This project is very budget friendly, albeit time-consuming. Start to finish, it will take a few hours. To begin the project, start off by gathering your materials. For this project, I used vines gathered from the wooded area across our street. This instructable is written to create a trap approximately 2' tall and approximately 18" wide. To make larger or smaller, the steps will be the same, but the lengths and quantities of supplies will vary.
You will need:
- 5 - 1" thick, 5' long pieces of vine for the frame
- approximately 50-60' of more vine (thickness and amount needed may vary. Depending on the size of the finished project, you may find you need more or less)
- pruning shears
- 5 sticks, approximately 15" in length
Instead of vines, you can use other materials. For the frame pieces, you will need something long, but flexible. For the weaving pieces, you can substitute with rope or some other similarly very long flexible material.
