EASY HOMEMADE NETTING!



HI Friends! I wanted to share with you how easy it is to make the netting used in my layout!
 First grab a bag of produce! I chose this because I liked the larger netting! Look around at the fruits & veggies & you will be surprised at the different kinds!
 Cut open & lay out the net. I used Making Memories Metallic Copper paint, as I wanted to pick up the metallic in the papers. ANY craft paint will work! I found the metallic really held to the net fantastically! I swipe a layer on the work space to test the color.
 Roll the netting into a ball & squeeze some paint on. Do this several times to make sure you have the net full of color!
 Unwind the netting & check to make sure all areas are covered & excess globs removed!
 Allow to dry! I always clip mine to the little dangles hanging from the ceiling fan & place my fan on low! Dries real quickly!
Cut and stretch to your desire!
I adhered it with a couple swipes of double sided tape!
There ya go! I can think of many uses for the netting! I hope you try this & let me see what you have done with the netting!
Thanks Friends! You guys are the best! :)
