Hahaha, we could definitely do the scarecrow, Karen! We're in Alabama, so we're rarely freezing. That would be hilarious! Although it might also get the poor UPS guy... The cable idea would work if I had my suckers lining a walk, but I have them in small groups. Guess it would still work, just might not be as effective since they'd probably just take the whole small group. lol My husband is looking into a camera system for us. We've been wanting one, anyway, because we have a creepy neighbor who likes to walk around behind our house, terrorize the neighbor's dogs and lean over the fence to stare into our yard. That WE know of, hence the cameras being needed. lol Lots of good ideas on these forums, though, So glad I found y'all
Good idea! Do you have any ideas how to protect something as simple as a sucker staked into the ground with rebar? They nabbed the one I had closest to the road, rebar and all this evening. Not sure how to prevent that, other than to move my stuff further back. We're in a decent neighborhood, and I'm sure it was some brat with too much time on his hands today, but I'd like to prevent it in the future. Right now I'm down in the dumps and thinking about NOT putting stuff up next year except maybe the lights. But if we do, I think we'll try to save through the year and get a security camera if we can. Going to read through this forum, too, for ideas. Shame we have to protect Christmas decorations, isn't it??
Very good idea! I'm checking the yard sale group on Facebook frequently and sometimes I have seen them on the side of the road--all faded and dirty. I'll scrub that sucker. LOL I've used that plastic spray paint on a couple of things--it does work really well! I'm not handy with wood, so I need to find an alternative--the plastic will be perfect for me! As long as I can figure out how to store it!
That is super cool! I've been thinking of a way to make a 3D gingerbread house for next year. I'm thinking I may find an old plastic playhouse for toddlers and paint/mod it to be a gingerbread house. Our theme is candyland/gingerbread, so I'm always on the lookout for awesome things like this!
