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.

No idea as to what to do with them..but this begs to be asked.... How in the world did you come to get a bunch of pitchforks without handles??

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.
