    You can make a temporary one out of a cardboard box, or buy or build one.

    The only places that's sells them near me want 25$ for a medium size one.

    I didn't want to use a make shift one Incase they chew on it or something if I used plastic and or card board.

    If rabbits are going to chew, they will chew those wooden nesting boxes too. Even though rabbits are cuter, they are still a part of the rodent family.

    Though you are right about them chewing, rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents.

    You can try making one, but that could take more time than you want to spend. Anyway, here are some easy nestbox plans:
