25 Times People Breathed Life Into Everyday Things and Turned Them Into Art

2 years ago

They say that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. But then again, so does art. What may look like just an ordinary, everyday thing to someone, may be shaped into something extraordinarily beautiful by others. Like a dead tree whittled into something mythical. Or a rock pile turned into funny little things.

We at Bright Side adore how these Redditors came across something you see every day and crafted them into stunning pieces of art. Because when it comes to creativity, there are no boundaries.

1. Sculpture trapped inside a tree

2. “I made a piece of jewelry for my girlfriend out of ordinary pasta.”
