Stick a fork in it …

it’s done.

 

I’ve been stamping the heck out of spoons – making the cutest keychains – but all of my vintage forks were feeling neglected.

I think they were even planning a revolt against me if I kept ignoring them.

How to Make Magnetic Stamped Forks – Photo Holders

1) Find vintage silver plate forks at the thrift store or on ebay (stamping won’t work on stainless steel)

2) Stamp the forks using my How to Stamp Silver method

3) Use E-6000 to glue two heavy duty magnetsย like theseย onto the back of each fork

Let dry for 24 hours

  1. This is super sweet! I need magnets that are cute for my fridge – have for a long time – this takes out two birds with one stone – magnets and a great way to display the stuff that gets taped to the fridge!

  2. I tried using a fork to hold a recipe card once and just managed to mangle my recipe. It never even occurred to me to bend the fork tines. Doh! You’re so smart! I love your magnetic fork idea. Inspired.

  3. I just love the look of silver stamping. Using forks and adding magnets is such a cool idea to get the vintage look with functionality. What pretty photos of the girls, it looks like they’re having a ball ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Love this! Great idea. I’ve been on the lookout for old forks. Now I know to make sure they are silver plate and not stainless steel:) Thanks.

  5. What a great idea to put magnets on the back! I made the mistake of trying to bend one of my metal forks from Ikea, craft fail. Definitely need vintage, lighter weight metal.
