I was talking with my aunt the other day about making a sign for my front yard and after talking about it we came up with an idea...
I have 8 pillars on the sides of the steps leading to my front door and we thought about making dummy cakes to put on them as "advertisement"/decoration. We were thinking about taking styrofoam tiers, and covering them in drywall mud, then painting and decorating them, then covering them with a sealer. We would have to hollow them out and weight them down so they didn't move.
Anyway my question is has anyone attempted something like this or would you have any sugestions that may work to allow them to be exposed to the elements.
Haven't tried it myself, but I can't see a reson why it wouldn't work. I'd love to see pictures if and when you decide to do it. I think it's a great idea!
sounds like a cute idea. I'd just be sure you're zoned ok for a business and/or your homeowner assoc permits it. (In my sub-division, the only sign you can put in front of your house is a "For Sale" or a "Sold" sign. At election time, I get on my high-horse about stifling my freedom of political speech ... but that's a lounge forum topic! )
