Knot — But Do Not Cut — Ends
Leave tied-off ends loose and do not trim. Keep your web as tight as you can, like the skin of a drum. I also left all ties with two loose ends dangling. These ties are what secures the adornments you will add in the final stage of the project. Remember to keep that web taut!
Tips on creating a seamless look:
Finally, once all loose areas have been pulled and tied tightly, your web will be tight and ready to decorate. Using a lace crocheted doily like this one provided me with an instantly intricate design that would have been beyond my capabilities. Using similar fibers and colors, the doily blends almost seamlessly into the project. Adorn your piece with tassels, feathers, stones, gems, trinkets, shells, fabric, and any special object that gives you a feeling of peace. Hang and enjoy!
