Flower Pot Stake Decorations Scroll Saw Patterns.

Download the Pattern Below

These flower pot stakes can add some decoration to your flowers. I cut them from 1/4" Baltic birch plywood so they are light. It is easy to stack cut a few at a time. In the writeup below about Google Image Search, you can find information to make just about an unlimited number of patterns like these.

Once you find a graphic just draw in a stake and you have a new pattern. You can draw in detail for veining at the scroll saw but it is not required. Simple shapes can work just as well. Read the next section for more details.

Do not abuse Google Image but don't ignore it either.

Do you want thousands of free patterns? Here is a tip that can give you all the patterns you could ever want(There is a catch). Google has an image search capability. After you type in a subject you want to search for and press enter, the top of the page will have choices. One of the choices is "Image". If you click that link Google will show you images based on your search word. 

To find simple shapes that can be printed and cut you can use a search like "animal silhouette". This search will bring up black and white images of animals. Click here to see that link.

Here is the catch. Many, if not most of the images you will find are owned by someone and are not available for commercial use. You would not want to use the image in a project that you intended to sell. If you are just making a one-off project to give to grandma, no one will likely get too upset. Just be sure not to abuse this feature because it can come with serious legal consequences. 

Some of the images are creative commons or public domain. Do your research of the license if you use the image. 

Here is another search phrase. "public domain silhouettes". This will help you zero in on images that you can use. Just don't assume they are public domain. Google gets it wrong many times. Click through the image link and find out for sure.

The next image is an example of a graphic I found using the public domain search. I clicked through the image and it took me to this link at the Public Domain Pictures site. This site is supposed to only have public domain images available. I would say that they are 95% reliable but a few non-public domain images do slip through.
