linen sheets How To Stamp Metal custom anniversary gifts

Every now and then, I’;m on a local ABC morning show called AMNW. ?I’;m their “;creative blogger”; and I taught Helen, the morning show host how to stamp metal this month…;…;.all in 4 to 6 minutes. I love the people and surprisingly I don’;t get nervous. ?I only get nervous thinking I’;m going to forget to bring everything and then setting up. Stamped metal is so popular for jewelry making, but I love stamping on old pieces of silverware. TCL is full of easy DIY projects like How to Make Ric Rac Flowers.

I’;ve been a fan of Stamped Metal Jewelry for a long time. ?I have a few friends online that do it for a living and I can tell youlinen sheets, I’;d starve. ?I have mastered the VERY simple aspects of this craft, making stamped silverware, washers, dog tags…;…;using just letters and numbers. ?I’;ll leave the fancy cute stuff up to my friends.

I made these cute stamped metal drink charms. I used blank metal pieces, but you could also use washers. (I also made other drink charms you may like that are not stamped) I’;ve also seen people stamp on metal or copper plant stake markers. (affiliate link)

My favorite as mentioned is stamping on old antique silverware. Frame them, place a few in a mason jar, or use as a plant marker.

If you saw our Summer 2016 catalog, we bet you couldn’t help but swoon over the dining room designed by Entertaining Expert and Better Homes & Gardens Editor, Eddie Ross. This colorful space featured Square Back Louis Chairs in a vibrant red and magenta animal print, peony pink curtain panels, and bold art. We thought we’d share how to get this look in your own home.

It took some persuasion, but we finally got our Senior Director of Merchandising Phil Lancaster, or “The Professor,” on the podcast! Phil knows it all, teaches us some furniture history, tells us all about how furniture is made, what you need to look for, and generally schools us on the nitty gritty details of furniture and antiques. If you’re wondering how to look for quality in your next furniture piece, this is the episode you need to listen to.
