Uncommon Yet Brilliant Uses For Forks In Your Home And Garden
Thanks to the pliability of old metal forks, you can use them to build the most attractive fruit bowls — ones that combine style and functionality, and make excellent conversation pieces. You can use the bowls on your kitchen counter or display them on the table in your dining room.
To create the silverware fruit bowl, start at the base and create a “stand” by crossing two forks, gluing them together. Arrange the forks, and other cutlery pieces, so that they touch one another, being sure to add a dollop of glue anywhere they intersect. Branch out from the base to create the sides of the bowls by placing some forks straight up and down and intersecting others at an angle (this is where you can get creative). Again, you’ll need to add glue anywhere the forks touch. It’s also ideal to glue the tines down to prevent accidental pokes. Tip: You can make this fruit bowl using forks, knives, and spoons — whatever utensils if you prefer.
