Step 1: Materials
a piece of burlap big enough to wrap around your body 3 times
camouflage pants(i didn't want to make my nice camo pants ghillified so i made a par of pants)
camouflage shirt or jacket
netting with 1 inch spacings(cut up a baddmitten net)
fabric dyes(that blend into your surroundings)
hot glue gun
lots of time
Step 2: Getting the burlap string
Once you have all the string cut it into thirty or twenty inch strings then you will be ready to dye the string .
Step 3: Dye the string
For a lush green forest pick green dyes , for an area that has dead leaves on the ground pick some browns , for a field pick tans . Pick colors that blend into the surroundings where you want to use it .
I picked olive green and a plain green because I want to use it in a forest
Dye your burlap your colors .
Take the burlap out at different times to give it different shades of that color .
Step 4: Attach the netting
Lay the clothes your using out flat on the ground and lay the netting over it and cut the netting to the size of your clothes .
Make sure to cut netting for both sides of your ghillie suit if you want to make a full body ghillie suit ,
if your a sniper and lay down a lot only cut netting for the back .
Step 5: Attacch the burlap
To attach the burlap grab 3 or 4 strings at a time . Bend them in half so they make a long u shape . Place the u shape under a string from the netting , fold the long u in half with one half under the nets string the other half over . Pull the ends through the loop at the end and do that to all the string .
Make sure your colors are spread out . Meaning don't put all the green in one place and all the brown in another .
I'll add pics soon .
Step 6: Good job
Ghillie suits are proffesional tules used by real snipers .

Remember ghillie suits are supposed to be 40 percent burlap and 60 percent natural vegetation .
