I looked last year - no such thing.

We were turning a large, high-ceiling living room into a forest for a faerie/goblin/fey theme, and there was no fabric that could cover that roof cheaply, not camo, not dorp, not landscape fabric, nothing.

The solution? Camo fabric, the cheap stuff, from walmart or hancock's.
About every hand span we cut an X in the cloth using pinking shears. This approximated the look well enough in the dark. Adding imitation vine and spanish moss helped, too.

Spats has the right idea. Or you could use a couple of hammocks, the netted ones, or tennis nets, cut burlap strips and inter weave them into the netting. You can get them at most sporting goods stores for around $20.

Spats, that's a GREAT idea!

Last year I got my cammo netting on eBay for a good price but I won't recommend the seller. He really jacked with me. I felt lucky I got the stuff at all.

I bought mine at Transworld, and while it certainly wasn't cheap, I think I got a pretty good deal, and it's gonna look AWESOME in our swamp room!!!

Thanks.....Ebay is where I've gotten all my netting so far....I was hoping to find a cheaper option....I got a GREAT deal last year off Ebay but that guy is no longer a registered user....Thanks Spooky.....That 1st one looks great and I'll definitely watch and probably bid but I'll probably pay a good bit more than that in the end if I wanted to win it....That's how it always works out in my case anyway:(....I don't really like the second option....I always bypass that kind because they just look home made to me....They are another country's version of camo netting....Thanks again....I guess I'll just have to make the decision between camo netting or spirit props....ZR

I looked everywhere for good prices.
I finally bought a 10'x20' brown and green camo net on Ebay for $80 with no shipping cost.

How about using some landscapers burlap and hit it with a couple of different flat colors of spray paint - green, brown, grey or black.

You can get the burlap at many different home and garden type stores.
