I removed the outside test finial in late August and it held up just fine. What I have noticed is the hot glue is having issues sticking to the PVC. If you rough up the PVC with a heavy grit sand paper or a file the glue has somewhere to bite and holds up better.

Update on how these hold up. I had my fence out the entire month of October. We received a ridiculous amount of rain the entire month, I actually think we set a record in Chicago. The finials held up great, a few were damaged I think due to people trying to figure out what they are made from, the day before Halloween i ran around with the glue gun and did some minor repairs. Im very happy with the results, they held up better than expected.

discozombie- The fence and finials look really good!!

I'm inspired by your DIY 3D finials. If I have time this season I'd fashion some up. It's good to hear they held up in the weather.

I did mine flat cut out of styrene a few years ago (primarily because I had so many other props I made - I went nuts that year).

Here's what styrene looks like. It would probably be too thin for the style you made. I'm not sure how 3D I could make these look. It could be cut to slide together. It definitely holds up to the elements. Styrene might cost more than your solution(?)

Thank you for this tutorial! I just made 64 for my fence. Cutting them all out was tedious but they turned out great! I skipped the circular band at the bottom. Mostly because I was just tired of cutting foam
