Bird Cage Veil

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2011

To create the veil template, cut a piece of kraft paper to 24 by 12 inches. Measure up 5 inches on each end, and cut the corners at a roughly 45-degree angle (the longest side becomes the bottom of the veil).

Tools and Supplies:



1. Lay the fabric over the template and cut out. Follow the natural line of the netting's design to ensure an attractive edge.

2. Run a needle and thread through the top edge of the veil with a simple basting stitch, gathering the material and sewing it to the comb.

3. Glue a tuxedo bow to the comb so it covers the area where the mesh was sewn.
