Anytime you need a backdrop or cutout material, or something to spray paint on or glue on, use the signs.
Use the extra-large signs to construct a kid’s playhouse, fort or two for a tent.
Use a large sign or smaller one to cut out a giant Christmas tree or wreath or other Christmas or holiday decorations, covered it with leftover Christmas tree cuttings (using zip ties) or paint and then wrapped with Christmas lights. Other items, 3-D Christmas village, trees, gingerbread house. Make into a large box wrap with ribbon to look like Christmas presents to put in the yard.
The metal stakes are also a great way to anchor your yard holiday decor from getting blown over in the wind or wrap holiday lights before putting them away for the season.
