There are some really handy, creative people out there. You really have to be impressed by them. Innovative people are the ones who have made our lives so great. They think outside of the box, which is a talent not everyone has.
I am not particularly crafty myself, but I love looking at the creations of people who are crafty, creative, and artistic.
Here are fifteen examples of really creative things people have made.
1. The Plant Shelf
Someone made this shelf for their plants, and it is obviously spider web themed. It is a great look, honestly.
I don’t know who made it, but I kind of want it. I am assuming the creator is a fan of spiders, which is unusual; most people are at least a little afraid of spiders. There is a condition called arachnophobia, which is when people are abnormally afraid of them. Admittedly, they can be strange-looking things, but there’s really nothing to be too afraid of. Very few of them pose any real risk to human beings. It is possible that, in the future, spider venom will be used in medicinal ways, so we should probably be grateful they are around.
We should also be grateful for the fact that we wouldn’t have the superhero Spider-Man if it weren’t for spiders; there have been a lot of great movies made about Spider-Man. Admittedly, there have also been a few terrible ones.
2. The Phone Holder
This particular phone holder was crafted by a person who really likes “Game of Thrones”, apparently.
Even if you don’t watch the show, you’re likely familiar with the “Game of Thrones” television show, which is immensely popular. Even if you haven’t watched an entire episode, there is a chance you have seen clips online.
The award-winning show actually started back in 2011, and the critics have given it a lot of praise, although it has been criticized by some for its violence. The last season, which was its seventh, ended in 2017. The final season will begin in 2019.
The show stars several actors you might have heard of, including Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, and Diana Rigg.
3. The Minecraft Block
This Minecraft block grows, which is fantastic. The kid to whom this playroom belongs is a lucky kid, and he or she is obviously a huge fan of Minecraft. The parent or parents, too, are clearly fans.
A lot of people are fans of Minecraft, though. The game has won numerous awards, and well over 100 million copies of the game have been sold since it was released in 2011. It is actually one of the best-selling video games of all time. Tens of millions play it every month, and it will probably be around for a long time to come. It is fair to say that the brand is worth billions of dollars.
4. The Mirror
This mirror is apparently powered by Raspberry Pi, which is neat. Personally, I think regular old mirrors work just fine, but I can see why a creative person who really loves technology might make this.
It appears as if this picture was taken on December 25th, so maybe the young woman in the image got a present for Christmas. She is also apparently in Philadelphia, PA. I find it hard to believe it was so warm there on Christmas Day, but I suppose it is possible. Also, it was raining. You sort of want snow on Christmas, not rain.
Whether it was a gift or she made it herself, the young woman certainly looks happy.
5. The Mason Jars and the Speakers
Someone who is very clever and apparently has a much better grasp of science figured out a way to make speakers using mason jars. That is very impressive.
I had no idea that such a thing was possible. I have heard of people making speakers in other ways, but this is a new one. If someone went through so much trouble, I bet they work wonderfully. You have to wonder what that person wanted to listen to, though.
6. The Television and the Fish
Do you remember how televisions used to be enormous? If you don’t, you are likely pretty young. Also, years ago, you could get televisions repaired. There were businesses devoted to television repair. You could also get typewriters repaired, which is even stranger.
These days, when your television breaks, you just scrape together enough money to buy another one. They were different times, truly. Televisions, even modest ones, used to cost a small fortune.
The old televisions had a strange appeal to them, though. They didn’t really look like appliances. They looked like proper pieces of furniture.
Some clever person decided to turn this old television into an aquarium, which is neat. It is also the set to “Seinfeld”, which makes it even neater.
“Seinfeld”, of course, is the classic sitcom from the 1990s. Technically, it debuted in 1989, but it was most successful during the 1990s. It is considered one of the more influential sitcoms ever, as well as one of the greatest. There were nine seasons of the show, and there are a lot of people out there who would like to see another one. Unfortunately, that does not seem likely, but hope definitely springs eternal in this case.
