Birdcage Veil Tutorial

Birdcage Veil Tutorial
To make this, you will need:
-Netting (I got mine in San Fran, and sadly I haven’t seen it at Hobby Lobby or JoAnns yet)
-A hair clip/ wire comb (a sturdy one)
-Feathers
-A rosette with decorative beads/pearls in the middle
-Glue gun
-Scrap felt
(Photo via here)

I used this little outline to cut my piece. I just eyeballed it, but I believe it was 1/2 yard.


Sewn up, this is what it looks like.


Sew on the felt. I shaped it to a heart, but when all was said and done, it looked more like a disfigured hot dog...


My little trinkets laid out..


(All sewn on the heart and ready to go!)


Now, hot glue the feathers on first and THEN your flower! On the backside, to make it look all nice, use white felt/ fabric and cut a little slit for the clip to fit through, then hot glue that to the back. It didn’t turn out like I thought it would, but I like it :)
