DIY Fork Photo Display

Bend your fork into a photo holder, it is easy! I’ve seen this made on Pinterest and thought I’d give it a try. It definitely looks more impressive than it is. In addition to the fork you’ll need a flat nose plier.

1. Start with the fork facing away from you (the back of the fork towards you). 2. Bend the 2nd and 3rd prong towards yourself and slightly to the sides. 3. Bend the 1st and 4th prong away from you and slightly to the sides. 4. Use the plier and bend the tips of the 1st and 4th prong. This will keep the photo in place.

    These are great!! Got cheap bendy forks at Goodwill and made displays for some of my sweetheart’s huge collection of antique postcards. Great for displaying Christmas cards on the mantle, too. Thanks!!

    I love these and we want to use them for place cards holders at my daughter’s wedding and as the take home favor. Did you use stainless steel forks. I would like to use old silver plated forks, but am finding it very difficult to actually bend the tines, as well as getting gouges in the silverware from the tool. Would you have any suggestions?

      Hi there Mary, I’ve used a thin and bendable stainless steel fork, which you can find in thrift stores. Though I would recommend old-fashioned silver-plated brass, if you can get your hands on them. They are easy to bend & look really good :-)
