With tomorrow being Independence Day in the United States, I’ve noticed some things happening in my neighborhood. Fireworks which are illegal in my county explode all night. American flags replace the little ‘summer fun’ banners that hang from flag poles. And, decorative cut out yard decorations start to grace the front lawns my my neighbors’ yards. Something like this:
You got it – a sheet of plywood, a jigsaw, some paint and a way to have them stand in the ground and bingo, you have a yard decoration. And it’s not just Independence Day when these appear – there are reindeer for Christmas, Cupids for Valentine’s Day, rabbits for Easter… the works.
This week, let us know if you have ever built a wooden yard ornament for any holiday, or if the idea of building them turns you off.
