This super-simple project is an easy way to display name cards, menus, labels for buffets, etc., with a great vintage vibe. I’ve called these place card holders, but they can hold anything–I even display my business cards in one of these.

Step 1: Using a pair of pliers, bend the outer tines of a fork forward until they are perpendicular to the stem.

Step 2: Bend the inner tines backward until they are perpendicular to the stem. Work with all tines until the fork will balance well.

Step 3: Using the pliers, add a bit of a curve to the outer tines. You can make these into elaborate curves, or keep them simple as pictured. This will stop whatever paper products you display from slipping off the holder.
