Hey guys, I'm about to start work on my first ghillie suit, and I just wanted to be sure that you guys think my plan of action will be well suited for the summer months.

I plan on getting an OD Jacket, as I already have camoflage pants. I will take fishermen netting and attach it to these garments.

Im not sure if I should attach it on all the surface area of these garments, also, is it shoe goo that I use to actually attach it or do I have to sew it?

Then I will buy camo burlap from my local walmart. I will then spray this burlap with my Krylon Camo paints to give it a more authentic camoflage pattern. I will then tear shreds of burlap, varying the lengths between 6 and 12 inches, and tie them onto the fishermens netting.

How wide should these pieces be, 1-2 inches? Also, should I put one strip on each side of every square of the netting, or space it another way?

Thanks for any tips/suggestions you can give me, I hope it won't be too hot for summer use as well.

use real plants from around your area. it gives a better, more natural looking camo. especially if your in a field with tall grass, you should use the grass from that field.

yea i plan on doing that, many people have mentioned that and I think I found an even better way of making the ghillie suit. I was told by a guy on ASR, "tobemarine" that the best way to make a ghillie is to shoe goo elastic triangles onto the jacket, with shoe goo holding each end of the elastic strip onto the jacket. This way, I can lift up the strap and insert foliage and not have to glue it on and pull it off later or when the season changes. This will be done with my gun as well, to keep people from spotting it. Hope it works out, and thanks for the tip Nate!
