How to Make Magnetic Stamped Forks (Photo Display)
Stick a fork in it …
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.
What to do to remedy this situation?
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 magnets like these onto the back of each fork
Let dry for 24 hours
4) Bend the outer two tines up a bit by putting something flat (like a butter knife) under the outer tines and pushing up
5) Hang on the fridge or somewhere magnetic and add your fave photos, recipes or art
Now my forks feel just as important as my spoons.
Whew – I was worried they would attack me in my sleep.
Love this idea!
What a great idea! I love the stamped forks and spoons. I’ve never tried it, but you have inspired me to give it a try. Now I just need to get my hands on some silver plate utensils!
Have a great weekend,
these are so clever and fun!
Great project Kelly. The picture is priceless!
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!
LOVE this idea! Now to find some cheap silver! Happy New Year! Melissa
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.
Yes, it’s about time to use forks! The girls look so happy and pretty!
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 🙂
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.
I like these ! For some reason, I am not getting your posts through my e-mail any more. I will investigate.
What about the knives?
These are fantastic, Kelly! What a great gift idea, too.
The forks are SO cute and that photo is adorable, how fun!
How completely adorable! Love, love, love!! Pining.
I love these! Too cute!
Kelly, this is fantastic! Love it!
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.
What a cute idea, Kelly! I love them and they would make great gifts.
I’ll take 4 🙂 Nice job Kelly!
I love these! I bought all the stuff to stamp…now I just need to get busy 🙂
super cute! ( The forks and the girls!!)
What a fabulous idea! I love how these turned out and your girls are so pretty!
