    Could you tell me how you build the frame for this! I have been parading for 12 years and have run out of new ideas! I would love to copy cat your awesome idea!

      We built a simple armature with 2 X 4 boards. Each leg (board) was stuck into a 5 gallon bucket that we poured concrete into. We covered the whole thing with chicken wire. We then stuffed the holes of the chicken wire with tissue paper
