There’s something called The IKEA effect. It describes how people tend to value an object more if they make it with their own two hands. The people below have either come up with practical solutions, made works of art, or exposed their outside-the-box ideas.

When inventive creations come into the mix, Bright Side saves the best ones and shares them with you, and we’re curious to know which one of these is your favorite.
