How can I build a cheap shelter for my plants?

Hey people :) I've got 9 plants going outdoors, currently theyre in a little green house but soon there won't be enough room. I'd like to house at least 5 of them. 

I've been looking at trying to do some cloche hoops/ polytunnel thing but pre-built ones look flimsy and building my own seems like itll cost a pretty penny. 

Anybody any tips? thx in adv!

If you made one it may cost but then it would last good few seasons I'm not very DIY savvy so I took the el cheapo polytunnel route which works for me but I'd buy stakes and make sure its properly tied down... The polys do get hot and need burping but they're cheap and cheerful bit small but I LST..mines lasted 4 seasons so far but I'll look to upgrade next year
