We recently went to our friend Jenny’s Bachelorette party in Door County, WI. Since we aren’t in Wisconsin with (most of) the other bridesmaids we wanted to contribute to the party planning and make something for the big event. Jenny had mentioned that she loved the bachelorette party veils on Etsy but some of them cost as much as $60.00 which seemed silly considering it’s not something you would wear for even a full day!
Carli and I promised the girls we could make something similar for half the cost! We honestly didn’t know we were going to turn this into a blog post so my apologies for no step by step pics. But we really do love how it turned out and so did the bride!
This project requires no sewing and it’s literally SO EASY. If you’re planning a bachelorette party give it a try!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Beaded Headband
- White tulle- we purchased two yards to be safe
- Fabric scissors (Important!)
- Feather clip for decoration
You’re going to need to cut three equal pieces of tulle. The length doesn’t matter as much since you’ll trim it at the end. But they all have to be the same thickness. So cut the tulle into three equal parts.
Now you’re going to want to fold one piece of tulle in half so it’s two times thicker than one piece of tulle.
Next, fold your piece of tulle in half to create a loop on one end and two loose tails on the other.
Place the halved tulle strip under the headband so that only a couple inches of the loop stick out over the top. Then bring the loop around the top of the band and pull the loose ends through the loop. Here’s a helpful diagram we found on WikiHow).
Tighten the strand as much as you can. But it will still kind of billow out, which is the point. You want it to look puffy. Reference the above picture to see how each knot should look at the end.
Repeat step #4 with your other two strands of tulle.
Now you’re going to want to cut a tiny strip of tulle and loop it through each side of the knots you just created and tie that piece together to secure the two knots together. Repeat on the other side.
Lastly, take your feather clip and clip it to the middle tulle knot. You can also trim your tulle. We ended up doing that at the bachelorette party since we didn’t want to trim it beforehand and have it be too short!
We hope these instructions aren’t too confusing. We promise it’s really easy to make!
