Repurposed Fork Soap Dish

Our friends in New Mexico had a soap holder like this and Chris & I decided to make our own. This would also be the perfect little housewarming gift. 

All you need is a fork, pliers and some strength.

We were thinking of a couple of projects using old silverware, so we bought a bag of it at a thrift store.

First, bend the two outermost prongs away from the middle.

Then you want to bend about halfway down the handle. Then bend up again about halfway from the first bend and the end of the handle. 

If that sounds super confusing, here is a photo of how it should look. 

Then, simply add a small bar of soap!


  1. Too cute!!! I want one. How much strength to ya have to have?? That sounds like the hardest part.
