Wallpaper Crafts - Faux Metal Plant Stakes
Create a faux metal plant stack, also known as a plant poke, using nothing more than scrap pieces of wallpaper and glue. Any color or design of wallpaper or wallpaper trim are prime candidates for this project. Allow one hour to complete the project.
The process is very similar to making faux antique garden stakes that changes the appearance of brown packaging paper or a brown paper sack to look like vinyl. Less tacky glue is used and the results change the appearance of the wallpaper into a thin metal. The color from the wallpaper adds dimension under the finish and enhances the appearance of the flower stake.
Things You'll Need:
Wallpaper scraps, minimum of two 4-by-4-inch squares
Faux metal plant stake pattern, optional
Wooden plant stakes
Aleene's Super Thick Tacky Glue
Taper candle with candle holder
2, napkins or paper towels
Step 1 - Draw a 3 to 3 1/2-inch design such as a flower, butterfly, bumble bee or dragonfly on the back of a 4-inch square piece of wallpaper. Another option is to print the plant stake pattern attached to this article. Cut the desired pattern from the paper to create a paper template. Center the template on the back of a 4-inch square of wallpaper. Trace around the outside edge of the template. Set the template aside.
Step 2 - Place the 4-inch square with the plant stake drawing on top of a second 4-inch square of wallpaper. Sandwich the colored front of the wallpaper in the center of the stack.
Step 3 - Hold the two pieces of wallpaper together firmly. Cut through both layers of wallpaper along the edges of the plant stake design.
Step 4 - Separate the two cut designs. Turn both cut shapes and place them on a flat work surface so the back of the wallpaper is facing up.
Step 5 - Squeeze a line of white glue approximately 1/16-inch from the edges of both cutouts. Squeeze a zigzag line of glue over the remaining portion of the cutouts.
Step 6 - Place one end of the wooden plant stake so the top end is centered in the middle of one cutout. Turn the second cutout over so the glue is on back. Place it directly over the first cutout, sandwiching the wooden plant stake between the two pieces of wallpaper.
Step 7 - Press the two pieces of wallpaper together. Slide the edges of the cutouts so the align with one another. Press the wallpaper cutouts around the wooden plant stake. Continue to work with the wallpaper cutouts until the edges doe not separate. Place in a safe location to dry for 30 minutes.
Step 8 - Cover the entire surface of both sides of the wallpaper cutout with Aleene's Super Thick Tacky Glue. This particular bottle of glue has a brush attached to the lid. Open the glue and brush a liberal amount of glue on both sides of the wallpaper cutout. Make sure to place glue on the cut edges to totally encase the wallpaper in a glue covering. Place in a safe location to dry completely. This will take from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the humidity and temperature of the room.
Step 9 - Place a taper candle on a flat work surface. Light the taper candle.
Step 10 - Hold the wallpaper cutout approximately 1/4-inch above the flame. Move the cutout continually to coat the surface with black soot from the candle. Flip the cutout and repeat the process on the remaining side. Turn the cutout so it is perpendicular with the candle flame. Hold the edges of the cutout just above the flame. Rotate the cutout until the entire edge is covered with black soot.
Step 11 - Place a napkin on a flat work surface. Place the wallpaper cutout on the napkin. Wipe the soot from the surface of the cutout with a second napkin. Move the napkin in a circular motion to remove the soot and polish the surface. Flip the wallpaper cutout over and repeat the process on the opposite side.
Step 12 - Place the newly created faux metal plant stake in your favorite plant.
Tip: Place a layer of glue over the wooden plant stake and use the same process to create a shiny faux metal surface.
