That's pretty cool, but it would be better to use sheets of plastic so it could be reused.

It doesn't stick good when cold.Going from bottom up seems like it invites leaks.

Starting from the bottom, the upper layers will overlap the lower reducing leakage. Same way you lay shingles.

I have done this in the past. I go out several times every year on a hunting 'wild camp out' in the hills.
Last October time I built a wickiup style shelter rather than a teepee style and used the stretchwrap roll method as shown in the OP to wrap it.
I actually took along 2 cans of car spray paint and when finished and wrapped, I spray painted it cammo style in green and black. Beneath the tree canopy among high undergrowth that was dying back, although all was still very green it was very very hard to see indeed.
When I go out on these camp outs I always have a roll of stretchwrap in the truck cos' besides a shelter like this, it can be wrapped from tree to tree or several trees to form a very useful wind break or over branches as a rain shelter.
The wickiup lasted just over a week before high winds tore it about to where I just cut all the wrap off the structure and burnt it on the camp fire along with the structural saplings.
Yes you do wind upwards overlapping, then it is waterproof and using industrial tacky stretchwrap it sticks to itself quite well on the overlapping.
I got the idea off youtube, just put in the search 'Bushcraft dome built from branches and plastic wrap', done by a guy called Advoko Makes.
This is just how I made mine, well worth watching this one, it's brilliant, you've got see it if you are taken with this idea of a shelter. Sorry don't know how to link in a YT vid.
