What you will need:

- 1/2 yard of Russian netting
- metal or plastic comb
- needle and thread
- silk flower (optional)


Making your own birdcage veil headpiece is one of the cheapest DIY projects you can do! For less than 10 dollars and one hour, you will have your very own veil. Birdcage veil dimensions can vary from 8″ to 18″ long, depending if you would like to cover your entire face or just below the nose. Choose your desired dimension and sew each end onto a comb. Attach silk flower to either end of the veil and you’re done! If you’re making a traditional birdcage veil, cut a large rectangle (about 12″x”18″) piece of Russian netting and play up the shape before sewing onto a comb.
