Adding privacy to existing fence

I would like to add latice on the top of a 6' wood fence but i am not allowed to go higher.

However, as a semi-temporary solution i was thinking of setting 2 posts in 5 gallon buckets, each 6' high. I would then attach the 2' lattice panel in between the two posts making them 8' tall total.

My question is, do you think the wind would knock over my contraption?

Also i am open to other ideas on how i can add privacy above my fence line without actually attaching something to it.

Thanks

We need more information about what you have and what restrictions have been placed upon you.

Yes, I think anything 8' in the air based only in 5 gallon buckets will get blown over pretty easily, never mind how floppy and difficult to move into position it will be.

but i am not allowed to go higher.
So how would a separate, forget how it's accomplished, "thing" get around the original issue of not being allowed to go higher?

the ordinace is that fences cant be over 6'. Since whatever i decide to construct would not be attached to my fence, i would feel confident in telling anyone who disagrees to get lost.
