I was just going through some old pictures and I can't believe that I haven't shared this before! This summer, I made a custom wedding garter and matching ring pillow from the bride's mother's bridal veil. It turned out beautifully. It was a veil that also hat a hat attached to it, so there was a lot to work with! For the garter, I used the veil's tulle and then the lace and pearl accents. For the pillow, I used my own silk for the pillow cover, but then accented the pillow with the lace and pearl accents from the veil to match the garter.
