Step 1: Step 1: Cut the String/elastic
When I craft, I often just find what is laying around me and make do with that.
This time, my boyfriend happened to have a strange sort of elastic rope material that I cut up.
You can use anything here but ideally it should have a little bit of stretch to go around your head. Even if it doesn't, its not the end of the world
Take whatever material you are using and wrap it around the top of your head, mark and add a few extra centimeters for when you glue and cut it out
Step 2: Step 2: Glue
Now that it is measured and cut, you can heat up your glue gun and glue the two ends together
Step 3: Find and Dirty Your Scrap Fabric
Her veil is very dirty and torn
So this is your time to go wild.
Measure how long you want it to be, cut an asymmetrical length out and try to dirty and fray it a little
You can even cut holes in if you want
and effective way of adding dirt is with black eye shadow
Step 4: Glue the Fabric On
Once your veil is in the right state, it is time to glue it on
Simply take the top of the fabric and wrap it around the black elastic.
Then bunch it up and begin gluing it in place
Step 5: Cut Wire and Petals
Her veil has little roses on it.
Depending on how many you want, cut out that number of pieces of wire measuring about 5cm in length
Then using remaining scrap fabric, cut out semi-circles for the flowers
Step 6: Colour Your Petals
I used a variety of colouring mediums just to see which would come out the best
I think that chalk and surprisingly eye shadow looked pretty neat
Whatever your preference, colour the edges in black and inside blue and try to smudge them a little
Remember to do this on both sidses
Step 7: Make the Petals
Get your glue gun ready and this time we are making little flowers
Take one edge of the semi circle and place it about 1cm down on the wire.
Touch a little glue so that it will stay in place.
Then slowly begin winding the fabric around, touching with glue wherever you need to keep it secure
bunch and adjust until it looks like a flower
Repeat with all the wire
Step 8: Complete the Veil
For the final touches, simply take the flowers you have made and wind the ends of the thin metal around the front of the veil.
And just like that, you have a lovely Corpse Bride wedding veil
