Yipee, Mega Tree Done


Recommended Posts

Last year I just zipties to hold the strings on to the outriggers.  This year I used garden Velcro.  I first put two zipties on the outriggers about 7" from the center hoop.  This prevents the stings from sliding back towards the outer hoop.  I brought in one set of three, wrapped it, then the next one wrapped on top of the first and finally the third set.

 

I also trying something different this year and using the plant wire for the strings at the hoop side.  I wrapped the light string once around the hoop and tied it off.

 

Oh BTW, I HATE leaf season!!

 

 

I got the velcro at one of the big box stores.
