Ball Jars… Is there anything they can’t do? Instructables member OutdoorGirl16196 brings us a fun and creative way to put those jars, and all of your old power tools, to good use. Inspiration and step-by-step instructions can be found here.
Brought to us by Dutch photographer, Ashkan Honarvar, Faces 5 is a photo series that creates seemingly gnarly facial injuries with cake and candy. In place of blood and actual innards, icing and sprinkles are used to create imagery that’s a little easier to take — very little.
As described on the artist’s website, “This series constitutes Ashkan Honarvar’s search for an identity and the physical and psychological wounds inflicted on soldiers by war… Ashkan Honarvar used existing pictures of young First World War soldiers with facial mutilations.”
Artist Kristen Cumings recreated a few classic paintings using thousands of jelly beans. Commissioned by Jelly Belly for their Jelly Belly Masterpieces of Confectionary Art series, Cumings spent about 50-60 hours on each 4′ x 6′ mural.
Spray adhesive was used to stick the beans to canvas, then the finished product is coated with acrylic for protection, and to discourage licking of the art. A few of the recreations include The Mona Lisa, Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night, and Johannes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Brought to us by Brooklyn-based art student Britta Hope, The Candy Bike was conceived for a 3D design project. With the tagline of “Treat Yourself,” the bike was designed to make you want to lick the wheels and handlebars, but it’s actually meant to be a cupcake delivery vehicle — and help score an “A” in 3D.
This Cinco de Mayo, besides having some bad Tex-Mex and watered-down Margaritas, you can whip up a batch of Piñata Cookies. Brought to us by She Knows, the colorful cookies are a fun way to get into the spirit, without having to climb a tree, or risk getting whacked with a wiffle ball bat.
