  1. Atmosphere Effects: How to attach webs to a tent / ez-up / tarps?

    Halloween Props
    Hey all. Last year I tried to do a spider scene within an ez-up with tarp walls.

We had to move away from a great place where we have 4 acres of a haunted trail. What would you suggest I use to build walls to hold up these tarps?
