Make a Covered Wagon
Lay the cloth over the wires. Sew around the wires and through the cloth so that the wires are held in place by the stitches (small stitches work best). As you go from one wire to the next, leave a bit of slack in the cloth so that it droops slightly between the wires. (Cloth can also be glued to wires.) Let ends of pieces hang as curtains in front and rear.
