Being the good women we all are, we iron them! Of course we do.

 economical, recycling at its best and a GREAT addition to outside decorating in the tropics. In Cairns (where I live) Christmas celebrations fall smack bang in the middle of our wet season (not that we've really had one for many years) so we miss lots of the outdoor decorations that southerners and many other countries get into.
