You might have to put some kind of stiff backing on the back of the lace to help it sit properly….but I think it’s worth a try!

Yes, this could be easily done. Be careful and go slowly. Get a yard of millinery netting at Joann Fabrics–it’s like $3.95/yd or something. I would probably just buy a premade headband with the lace if it’s not too expensive and attach the netting to a comb and have them separate.

Absolutely, go for it!! You’ll have way more flexibility to make it exactly what you want if you do it yourself!

For $6 worth of lace? Go for it! If it comes out bad then splurge on the one you want. I might not glue it on though. Maybe attach a piece of white tulle to the headband first and sew it to that (assuming a few hand stitches are within your DIY ability). I would probably use invisible thread. Glue might make the lace too stiff.

I would totally try to make that. Even if you fail, you’re only out a few bucks.

you can totally make this.   a birdcage veil is very easy to make.  see youtube for tutorials.  i made mine in less than 5 minutes.

as for the lace, put some stiff backer on it before attaching to a headband.  talk to some ladies at the fabric store.  they will know what will be best to use.
