      via Betty Rioridan How to Secure a Bridal Veil to a Comb by Rebekah Martin: Attach the veil to a comb so that it stays in place securely. Brides traditionally wear wedding veils when they come down the aisle. You can attach a veil to a hat, a tiara or a simple comb. Attaching the veil to a comb allows you to wear it alone or with another headpiece, as the comb virtually disappears in the hair. Veils cost a lot of money in bridal stores, but you can easily make one yourself with tulle. A little bit of hand sewing will secure it to a comb, ready to wear. Things You'll Need: Veil, Comb, Needle, Thread, Scissors. 1. Lay the top of the veil against the top of the comb. The veil should flow backwards in the same direction as the comb teeth. 2. Thread your needle with a strong thread. Use a thread in the same color as the veil or use clear, invisible thread. 3. Turn the comb and veil upside down so you can see the teeth. Thread your needle through the tulle. 4. Whip stitch between the teeth, over the back of the comb and through the edge of the veil. Continue down the entire length of the comb. Whip stitch the comb length again if you feel it is not secure enough. 5. Knot and trim any loose threads.
