How thick is the vinyl?
The banner we had was probably about 1mm thick (maybe ever so slightly
less) but it had rings around it so it could be cable tied up to things
like railings or a fence. Okay that might not help if you've got
nothing to cable tie it to.

Couple of lumps of wood in a bucket full of concrete with the banner
cable tied to it?
(Sorry engineering isn't my strong point).
