Default Re: First Communion Headpeice

My cousin made a similar one for my daughter. She wrapped a headband in satin ribbon, then used strips of bridal tulle that she hand gathered and stitched to the ribbon so it looked like it was attached to the edge of the headband. The layers were wide and you could not tell they were layers at all since it was so full. She used a bit of hot glue on the edges to fully secure. Then she covered the headband with tiny white sweetheart roses and baby's breath, so you could not see the headband at all. It's packed away or I would take a picture of it for you.
