Cutlery is part and parcel of our daily lives and used in preparing, serving and eating food. The most commonly used items are the¬†knife, fork and spoon.
Let us look at some Do It Yourself (“DIY”) utility out of these regular items. Say old forks and spoons; which can be bent and reshaped to be¬†reused as a total new product.
Here are¬†three different ideas¬†:
1.Hang on Hook: Get your stainless steel spoons and fork.¬†Flatten one side of
the spoon and clamp the other side to a rolling pin.¬†Slowly keep turning the spoon around this until you get¬†a required curve.¬†This could be screwed to a pallet board or even nailed to¬†the back wall near you garden or balcony to hang planters.
2.Key chain : Saw off the head of a spoon or a fork.¬†Now bend the sawed end halfway inwards making it a circle.¬†Slide a key ring in this half circle. Now close this circle into a loop.¬†Slide in your keys into the rings.
3.Name holders: Bend the forks¬†below the head using pliers.¬†The base of this fork should be flattened¬†to stand on its own. Now pull the two¬†centre of the tongs a little behind to¬†stick the name tags with its support.
