PROJECT HOME: CORK-FILLED HURRICANE LAMP

May 03, 2012

You have to start worrying about yourself when you buy fifty champagne corks on eBay. Sam just rolled his eyes.

But I had a good reason! Having seen this image on Pinterest and pinning it to my Interiors board I wanted to recreate in my own home.

My beautiful hurricane lamp* came from notonthehighstreet.com (have to say, it's one of my favourite websites to browse on a Sunday afternoon) and I just searched 'used corks' on eBay to find a job lot of corks to fill it with. I love it, it's pretty, creative, foodie/drinkie and wonderful. I can't wait until I have a house which I can fill with gorgeous little details like these. I hope you love it as much as I do!

    I love this, my parents have been collecting champagne corks since they got married, I'll definitely have to show this to my mum as it would be a lovely way to create something gorgeous but also remind them of lots of memories xxx
