Hi Mojo, you can buy the long and short handles at a hardware store or try Home Depot. I saw a pic of using the fork part to stick decorative Indian Corn on the tings (is that what they're called) and then hung on a fence. You might add a fall garland swirled around the handle for added color. Some folks just hang them on their sheds as decoration with other garden tools.

I saw an ad in a magazine recently where they had a Jack-o-latern holder that was made out of rebar. It looked like a stick man with a pumpkin head. The feet looked like pitch forks, rebar legs and then a long length of rebar coiled up to make the body and straight rebar for arms. I don't remeber the hands, but I bet another set of pitchforks would work. I think the top of the coiled body may have had a metal plate to hold the jack-o-lantern. It was pretty cute.

Hmmm, I would probably use them to border a small or large garden bed or garden box. With the points facing down, pushed down just far enough so that you can still tell they are pitch forks. I think they might look cute all lined up. I wouldn't suggest the other way, with the points up, unless you do not have children or pets that can run and get hurt.

You could also stick a garden stake thru them while they are in the ground.

Hang them on a shed or garage wall? I've seen that done a few times and have wanted to get just one at least to do that with but I can't seem to find them when I'm looking for them! LOL

Have seen them hung on a bathroom or dressing room wall and used as a holder for jewelry - necklaces, bracelets, etc. You could paint to match your decor or leave it more "rustic", if you'd like.

Just regular rakes can be used to hold utensils in the kitchen.

I MAKE LAWN CRITTERS OUT OF USED GARDEEN TOOLS, REBAR, AND WHATEVER OTHER METAL THINGS I CAN FIND. SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE THE MAKINGS OF AN OSTRICH OR TURKEY THERE.
