Introduction: Make a Steel Garden Flower

We've all seen metal garden flowers at the store or in other people's yards, but have you ever wanted your own that wasn't so cookie-cutter perfect and without personality? With some simple tools (and a few not-so-simple ones) you can make your own garden flower out of mild steel.

This Instructable assumes that you know a little bit about sheet metal work. I have written several Instructables that cover some of these techniques.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Materials:

- 2 square feet of 20 or 22 Gauge sheet steel
- 3/16" x 1 1/4" bolt
- 3/16" nut
- 3/16" Plastic or Nylon Washers
- 3/16" Lockwasher
- Printed Design
- Spray paint in the colours you have selected
- 4 feet of 1/4" or 3/8" solid steel rod

Safety Gear:

- Goggles
- Gloves
- Ear protection

Tools:

- Ball-pein Hammer
- Blowtorch
- Anvil
- Scriber
- Drill
- Bandsaw or Jigsaw
- Hacksaw
- Metal files
- Screwdriver
- Scissors
- Scotch Tape
- MIG welder (and ALL ASSOCIATED SAFETY EQUIPMENT)
- Bucket of water

Once we have these things we can proceed to laying out our pattern on the material.

Step 2: The Pattern

So, the first step is to lay out the pattern on the steel. Start by cutting out the designs below with scissors. You can print them out whatever size you would like, but as a general rule:

Big Flower Petals: 1 foot diameter.
Flower Center: 5 inch diameter.
Leaves: 4 inch diameter.

Once they're cut out, tape them onto the steel, and use the scriber tool to scratch their outline onto the steel. This will be our cutting guide, so make sure its visible.

Once the guides are in place, pull off the paper and discard.

Step 3: Shaping the Stem

So, inserting a straight stick into the ground won't exactly be very sturdy, so the trick used by most garden items is to have a second leg come out of the main stem, turn at a 90 degree angle, and go into the ground to help stabilize the flower.

The easiest way to bend the steel rod is to bend it while it is still the full length, so that you can use the length for bending leverage. Place one end in a vice and apply torch heat to the place you want to bend, 6 inches from the end in the vice. Grab the long end of the rod and pull down with steady pressure. As the bending point heats up, the rod will bend easier and easier. Bend the rod to a 90 degree angle, stop heating and remove it from the vice. Quench the bend in a bucket of water.

Place the stem horizontally in the vice and use a hacksaw to saw off the bend portion 6 inches up the stem from the 90 degree bend. We will be welding this onto the rest of the stem later.

Place the opposite end of the stem vertically in the vice. Do the same technique of bending, this time applying heat about 1 inch from the end and bending to around a 35 degree angle. Quench it in the bucket again.

Drill a 3/16" hole in the top end of the stem as shown in the image below. This is where our flower will be bolted in place.

Step 4: The Leaves

The leaves are the first piece of real metal shaping that we get to do. Back in Step 2 we copied the patterns onto the sheet of steel. Using the jigsaw, cut around the shape of the leaves. Using a file, deburr the edges so that they aren't sharp and won't be dangerous to our fingers.

The sheet metal shaping is totally free-form and there isn't a "right" way to do anything, so I'm doing my best to explain it below.

The first step in shaping the leaves is to place them in the vice along a near-symmetrical line and using the flat face of the hammer, bend the leaf in half so that it has a 45 degree bend.

Place a old rag on the anvil and strike the obtuse side of the leaf to curve it into a more leaf-like shape. Strike the nose of the leaf to bend it downward. Basically, just keep hitting until it looks like a metal leaf. If its not turning out amazing, hammer it flatter and try again.

If everything is satisfactory, we can move to welding the stem together.

Step 5: Welding the Stem

The first thing we are going to weld the 90 degree bent piece of steel we cut off in Step 3 to the stem.

I'm assuming that you have first-hand and supervised welding experience and proper safety equipment to perform this task. If you don't have the equipment for welding, use nuts and bolts. Attach the metal segments as shown in the image below.

To weld the leaves, place the ground clamp securely on the shaft of the stem, and using one hand, hold a leaf securely where you want to weld it. Cutting a notch at the base of the leaf might make this easier to accomplish. Place your first weld on top of the leaf, then weld the bottom side once or twice to make sure the leaf is securely attached. Repeat for Leaf #2.

Step 6: The Flower

Finally, the main attraction!

Start by using a jigsaw to cut out the petal shape inscribed on the steel sheet. File the edges to deburr them and reduce your likelyhood of needing a hospital trip.

Drill a 3/16" hole in the center of your petal shape. Trust me, its easier to do this now.

Shaping the petals can be difficult because the other petals get in the way when you're trying to shoehorn the piece onto the end of the anvil. Simply gently bend the other petals out of the way to expose the petal you are working on.

