Blow your guests away this year when you light up these genuine hand grenades in your living room. The Army surplus grenades have been transformed into oil candles by designer Piet Houtenbos.

They come either in their natural finish or in gold and silver to help them blend in well with your Christmas décor. A little scary, but very unique, they retail for $55-$65 on the artist's site. They can burn for up to 24 hours. Stats for Grenade Oil Lamp Trending: Older & Chilly
