Soo much glue...
The back of the sun part is layers of cardboard held together by yep, you guessed it, glue, and metal tape, then oddles of yep, glue, attaching it to the base, and several nails hammered in the back of the base going through it and into the sun backing for extra security, and the two nails right under the sun in the front, doing double duty as extra support and holding the words.
Gods only know how much glue to hold down all the beads and such. And the layers of sealer over that. I should probably go back and double the price to recoup the glue expense. ^_^
Thanks for the kind words!
