Y'ER OUT ! W
Opening Day Sign
Get a roll of white plastic tablecloth, clothes line cord twice the length of the home and red spray paint. You'll also need a brown paper bag, some spray cooking oil and an iron. On a large table lay a board to iron on. On top of that board place a metal house screen. You will place the two pieces of table cloth on top of the board and screen with a large piece of brown paper bag on top of the plastic. Spray cooking oil on the bag to prevent it from sticking. Then iron with the long edge of the iron moving the iron slowly to seal the plastic together. Test your work and go over if needed. Make two seams for double assurance of sealing. The screen creates perforations of sealed plastic. Seal three rows of table plastic together the length of the house and then lay the clothes line along the top and bottom and flip over about three inches and seal the line into the slot made. Seal the sides before sealing the top and bottom. Tie the sign up on the house and spray paint "Y'ER OUT! W" Then cut half circle patterns with the flap down every so often and the wind will not blow it out. Takes about four hours. Want one done? $300. Spray paint is not permanent, will scratch off. maybe I can find a better more receptive plastic.
Get those old campaign yard signs with the plastic over wire and turn the plastic inside out and paint your slogan. I suggest using lines from protest songs. We put one in our yard that says, "The Great Warriors Stand For Peace."
