    hello all,

    Realistic trees or stylized trees? wintry bare trees or foliage having trees?
    Snowmen- easiest way would be to use beefnetting and pillow stuffing. Beefnetting comes as a tube, if on the ground then drive in a Tpost, if inside then use a pipeflange on a wooden base so you have a center stick. cut about 8' of beef netting and put it over the stick/pipe/tpost staple/ pin down the inside of the beefnetting and fill up the bottom with stuffing till it is full and round (beefnetting is pretty stretchy) then ziptie the top of that "ball" around the post. then stuff the next layer and zip tie that and then the last layer. That gives you the classic snowman shape for about $20 (cheaper if you find cheaper/free stuffing).
    i hope that helps,

    I found some real looking ones people use in their haunt for the holidays. i sprayed those and they glow pretty well. Pine trees. Maybe I can ask around to see if anyone is throwing out old ones after they buy a new one this year.

    Not one kid has been "Good" this year.
    Hate to see you waste your time.
    Santa took this December off, word has it he will be lounging on a southern beach, probably a nude beach.
    Don't tell the kids.

    I just can't do it. All I can come up with is the ashes and switch room, a display of haunted red sweaters with holley leaves and berrys sewn on, Santa's cloning facilities and his jet powered Santa Mobile/Time machine. Possible torchure library for parents that made every Christmas time a living hell. Some bitchy old lady that doesn't issue anyone a library card with out a note from their landlord.

    Merry Christmas


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.

    Who says window-peeking doesn't pay. Blackmail?
    If only those crusty old books on the shelves could talk.
    Wild happenings in the "SSSHHHH!" room, right next to National Geographic collection, you know the ones, the ones the boys always seemed to find so interesting back then.
