Vintage forks transformed

I was out with some friends yesterday for lunch and antique shopping.  We saw several of these picture holders for the old vintage cards.  I have quite a few old card pictures of our  ancestors so I thought I would give it a try.

The forks were 2 and 3 dollars each.  They do require some heavy pliers and I still need more practice but I think the first one came out OK.

The baby is a great aunt of my husbands.

That fork photo holder is the cleverest thing, and that baby in the photo is darling.

What a super idea. Some people just got all the smarts. I cannot think of anything clever like that. Love seeing the older family pictures.

Great idea! Love that sweet picture! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Yours came out great! It is such a fun way to display pictures and old recipes. I've made a few of those and found that silver is the easiest type of fork to bend. I about broke my hand trying to bend a piece of stainless steel flatware! : )

I love these especially when they have a pretty pattern. It does take some practice to get them balanced correctly, but so worth the effort.
