To make your bridal veil, first, fold the large tulle (from the fabric bolt) in half and add one end at a time into the Bowdabra, ‘Scrunchy Style’. There are no loops for this first step.

Next, add a couple of loops of the black 6″ glitter tulle, then add some of the cheesecloth strips into the Bowdabra as streamers/tails to your veil.

Then, use a couple of drop cloth strips and make a few loops and streamers to your veil.

Now, back to the cheesecloth… Build the rest of the bow with cheesecloth strips, making floppy loops as you go. Finish it with a few more streamers/tails.

Finally, add the Dollar Tree flowers into the bow and tie it tightly. Fluff your bow and trim where/if necessary. Add the clip-on Dahlia as the centerpiece to the bow at this time. Tie the bow around the fascinator and hot glue it too.

Use a strip of the drop cloth for a hatband and to hide the Bowdabra wire. That’s it! Try it on and make necessary adjustments. You may need to fluff, trim, or hot glue a little bit more to manipulate the shape and to customize the fit.
