Those instructions are fantastic!

Except for one thing......

If your using Hemp rope make your knots just a bit closer together than you think they should be. Once you get the glass back into the netting and put its weight against the rope it will stretch out a bit. Not a bad thing, but possibly disappointing when you look at it and then a few days later it seems to have 'sagged' a bit.

Yupp....I used the frosting spray on my float and it looks great. The only problem is that I don't have a light bulb in it yet and I'm not sure how the spray frosting will hold up with the heat of the bulb. Lemme know how it goes!

Good Idea.. I like when the netting is a little tighter looking... I'll post pics when done...
