The only thing I love more than bacon, is finding new, creative ways to go about enjoying bacon and incorporating it into seemingly everyday activities!

The other day I looked over to my lampshade and thought “Hey, that lampshade looks really cool. But you know what would make it an even cooler lampshade? Bacon. Lots, and lots of bacon.” And so a wonderful idea was born, here are the top 7 most creative uses of bacon:

1. Bacon Lampshade

Of course this had to be number one. KmKelley617 on Flickr actually realized my bacon-lampshade dream. Fantastic stuff! I’m getting one for my room. He shows you step by step how to actually assembly a bacon lampshade.

2. Candied Bacon Fudge

Candy. Bacon. Fudge. Enough said? I think so.

3. Bacon Flavoured Envelopes

This has to be the number one reason to ever consider still sending snail mail. I might even lick this stuff just for the heck of it. Kidding, that would be totally weird…

4. Bacon Martini

Spice up your martini experience and add some bacon to the mix!

5. Maple Bacon Coffee

Seriously, it’s coffee. And bacon. Let me try that again: bacon. Coffee. If this isn’t a match made in heaven, I don’t know what is!

6. Bacon Roses

Entirely edible and entirely awesome. A bouquet of flowers made completely out of bacon is both aesthetically pleasing and pleasing to one’s stomach.
