Supplies to make your own veil with blusher and comb.
(Part of the How to Make a Veil series) by

Before you begin making your veil you will want to be sure you have all the supplies on hand so you won't be running back and forth to the store or waiting for something to arrive from an online purchase.

In this series, I explain how to make your own veil with a blusher and a comb attached. Here's what you will need for that:

  • Material, which is called tulle, netting, or Bridal Illusion (Tip: Buy tulle by the bolt or roll here.)
  • Paper to make a pattern. Any large paper will do (such as wrapping paper)
  • Non-porous surface to work with glue on, such as a glass cutting board
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Toothpicks or straight pins to apply glue
  • Fabric glue. (Note: Aleene's Fabric Fusion dries clear and has a firm hold, and dry cleanable.
  • Plastic veil comb
  • Quilting or craft needle
  • Heavy-duty thread the same color as your veil
  • Tape measure
  • Straight pins
  • Embellishments such as beads, crystals, pearls, sequins, flowers, or other decoration (optional)
  • Edging or trim (optional)
