    The frame is made out of chicken wire and you form it yourself, sounds difficult but it is not. and once you have mastered that you can make just about anything!

      Is form filled with moss or is it hollow?

      Best landscape decoration ever.

  • Just stumbled over this post. Awesome! Sending to my girlfriend, she can do this in her yard. One of my neighbors did a family of quail, looks so darn cute!
