We all participated in arts and crafts as a child. Everyone made some sort of sword out of Popsicle sticks or shield out of a plate. But how many of us out there actually made works of art in these bizarre, non-conformist ways?

These pieces of art were created with extremely unorthodox methods and still managed to maintain the label “art.”

Play-Doh Bunnies

These bunnies, pictured above, are all made of Play-Doh. Surprisingly, this exhibit took place all around New York , with bunnies large and small getting in people’s way as they tried to get to work in the morning.

Crayon Bees

While it looks like a crappy pixelized version of a honeycomb, this is in fact a representation of a photo created with crayons. But, unlike most third grade crayon pictures, this one wasn’t drawn with crayons but was made with crayons. Yes – those “pixels” in the image are actually crayon tips. Considering we never managed to keep ours in working order for more than a week, this is a pretty impressive accomplishment.

Sandcastler’s Mordor

This sandcastle was created in a contest for sandcastles in 2007 and won the People’s Choice Award for it. At a staggering nine and a half feet tall, it really is huge, and makes us wonder – what, really, is the point of winning a sandcastling competition? Are there mermaid babes to be had?

Etch-A-Sketch Mona Lisa

Doing complex, and often famous, paintings on an Etch-A-Sketch is a hobby of many. However, it is only a select few who can actually do it right (hell, our best Etch-A-Sketch artist can’t even draw a proper square). But this person decided that they would draw a completely accurate copy of the Mona Lisa… on an Etch-A-Sketch. Upon completion, only one photo was taken before the artist’s older brother promptly ran up and shook it as hard as he could. He was reportedly called “a gaywad”.
