3D Western Ranch Entry Arch
Though the double-stick tape wasn't strong enough to hold up the sign, as other reviewers mentioned, the overall purchase was fantastic! We used the arch as a set piece in a recent middle school melodrama production. It looked fantastic on stage, was easy to assemble (my students put it together), and now lives in my classroom (the kids didn't want to take it apart and it fits perfectly over my classroom door).
Paired with the split rail fence posts (also from this site), the arch created a great western look. Thank you, Oriental!

This really put a nice finishing touch to our cowgirl birthday party theme. Put it together way in advance. I forgot to, and you can write or paint something personalized on the top sign.

Great accent piece to enhance the doorway entering the student dinning room. I was however missing one leg which compromised the sturdyness of the piece

Great Atmosphere Setter...Cardboard A Little Weak?
Perfect item to set the "theme" for your western event. The cardboard was cut incorrectly in a place or two, so it was too thin and tore, but once it was completely set up (with the help of a few taped pieces) overall, strong enough to last two days of lots of kids going through it. We're still glad we bought it, just took a little extra time and tape to get it there!!

This was GREAT! It was big, looked good, was sturdy enough for a week's use and everyone loved the way it looked in our sanctuary. The only downside to it was that the double stick tape did not hold the rope, horseshoes, etc. onto the surface of the arch. Having read that comment in another review, we tried the tape first; and when it didn't hold, we were ready with a staple gun and it did just fine then!

A Quick Fix
Relatively easy to assemble. It is made of cardboard so don't set your expectations too high. I did not use the cut-out stars, horseshoes, & rope on the arch but instead placed 2 back-to-back and hung them from the ceiling for some creative decorations in a small classroom. I believe you would be pleased with the results if you don't expect too much. I also used the "rusty barbed wire" with t-posts for a fence look.

The only problem I had with this, is that the double sided tape provided with the kid, did not hold the sign or items on.
