I used a vintage silver fork (this one is dated 1847) and using heavy duty pliers bent the tines to form this ATC holder. I had recovered these forks from going to the scrap yard during metal collection. I have begun making several and they will be for sale in my Etsy shop later this week.

The Scan turned out a bit blurry on the bottom due to the real shells that are glued on to the bottom. I took a canvas and adhered torn music paper using Mod Podge and then did the painting part using regular acrylic paints. I got the sand effect on the bottom by first using gesso and then layering on the sandy colors. The real shells are ones that I picked up at the beach in South Carlolina when we were there for Brittany's boot camp graduation in November. Another completed piece by me ~ YEAH!!