Shape it using the same methods you discovered and developed while doing the leaves. Placing a center crease down each petal makes it much easier to maintain symmetry while shaping the rest of the petal.

The yellow ball in the center (or as Google informs me, the stigma,) is difficult to imagine on paper, but actually folds up quite nicely into a ball-like shape. Cut it out with the jigsaw and drill a 3/16" hole in the center of it, too.

Start by hammering one segment of the stigma into a gentle curve using the horn of the anvil, then bend it back so it isn't in the way of the next segment being worked on. Continue until you have a "widely opened flower" shape.

Bend each segment back towards each other to get a ball-like shape, beating it with a hammer to bend them tighter and to group them closer together. They will probably overlap slightly, so just keep rearranging their overlaps so that one segment doesn't dominate too heavily over another.

When you're done, see how they fit together. You may need to adjust the bends in the flower's petals until the hole in the stigma lines up with the hole in the flower, and they are touching at these holes.

If everything is to acceptable and fits together well enough, we can move to painting and assembly!

Step 7: Completing the Flower

The spray paint we are using should be rust-proof no primer outdoor paint, just to make things easy and long-lasting. Paint the stigma yellow or red, the flower whatever color you want (other than green, yuck) and the stem a dark leafy green.

Once the paint has dried for 24 hours, place a nylon washer in the stigma, over the hole at the bottom, and thread the screw though the washer and the hole. Hold the screw in place while you thread another nylon washer onto it, then the petals, then another (third) washer, then through the hole in the top of the stem. Now put on a fourth nylon washer and a lockwasher for good measure, and a nut. Tighten the nut down nice and snug.

So, to clarify, the progression is washer -> stigma -> washer -> petals -> washer -> stem -> washer -> lockwasher -> nut. Tighten until everything can't wiggle or rotate on the bolt.

Jam the pointy end in a garden and enjoy. Does not require watering or sunlight!

I started with these metal flowers I found at Hobby Lobby. All the wall decor was 50% off the day I was there.

In addition to metal flowers, here are the supplies I used:

Rebar (3/8 inch diameter) available in assorted lengths

Metal Conduit (1/2 inch diameter) about 4 – 6 inches per flower

Tube / pipe cutter

Drill

Sheet metal screws

E6000 adhesive

Clear spray sealer, optional

How to “Grow” Whimsical Garden Flower Stakes from Metal Wall Art | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #garden #flowers #DIY

To make the metal flowers into garden stakes, we used rebar that we already had. If you’re not familiar with rebar, it’s used for concrete reinforcement and commonly used for stakes in the garden. You can find it with the building supplies near the concrete at the home improvement store. It comes in various lengths and in 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch diameter widths. Rebar will acquire a rusty patina over time which I prefer. :)

We purchased a 5 foot length of 1/2 inch metal conduit for $2.68, found in the electrical department at Lowe’s. You’ll only need a foot or less for two stakes so you’ll have some leftover for another project.You’ll also need atube or pipe cutter which my hubby already had. A tube cutter is easy and safe for anyone to use, rotating the cutter and scoring the pipe until it breaks, about 6 rotations for the conduit.

Next, drill a hole for a screw to fit, about a half an inch of down from one end of your cut piece of conduit. Tip: A piece of tape on your conduit will help prevent your drill bit from slipping on the metal surface while drilling.

Add your screws to your cut pieces of conduit. The screws will serve as a “stop” to hold the conduit on the end of your rebar garden stake.

How to “Grow” Whimsical Garden Flower Stakes from Metal Wall Art | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #garden #flowers #DIY

Now you’re ready to glue your conduit to your flowers. I used E6000 for a permanent, waterproof bond.

How to “Grow” Whimsical Garden Flower Stakes from Metal Wall Art | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #garden #flowers #DIY

E6000 will bond to metal, glass, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, masonry and concrete, as well as many plastics. It will not break down or become brittle with temperature extremes. You can find it at the craft store or home improvement store.

How to “Grow” Whimsical Garden Flower Stakes from Metal Wall Art | ©homeiswheretheboatis.net #garden #flowers #DIY

Add plenty of adhesive so you have good contact to bond the round surface of the conduit to the flat surface of the metal flower. I used a piece of tape to hold the conduit in place and prevent it from rolling until it was set. E6000 begins setting in approximately 10 minutes with a full cure time between 24 and 72 hours, depending on the temperature and humidity.

I waited a day and half before “planting” my flowers to make sure the adhesive was cured and the conduit would hold.

Your metal flowers may fade or acquire a rusty patina over time. To protect the finish of the flower, you can give them a couple of coats clear spray sealer, matte or gloss, whatever you prefer.

I decided it needed a makeover, so I picked up some spray paint at Lowe’s to give it a refresh and similar look to the galvanized finish the other flowers had. I found Rust-Oleum Universal All Surface Flat Antique Nickel and gave it a couple of light coats.
