Intro: Make a Bracelet Out of a Fork
All around you, you see jumbles. We have begun to give these jumbles new life.
Starting with turning forks into cute bracelets.
Step 1: What Do You Need?
It's very cheap to make this bracelet. You only need some pliers and a gas burner. Of course you need to have an old fork (with long tines) . For finishing we use sandpaper.
So here's the list:
Step 2: Preparing the Fork and Making the Shape
First, bend two of the tines a bit down like on the picture.
After that, heat the fork so you can bend it easily. Then bend the tines in the shape you want. In this case we use 2 hearts who cross each other.
Step 3: The Top Part
When you are finished making the shape, you can begin to bend it so you can use it as a bracelet. Begin with the top part by heating it. Don't forget to cool it in water!
Step 4: The Lower Part
After bending the top part, you can bend the lower part into the right shape to make the bracelet. Again by heating the fork.
Cool it and try whether it can fit around your arm.
Step 5: The Final Part
Shed the bracelet to make it look clean. This may take a while.
Step 6: Finished
You have now made your own bracelet out of a fork. Have fun with it.
