How do metals react with concrete?
I'm making lots of leaves to donate to an organization for a fundraiser. Someone suggested putting a stake on the back side so the leaves will stand up. I'm rejecting that idea on the basis of too much pressure put on the leaf and possibly breaking it.
My idea is to use two links of sturdy chain. Most of one link would be embedded and the other one would be left loose so it could be put over, perhaps a piece of rebar bent so that the tip would point up, then a right angle for an inch or two, then another right angle going down (into the ground). I suppose the loose link could also be considered to be a hanger of sorts. Depending on the length of the rebar, the leaf could float above plants in the garden or sit on the ground.
So my question is, would the chain react badly with the concrete?
Hope I didn't confuse too many people with my description.
