Some ideas on converting those inflatable Xmas decorations into something to hang from the kite line.

I wish he showed photos of his stuff in the air. Inflating a Santa from a vent in the belt only, I wouldn't have thought that would have worked well. But I don't have experience with inflatables.

Thats one reason why my snowman is more like a windsock. That and I couldn't wait to get any screening :wink:

I have a santa on a motorcycle on my front lawn right now, he will probably be wearing a bridle after the first of the year :twisted:

Nice link Mike, looks like it would not be too hard to do with any of the seasonal lawn decorations. Just a little cut -n- sew, and bridling. Would make for some great eye catchers at our club flies during the different holidays.

:up: I'm going to keep looking at the goodwill/sally ann stores for battered lawn balloons, WANTED: GRINCH, anything NOT seen in my neighbors lawn! Maybe one of those "dancing" stick figure things we see at every used car dealership...10 Foot Hot Air Balloon on eBay(this one on the bay can't be made for a fraction of this price)

Before I worry too much about hanging the laundry I'm going to have to get some goodies from Dave at Chicago Kite. I'm still thinking the next kite in my bag will have to be an SUL. And get the stuff to make those 120 linesets.

Here is Snoopy enjoying life after being a yard art object. Now he is a favorite at all the festivals where he appears.

At a night flight I would hit him with the spot light and cheers of "Snoooooopy!" from the crowd would keep him flying high!! LOL

We finally got around to removing the lump hanging from beneath his house/plane. It now has a flat bottom.

Do you want a new kite? Build one! Enjoy it three ways, planning, construction, flying.

:-) I like that!

To bad Hector and Kiteguy can't fly together very often. Their kites would be fun to see flying together!
