I got a great deal on sheets of craft metal at the flea market. My first project with it is this metal garden marker.
I cut a piece of metal 1”x4” and stamped “Lavender” with my Making Memories punch set. I rolled the ends on a small stick and painted the letters…well, lavender. The post is 18 gauge steel wire that I rolled at one end, added a purple bead and then bent into a hook shape…done.
