I'm making a large (maybe 4-feet tall?) survivor ribbon to go in my yard in the month of April. I'm stuck on the type of material to use. It only needs to survive a month outside, but obviously it needs to be sturdy enough to withstand rain and wind. The color is blue, so I'm thinking of using a tarp. What do you think? The material I choose will be wrapped around a wire foundation.

It's us: DH , DS ; DD ; and me . Also there's the . And the 3 . I . Oh, and .

Any good places to get this? Preferably online - not many local craft supply stores
