What I do is get some hair ties like fuzzy said (black, stretchy ones), tie a knot in the middle, then hot glue the knot all over BDUs. This makes two small veg loops per hair tie and these are dirt cheap. I use them on my ghillie to fill in the bare spots that don't have any jute; this works really well.
I will third the hair ties, try to avoid the pink glittery ones. Ghillie suits actually perform better than straight veg as sometimes the real veg will give you away. It is better to be more subtle and sparing with the veg so that you breakup your shap and outline. Unless you want to be a giant fern bush and only stay in the ferns
Bush patches are an expedient way to create, in my opinion, a stronger type of hair band or tie, as they are specifically meant for adding natural veg to any clothing, they iron on. I would also watch the art of camouflage on youtube old but very good they show easy(lol as if) ways to create a number of camouflage systems. You can buy bush patches on bushrag.com for 2.23 american for 10 of them and for full body, in the video he says you would need about 30.
