TIME PER GARLAND:

This obviously varies depending on whether you use a Cricut machine or a stanley knife but when I used the Cricut machine it took me less than an hour to make a 2 metre garland.

FEATHERS PER GARLAND:

For one 2 metre garland I used 42 feathers, but you could vary these depending on how close you space them on the cotton.

Upload the feather templates to the Cricut Design Space and set the machine to cut them out, swapping the colours of card as you go. Alternatively print the designs onto card and cut them out by hand or with an exacto knife.

HERE’S HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN UNIQUE BIRDCAGE VEIL (WITH MINIMAL SEWING EFFORT!)

HOW TO DIY BIRDCAGE VEIL WITH WEAR THE CANVAS BLOG (8)

You guys! I am so excited to share today’s DIY with you! Not least because it is brought to you by one of our favourite Instagrammers & bloggers Jené Sigl from Wear The Canvas. Sewing is not our strong point and we have wanted to broaden our skill set for a little while now, so when Jené offered to show us how to make this bold, one of a kind birdcage veil, we just had to share it with you too! It is insanely easy to make & needs minimal sewing effort, great for beginners like us! Enjoy!

You will need:

Netting or Tulle // Hair Comb Clip // Feathers // Ribbon // Needle and Thread // Scissors // Tape Measurer

HOW TO DIY BIRDCAGE VEIL WITH WEAR THE CANVAS BLOG (1)

Step 1:

Wrap the ribbon around the base of the hair comb, and sew into place.

Step 2:

Decide how long and wide you want the netting of your veil to be. You can do this by wrapping it around your head, or looking up common veil lengths. Keep in mind that the netting will be gathered to fit the comb. This means the length will be a tiny bit shorter with the gathers, and the wider the netting, the fuller the veil will be. Once you have decided what size you would like, cut your netting to those measurements. I decided to cut my netting 36” wide by 16” tall.

Step 3:

Fold your tulle in half so the two shorter sides are laying over one another. Use a measuring tape to create a diagonal shape on the top corners of your netting. Cut the corners at an angle using the measuring tape as a cutting line. When you are done cutting through both sides, unfold your fabric. You should now have a piece that looks like a rectangle with its two top corners cut off.

Step 4:

Starting at the bottom of one cut off corner, run a gathering stitch along the top edge of the fabric until you reach the bottom of the other cut of corner. Gather the netting so that it is the same size as your hair comb.
