Floral Plant Stakes

Think outside the box with this fantastic craft for spring. Floral Plant Stakes from Linda Peterson add a whimsical touch to any garden. Use a flower die to cut out each flower. Leave these florals up all year - they won't wither away when the weather changes. You can even use soda cans to create cool designs and trim your trash.
