Steampunk has become very popular as of lately, not just in books and movies, but in the crafting and bottle lamp making world as well.
What exactly is Steampunk? The folks of The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences explain it this way: “Over the years, steampunk has evolved into more than just a sub-genre of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Steampunk now extends into fashion, engineering, music, and for some, a lifestyle. With the Victorian British Empire or American Wild West as the backdrop, steampunk projects are a challenge of making something elegant out of random bits and bobs.”
Sounds like fun, right? I have seen many ueber-cool bottle creations on Pinterest lately and want to share just a few of my favorites to inspire you. Remember, the “punk” in “Steampunk” comes from going against convention. Creativity and the declaration of one’s individuality, be it through style, gadgets, or attitude, will set you apart. Many of these bottle crafts are for sale via Etsy, click on any of the images to learn more. Enjoy!
