If you’ve never seen a political sign on the side of the road, chances are you’re stuck indoors. And I’ve had a cold this past week of him and haven’t been out as often as I’d like, but I’ve been inundated with political ads, pictures, slogans, blue, red, and white signs .
Today, I look at those signs, their thick material, their potential uses when they disappeared, when votes were counted, when oaths were taken, when democracy moved forward, when the signs were taken down. I enjoy thinking about
First, use this material to make a Thanksgiving placemat. they are all different. I use box cutters to create different patterns such as turkeys, pilgrims, pumpkins, mayflowers, etc. My guests will be amazed at my creativity. They will be amazed by the placemats. Thanksgiving dinner is forever changed.
And those signs are used for Christmas decorations. I make ornaments and turn the hard cardboard into wreaths, santas, bells, angels and Christmas trees. People will clamor for recycled treasures. They post their ornaments on Facebook, tweet, and create Tick Toks celebrating their original treasures. Making political signs goes viral.
Finally, after the holidays, focus on your jewelry. Numerous signs allow everyone to wear necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. All available from that sign. Again, crowds flock to wear these pieces to weddings, Valentine’s Day dinners, and graduations. Ah, that long ago.
I know who I’m voting for, Joyful Musers, and it’s about recycling all the signs and putting these midterm elections to some really good, tangible uses. please give me. Vote for me, vote for creativity, and vote for new placemats, decorations, and jewelry.
And seriously, just vote. Please. Your life and the livelihoods of those signs depend on it.
