Bullet Bouquets

Nothing says “I Love You” over the holidays to your significant other like a vase of flowers… Made from Federal HST bullets! Bullet Bouquets is a crafty idea spawned from of all places, Reddit.

Bullet Bouquets “Shooter’s Hair Clip”

An individual from Colorado saw someone else create a truly unique Valentine’s Day gift for his significant other. The gift was a billet aluminum flower pot with Federal HST flowers. In less than 3 days,¬†Anthony Zambai turned that Reddit prototype into an entire business. Anthony recounted the endeavor in one simple statement:

I saw an opportunity to fill a need, then did it… REALLY QUICKLY!

Bullet Bouquets “Tie Tack”

Although the flower pots are how Bullet Bouquets have made their mark that is not the end to the creativity. They now also offer hair clips, tie tacks, boutonnieres, barrettes, and magnets to supplement the blooming hollow-points. They even have gone as far as offering “lead-free” items.

For the man or woman who is impossible to buy for and loves firearms, this would make a phenomenal present. Or if you want to be the coolest person at the range next weekend, buy it for yourself.

If you are wondering how somebody could mass produce perfectly deformed Federal HST hollow-points, I will give you a hint… It does not require a scientific lab and a huge pile of money. Anthony shows everyone his strategy in this video:

As you can simply see, if you have a safe environment to shoot into water, it can be done!

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Have you ever wished your hair clips and barrettes could be sharper and contain more lead? Your wait is over.

      I helped a friend who designs and makes jewelry with a similar project – I just suggested that she coat the bullets with a polyurethane or such, to seal the metal and prevent corrosion. And yeah, they could be sharp, but she worked on backings and such so nobody would get Taloned.

    Expanded Federal HSTs in the flower pot, Hornady Critical Defense in the mag and on the table.

    Flowers and Hollowpoints can both blossom in your heart.

    Not even a little tiny bit.

    My daughter got me one of these for my desk, it’s really neat, until somebody knocks it over and .22 cases roll everywhere.

      Hot glue them in there, or just under the top layer of them.

      • Bill

        I’m embarrassed to admit that I never thought of that.
