Diff on the lens

When using panyhose or nets on the lens, what is the best way to secure it? Are empty filter holders used?
I've made my own frames out of heavy chipboard and white glue to hold the netting, but I suspect you can use an empty metal filter frame and perhaps "snot tape" on the edges to hold the stretched net fabric.
Some people even just stretch them around the front of the lens and use a rubber band to hold it (that's what "Fiddler on the Roof" did), but the problem with that is that the diffusion effect is partially determined by how much you stretch the material, so you want it to be consistent.
