I agree with feedslinger....but HS puts out a burlap-type fabcric that will do a dandy - but won't protect you from the rain.

That green netting from Home Depot works good....I bought some and put around my tri-pod blind. IT is used to roll over Arbors and is pretty inexpensive and allows wind & rain to pass thru it.......

i would just buy one of the cheap popups from Sportsmanguide and be doen with it. I got a hubstyle for $75 last year. Lasted all year secured to a portable 5 X 5 platform. If you are like me - you will end up spending more trying to make something you already have work than just buying something that ends up costing less that is specifically designed for your purpose smile

You cand probably get buy with something under $50 by buying some cheap netting/camo material from sportsamanguide or ebay and make yourself a 4' 4' boxblind frame out of 2 x 4s. That is about as cheap as an option that I can think of.

I've used wooden pallets before when I was caught on a lease that my tree stand was stolen. Got some camo burlap from a nearby Wal-Mart, wired the pallets together with some baling wire and wrapped the camo around it, cost me about $20, but no roof. 4 or so 2x4's would have done that in a pinch (roof)
