Not sure what you mean but FWIW I carry a piece ofcamo fabric in my pack that I use as the basis for a ground blind when I set up. I hunt exclusively from the ground and this gives me a light blind that I can set up and take down quickly. I use black shoe laces or para cord to tie it to surrounding trees / foliage.
I have even run it thu the washer with scent free soap to help kill any odors when I bought the fabric.

Would this do?

You can go to Wal-Mart's sporting goods section and get a turkey hunter's blind, which is a long strip of camo cloth that has short poles inserted into it, for about $20. You unwind the fabric and push the ends of the poles into the ground to form a semicircle around the base of a tree, then you sit at the base of the trunk, wearing a turkey hunting vest with a padded backrest is reccomended. Most of the one's I've seen are leaf cut and come in a variety of popular patterns. With the turkey season over in most areas they're probably on clearance, if not you can find them at Bass Pro or Cabela's any time. I've hunted deer with one many times.

Instead of trying to build a wood tree stand I would highly recommend just buying an aluminum ladder stand. You can get one cheaper than buying the materials to build a wood stand, it is safer, easier to move and if you want a top on it just fashion one out of 1/2 inch PVC and a few fittings and screw a piece of 3 foot by 4 foot aluminum roofing to it. The burlap camo works well, but usually won't last but a couple of years.

Horizontal Hunter,I like your idea for a ground set-up.I might have to do that myself from time to time.Lugging around a climbing stand can get a bit tiresome.It sounds simple but effective!

Just get some stakes at a garden center and the camo material.Some brands like HS offer such blinds ready to go at low cost.I'd suggest something made from synthetic material otherwise you have to watch out for mildew/rot.

Do you want a ground blind or a tree stand?

Why do you want it to wrap around a tree?
