Aled Lewis teamed up with friends and family to retell the Star Wars story via a 30-feet by 13-inch cross-stitched canvas.

London-based photographer Carl Warner uses bits and pieces of food to create incredibly realistic and intricate scenes. Heaps of bread become rugged mountains, cucumbers become tree trunks and cabbage leaves become foliage. Warner and his team assemble the ingredients one piece at a time on a table top, creating interpretations of renowned architectural structures — like the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China, human figures ranging from gondola drivers to cowboys, and sweeping vistas ranging from the London skyline to vast deserts.

Himmelis — little ornaments made out of short strips of straw — are a form of Lithuanian folk art and are crazy popular come Christmas time. And this is a mobile made of seven small decahedrons, one large decahedron and no tape. The artist just pinched the ends to make them fit into each other. She reports that for such a delicate thing, it's surprisingly sturdy.
