Hello! Thanks for stopping by today. Today I’d like to share how to make these beautiful, totally easy and quick Decorative Flower Pot Stakes.
I recently made some copper and aluminium flowers (see below). The only difference between these flowers and the one’s I made first are that these are made with actual copper tooling foil as opposed to aluminium tooling foil that was tinted copper.
Below are the first flowers I made with the copper tinted aluminium, Copper & Aluminium Embossed Flowers.
Holding real copper tooling foil over a flame is a great way to add some different colors to the metal. I used a candle flame. You must be careful because the metal gets very hot quickly, so use something to hold the metal – don’t use your fingers!
Hand embossing a very simple design only takes a minute for these quick flowers. Don’t you love the color the heat gave the metal?
For the birds, I drew a pattern on a piece of paper and transferred it to the metal. I used an embossing folder to add quick texture. These birds were lightly painted white and then dabbed with a paper towel to give them an antique look.
I also added a little black paint and dabbed that as well to antique them. The wings are hand embossed, cut out and glued on with E6000 glue.

I just love these little plant stakes!
