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.

    When you say, "Run a needle and thread through the top edge of the veil" do you mean, just the top edge? Or the entire perimeter (minus the longest edge which is the part that goes over the face)??
