Dave .. We use 80lb Tess monofilament fishing line. The mono is pretty invisible and the high Tess keeps it from abrading over the tree branches. My Dh gets up on the porch roof, throws a weighted object with the line attached up over the branches .. We have huge maple trees in front. Normally takes a couple tries to get it right. Then we haul the skeletons up carefully, he normally pulls them up and I try to support them with an extension pole. We also pre pose them and tie arms and legs in place before we hang them.That looks so cool!
Are those guys just hanging from strings or what? Great display!
