Make a Metal Arbor
Frame a walkway or make an entrance to an outdoor room with this graceful metal arbor you can make in an afternoon.
Follow the steps that begin on the next slide.
Materials You’ll Need:
–Wire cutters and protective gloves
–Eight 10-foot lengths of rebar
–Seventy-two 8- to 10-inch lengths of bare copper wire
–Seventeen 4-foot lengths of rebar
Measure in 2 feet from one end of each 10-foot length of rebar. Mark the spot with masking tape. Bend each piece of rebar around a tree trunk at the 2-foot mark to form a partial arch. Push two rebar lengths at least 1 foot into the ground opposite each other. The arched ends should slightly overlap at the top.
Bind the overlapping ends together with a piece of wire. Repeat with the remaining lengths of rebar, spacing the four resulting arches about 15 inches apart
Use the 4-foot lengths of rebar to form horizontal cross bars. Space them an equal distance apart, and secure rebar with a piece of wire wherever two bars cross
