Here's a metal flower i made. the petals and leaves are u bolts that i bent in a vise, i welded the petals onto a large washer and welded an iron water valve knob onto that for the center part. the stem is made out of a 4 foot long 3/4" bolt. and the spike that goes into the ground is made out of a ford mowing machine blade. if any more info is needed leave a comment and I'll try and help as best i can.
