I saw this on etsy for a very reasonable price.

Oh, that looks fairly easy enough to me. I did my own DIY birdcage veil using this tutorial! This is THE BEST ONE!



I highly recommend the steaming-I put mine in the bathroom and ran the shower and it worked great to soften up the Russian netting. I would assume after you make the birdcage you would simply attach the tulle to the comb. You can get the tulle at any craft store, and I know that Joanns has some with rhinestones-or you can just glue those on DIY style!

The netting can be found on etsy or if you have a Millenery store (hat making) or Mill Ned Fabric store they have it there. Etsy was where I got my russian netting. Do get the 9″ it was more expensive but way worth it instead of dealing with the hassle of cutting the 12″. And the trapezoid shape really helped!

IN putting on the veil everyone uses bobby pins to acheive the look they want-it never looks like it does in pics when you put it on your head. Its a downside of birdcages but they’re so cute that its (hopefully!) worth the hassle!

By The Way that looks like a singe comb style, not a bandeau. You make them completely different, the tutorial I gave you is for a single comb. Most tutorials are for bandeau style. Good luck!
