I used natural fiber rope so that my knotting would stay in tact.  Nylon rope is too smooth.

To start, I tied off the end.

    This looks super. I honestly dont know what Id do without spray paint. I cant get over the colours available now,.
    I guess the other thing is where would we be without wine? haha Great idea and really workable for indoors and out.
