Hi! getting them to stand is a job.but heres a way that might work.get some sand and big zip lock bags.fill them up with sand.use as many bags you need.that should work.just never put sand in blow molds without useing the bags.it will shortout because sand holds water.you also can nail them down too.heres two pics of my display last year.the 3 on the porch are tied to the rails on the porch.that work well for me they never fell even in the wind.the all red candle is sitting over a wooden pole that i put in the ground.i just set the candle over it.it still moved some but it never fell over.i also use big rocks.well hope this helps.

thanks john.

We got a snow man one at a garage sale when we still lived in NJ. We kept him out on our patio at the apartment. During the summer we used to stand him in front of our grill with an apron on. Sometimes we'd sit him in one of the patio chairs in front of a table. I'll have to find a picture of him in the apron.
