It only needs to survive a month outside, but obviously it needs to be sturdy enough to withstand rain and wind. The color is blue, so I'm thinking of using a tarp. What do you think? The material I choose will be wrapped around a wire foundation.

Any good places to get this? Preferably online - not many local craft supply stores
