Repairing/refurbishing outdoor Christmas snowmen, reindeer, polar bear
Janet Pizaro on Nov 22, 2015The only idea I can think of is to go to your craft store and buy rolls of Linear(the plastic children often use to make bracelets out of) I would use a spray paint for plastic first then weave this material through to cover any other imperfections.Helpful Reply
Valerie on Nov 22, 2015Does the plastic-y covering only cover the frame itself? If so, could you not use coloured duck tape or washi-tape? Electrical installation tape would be another option. You could just wrap it around for a similar effect.Helpful Reply
Ann on Nov 23, 2015Could you just spray paint them with like Krylon? They make a plastic paint. I'm not sure what you mean by plastic stuff.Helpful Reply
Opal on Nov 28, 2015I have no experience to offer but, if it were me, I would try to glue together using E6000 or the like, reinforcing with wire frame and chicken wire, modge podge with either heavy wrapping paper or cloth, paint and seal very well. Reinforcing the pieces with chicken wire and wire framing underneath to help hold their shape and stuff with either lightweight spray foam or stuffing where you can to maintain the shape.Helpful Reply
