposed to traditional veils as they lack the length and the weight of them. Unfortunately many veils can cost hundreds of dollars and the ones available not be exactly what a bride is looking for. Should a bride request a custom order, it could take several weeks for it to arrive making it impossible to get one on short notice! Thankfully, determined brides with a crafty mind may find a DIY birdcage veil a more apt solution.

What You Will Need For This DIY Birdcage Veil Tutorial

DIY Birdcage Veil Tutorial

1. Take your material that you are making your birdcage veil from and lay it out. You will have to cut your material down to around the size that will cover your face, so play around with it a bit. Remember, the wider the material you use, the more of your face it will cover so keep that in mind!

2. Cut the length of your veil now. Here, a 12″ piece of material was used, but you can use more or less depending on the size you want and how it fits around your face.

3. Make diagonal cuts up on either side of the veil. These were started at around eight inches on either side and were done on the unfinished edge.



4. After you have finished cutting your diagonal pieces off, you can begin sewing. Begin by tying a knot so that your thread is secured to your netting. Now, begin weaving the thread throughout every tiny square around the edge. Take your time and make sure to get each one so that you don’t have any random ones left out.

5. Now that your material is threaded together, begin to sew the gathered side to your comb. Don’t worry about it being a bit unattractive here, because here is where your accessory will be placed to cover it up.

6. Next, use your extra thread to sew on your accessory. Feathers, lace decal, or even flowers are a perfect way to hide the joining between the comb and the netting. Once it is secured, your DIY birdcage veil is complete!
