Making your own wedding veil with a tiara and tulle can be simple, even without sewing. Before beginning your project, look through bridal magazines and find an "inspiration piece." This will help you focus your artistic efforts and ensure that the product is truly worthy of your special day.
Things You'll Need
- Hot glue gun
- Piece of tulle fabric, 1 x 2 yards
- Sewing machine (optional)
- Embellishments such as beads, silk flowers, rhinestones, lace (optional)
- Needle and thread (optional)
Making Your Tiara Veil
Pick a tiara that will most appropriately fit your bridal hairstyle.
Heat the glue gun.
Hold one edge of the tulle by the width (1-yard side). Make a half-inch fold along the edge and either sew a hem with a simple stitch on your sewing machine or apply 5 to 6 dabs of hot glue along the fabric's edge to create a hem.
Once the glue is cool and dry, apply a dab of hot glue on the two inside corners of the tiara. Attach the edges of the hemmed tulle to these points.
Apply a dab of glue at the apex of the tiara (center of the tiara's inside curve) and attach the middlemost point of tulle there.
Apply a dab of glue between the middle and the left end and attach the tulle to the tiara. Apply a dab of glue between the middle and the right end and attach the tulle. Repeat this process until you have adhered the hemmed edge of the tulle to the tiara, forming the appearance of many folds.
Embellishing the Veil
Using the scissors, trim the bottom of the veil to the desired length.
Slightly soften the edges of the veil by rounding them, or cut off the straight edge completely to form a curve.
Using a hot glue gun, sewing machine or needle and thread, apply your chosen embellishments to the edges of the tulle or throughout the tulle.
