Prepare the decorating bag with tip 2 and fill 1/2 full with stiff consistency buttercream, thinned with corn syrup. Hold the decorating bag 45° at 4:30 (7:30 for left-handers), the tip should be slightly above surface. Outline the shape to be covered.
Starting in the center of the outlined shape, pipe tip 2 diagonal strings to the right, attached to outline.
From the opposite side, pipe diagonal strings in the other direction, covering the area.
