Well, I am actually DONE with my current job! It worked out really great for me- if you want to hear the hilarious story, you know where to find me.
Bad news is I'm still sick - today I've been super foggy and stuffed up - I feel hot but my temp is pretty low. Never good the week of your bachelorette party!
Since my bachelorette party is 80's themed, I really wanted to do a neon veil. So I decided to DIY. And hope that through my sick stupor it turned out better than past attempts. Luckily it did. Here's your lackluster DIY instructions...
I bought a yard each of pink and orange tulle at Jo-Ann's and cut them in half. I also got a comb for the veil from their bridal section. Probably spent too much on it (I think it was around $6!) but time was of the essence. I also got pink embroidery thread and re-used a thick needle I had from this (failed) project. When I got home, I broke out the glue gun.
That's right, set it down on a KFC menu. Why the heck not.
I glued the left corner of the tulle (all 4 layers) to the left corner of the comb. The glue went on the part of the comb that would rest on your head, and the tulle wrapped over it.
Great picture, right? Sicky couldn't break out the macro? Ugh, pathetic.
Then I did the same to the far right side, and then the center.
I continued gluing until it was all attached. It was still too poofy though, and that's where the thread comes in. I threaded the needle around the base of the comb.
I went right to left then criss-crossed left to right.
I tied off the end and secured it with a dab of glue. At this point I also realized that the macro might help. Finally!
I figured you'd all want to see it on. But remember, I'm sick. No makeup. Hot & cold. I put in the thermometer for effect.
Ok so minus the sick bride, it looks so awesome!!!!!
The tulle was super cheap- less than $2/yard - so if you could find an affordable comb this would be a great thing to make for a bachelorette. You could do white, their wedding colors, or something to go with their theme. I know a lot of bachelorette parties do black and pink decor, and I think black and pink would look awesome in a veil!!!
And yea, I know it's weird that I'm making this for myself. But I just HAD to!!!!!!!
What color would your veil be?PS- if any of you bloggers are going to be in NYC this weekend, let me know!!! Because I will make you attend!!!
