Picture of HORSE SHOE LETTER HOLDER.

Another great use for horse shoes is a letter holder.  It is great for a man's office.  Simple to make and does not require a lot of tools or things to buy.  You will probably have everything except maybe the horse shoes.  If you have a friend or neighbor that owns horses, chances are they have a few extra they would be happy to give you.  You can purchase them for about a dollar each from a veterinary supply store like Tractor supply.   

Step 1: SUPPLIES

DITTO! The important thing about Gorilla is reading the fine print. I know because I tried it once and did not read it. I was a bit surprised at the outcome. LOL.
