  • political sign wire

    Ok, glad the election is over, but on the plus side I was able to pick up lots of the wire they use for the political yard signs, I'd say it's about 1/8" stock. What to do with it???????

    Thanks for any ideas you can share

    Page through the hundreds of pictures here, you may find some inspiration for metal art:

    Also useful for pegboard hooks.

        Some of it around here is galvanized, What I have used it for is I re shape it in to an arc topped plant holder up. For some the brushy type plants that have flowering type heads that are heavy. It helps keep the upright and after a bit they blend in behind the foliage. And it will also helps to keep the plants upright in heavy rains.

        As the ones on either side of the climbing trellis middle to left of picture. Or a light duty shorter trellis on the right. About half way thru the summer I have to put it in place, this picture is just before I placed them.

              I know somebody that makes them to fit corner joints of say porches, patio, posts etc and garden art. With spiders of the size for the web. some put them up for Halloween and end up leaving them up all the time.

                  Cut them into straight lengths. Sharpen one end, and pound them into the ground with the sharp end sticking up to keep politicians away.

                      Tomato plant cages? This year our plant count was down to something like 50 plants. Last year it was like 70. The wife likes to can, this year I got her a pressure canner. The water bath got used a lot though. Man I got sick of running green beans through a frencher.

                              Hotfoot, that was last year. The question now is, is the trend up or down?
