Recycled finial

I wanted to share this very easy, very quick project with you.   We recently (in the last 2 years) got a Hobby Lobby.  After YEARS of hearing my cousins bargains there.  She lives in the South.    Anyway, it's one of my favorite craft and decor stores.   I don't get there too often, but when I do I'm usually in there a LONG time!  My poor family knows the deal and usually wants me to go there alone. ;)

I bought an adorable wine stopper there that had a crown on it.  Well, I BROKE the cork part off trying to get it out of the wine bottle.    It was too cute to throw away.  So I thought for a minute and came up with this idea.....

 I spray painted one of those plain finials that come on lamps sometimes.  

Then I glued the crown to the finial I spray painted black.

 Voila!  From broken to recycled!  Sometimes the littlest things excite me!!!

I think it makes an ADORABLE finial!  On my thrift store lamp!

I LOVE this idea! I have a lamp that is missing a finial. Thank you for sharing, I've got to keep my eye open for something cute.
I have to drive a couple hours to get to a Hobby Lobby, I haven't been to one in years and I think I was in Texas visiting family the last time I went.

I think that is nothing short of brilliant and if I had one I would break it on purpose!
