I have 2 inflatable lawn ornaments: Cat in the Hat with a Christmas Tree, and Santa Claus with a present.

As night goes on, we get frosted up from the day gone by, the cat respods with the tree and hat falling a bit, but Santa falls over completly!

Any ideas on helping the old chap, and getting the two more resilent?

Tying fishing line to it's top and then to 4 or 5 stakes pounded in the ground in a circle around it?

Santa used to get his cap tied to a tree branch every year, but I would rather not do that, and both have tie outs from the midsection. I can't understand how tying fishing line over the top would help.

If these are the blow-ups with the fans/blowers, you can put a couple of "ziploc " baggies full of sand inside. Just open the zipper that lets the air out and space them around the bottom. Then zip it up and re-inflate.