7. The Lamp
This particular lighting fixture was made using copper pipe and a lamp from IKEA. You simply have to be impressed by the design. The copper pipe really does add a certain flare to the whole thing, I think.
I am pretty sure that almost everyone is familiar with IKEA. Most of us have bought furniture from IKEA at one point in our lives; it is, after all, the largest furniture retailer in the world, and it has been for a decade or so. It was founded back in the 1940s in Sweden, and there are now over 400 stores. Those stores can now be found in almost 50 countries, which is truly impressive. Almost 200,000 people work for the company, and the company makes billions of dollars every year.
8. The Storage For the Wine
This is definitely a clever way for wine to be stored. You have to give a lot of credit to the person who came up with this. The person who made this definitely enjoys wine.
People have been drinking wine for thousands of years, so it is clearly a pretty popular beverage. It deserves to be stored properly. It has been associated with many religions over the years, including the religion of ancient Egypt and the Romans.
Most wine is made from grapes, of course, but it can also be made from others things, including rice and cherries.
9. The Playhouse
If your parents are willing to buy you a playhouse and put it in their yard, then you are a lucky kid. Those things are not cheap.
In this case, the playhouse was made by hand, which is fantastic. Someone clearly put a lot of time and effort into this project, and it definitely shows. I am guessing that the child’s favorite colors are pink and purple.
10. The Waterfall
I would really like to know what inspired the person who created this. It sort of looks like something you might see in “The Elder Scrolls” series to me, but I just can’t be sure.
It must have taken forever to make, but the end result was definitely worth the effort. It is definitely very pretty. This takes a lot of genuine talent. Few of us are remotely talented enough to pull this one off, I am sure.
I wonder if guests to the home truly appreciate the effort that went into this.
11. The Pineapple and the Lamp
Somehow, a pineapple was turned into a lamp. I’m not sure I would have believed that to be possible; evidently, though, it is true.
When you think about people making advanced objects from unusual objects, you might think about The Professor character from the classic American sitcom “Gilligan’s Island”. He was able to make radios from coconuts. However, for reasons unclear, he was unable to fix a boat.
When people think about The Professor, they typically think of actor Russell Johnson, who died back in 2014. He was best known for that role, but he starred in other things, including the western television series “Black Saddle”, which aired from 1959 to 1960.
12. The Tub Shelf
If you just happen to be one of those people who enjoys lingering in a tub, you need one of these. Unfortunately, it was handmade, so I do not think it is commercially available.
It would be great if it was, though. Who doesn’t want to watch a program on a smartphone while drinking a glass of wine in the tub? The space for the candles makes everything even better.
The person who made this definitely knows how to enjoy life.
13. The Bookcase Door
I love this one so very much. I always thought it would be fun to have a secret door in my home; unfortunately, I have never really been in the position to have one.
In particular, I love that it is all actually part of a bookcase. That seems like something that comes from a mystery novel. I didn’t realize that people actually have them, but some people apparently do.
The fact is it was built by the owner of this home makes the whole thing a lot better.
14. The Engagement Ring
I don’t really understand how this happened. I am no jeweler, after all, and I’m not particularly handy. Someone, though, made an engagement ring. It also turned out lovely. That is fantastic.
It probably saved the person who made it quite a bit of money. Engagement rings do not have to be expensive, but they frequently are. For example, there are engagement rings out there that cost well over $40,000. I have no idea why anyone would buy such a thing, but there are also wedding gowns out there that cost thousands of dollars, and they are only worn once. I can’t really tell the difference between a great engagement ring and a good one, but that’s just me.
At the very least, though, a person tends to wear their engagement ring for the rest of their life.
Weddings, at least in certain parts of the world, cost a small fortune. What person in their right mind spends tens of thousands of dollars on what is essentially a glorified party? I understand that every little girl grows up dreaming of her perfect wedding, but don’t many of them also grow up dreaming of owning their own unicorn?
