Whether or not it would be hard to make depends on your skills.

I’m a decent seamstress, but I hate hate HATE sewing netting and sheer fabric on my machine – and I’m too impatient to edge an entire veil by hand.  I ended up buying my veil online from http://www.wedding-veil.com

You have a bit of time before your wedding; if you’re patient and you have some experience with a needle and thread, I would think that you could manage.  Do you have an inspiration picture?

Raw-edged veils are by far the easiest to DIY, because of what the PP said about having to sew on tulle and net.

I also wanted a lace-edged cathedral veil. We ended up semi-DIY’ing it: I got two ready-made veils from Light In The Box and we put them together to get the look we were aiming for. (I started a thread about it here.) I found that the best veils on their website were still affordable and quite good quality (although the lower-priced ones were not so awesome). Maybe you could go that route?

Did the flyer at Hobby Lobby promote a class or products to DIY the veil? If you have step-by-step instructions that will eliminate one part of the difficulties.

Here is a link to a Bee who made a lace and pearl timmed veil: http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/diy-2-tier-veil  (She says she glued on the trim, carefully!)  If you are looking for a thicker lace, like hers, that would be a less time consuming option.
