How did you attach the net for basketball one? What’s netting was used and how is it attached
Hi Rachel, make the hoop by cutting out the top of an oatmeal container and then to make the net you just line up
two strings and tie those around your circle then take two pieces from different strands and tie those together for three rows. It helps to have someone fold it and cut off the excess string. Use a piece of white foam for the backboard that can be decorated with
tape and hot glue those together and onto the box. Hope that helps – if you check the video we included on the post the instructions for this start at 3:53
