OK, I have cut some small motifs from gowns hemline lace, arranged them with pins more or less the way I want it to look. But now need ideas about how to make it into a headpiece.

Right now just pinned to the head, but I will need some kind of backing material (to sew motifs onto). Then will need to attach that to a barette.  Huh

Any ideas appreciated. Thanks

I would sew them together and attach them to a comb, then starch the heck out of them.

ETA: and maybe add a few wispy feathers around the edge.

What about just a headband? You could wrap it in ribbon, apply your motifs, then add any veil tulle that you want. It can all be sewn or glued as needed.

I was going to say headband too - kind of like what Rami did on Project Runway for his collection... LOL  Smiley

I think some feathers sticking out would look good too and kind of complete the look.  I'm pretty sure you could make a tulle headband pretty easy.
