Awesome Things Made Out of Bacon

By on May 20, 2013

I’m sure we can all agree that bacon is great for eating. But did you know it’s also a very aesthetically pleasing artistic medium? Or that it’s capable of being hooked up to oxygen gas and cutting through steel? Here are a few of the greatest, most unique uses of bacon from around the web.

Bacon Roses


Regular roses are just kind of lame, especially when compared to ones you can eat. Next time you need a romantic gift for that special lady in your life, follow these instructions and you’ll have the key to her heart: through her stomach.

Bacon Mug


Why would anyone use a regular old cup when you could drink from a bacon mug? Fill it with some Rogue Maple Bacon Ale for the most bacontastic experience possible.

Starry Bacon Night


Bacon: as exceptionally pleasing to the eye as it is to the tongue.

The Ba-K-47


This guy created a full-size replica of an AK-47 out of bacon. In his own words: “I came up with the BA-K-47, a 1:1 scale AK-47 made out of bacon. It took a total of eight hours to create, a lot of bacon, and a blowtorch… oh yeah, and our good friend beer helped too.”

Flaming Bacon Lance of Death


And this guy used bacon to literally cut through a steel pan. A bacon lightsaber? Could there possibly be anything cooler?

Bacon AT-AT


This specimen of pure awesomeness stands 3 feet tall and contains over 40 pounds of bacon. Here are some additional pictures so you can gaze upon its greatness from every angle.



My mom makes an egg bake every Christmas morning. I’m going to pass this along and tell her she really needs to step up her game next year.

Kevin Bacon


As part of his series of celebrity portraits, artist Jason Mecier created this stunning portrait of Kevin Bacon, crafted entirely out of, fittingly, bacon. His other portraits are also pretty funny (though I’m not sure any are able to top this one).

    So. Much. Bacon. Glorious. Sorry, but I’ve got to go take care of something.
