Fork Bracelet

DIY Fork Bracelet

DSC_0152
Fork + pliers = bracelet! My friend had one of these and I had to try and make it.

Supplies:
-Needlenose pliers
-Sturdy pliers for holding
-Fork, preferably the cheaper kind that bends easier

Step 1: Make sure you have sturdy pliers to hold the fork into place when you are using another pair of needlenose pliers to bend the prongs.

Step 2: Use the needlenose pliers to bend the prongs to your desired shape/design. I have heard that if you heat up the fork with a blowtorch the prongs are more malleable, but I think that technique is a bit extreme unless you are making an extremely complicated design.

Good luck! If anyone makes this, I would love to see what you come up with. :)
