Lego bricks aren't just for building mini cities (or real-life houses, or kitchens, or USB hubs) anymore, they can be used to make art! These celebrity portraits, for example, are all made from black, white and grey Lego bricks. Pieced together by a Lego fanatic who started his own company, you can get your hands on a custom Lego mosaic blueprint for yourself or a friend just by sending in a photo.
Called Brixels, the company will send you your own customized Lego map and all the pieces you'll need to complete your DIY project. This would be great for a hands-on holiday gift for your crafty friends, or as a cute gifting project to keep your nieces and nephews occupied at Christmas. But, if you don't have the time or patience to dive into a jigsaw puzzle-like task, Brixels can build your art and ship it completely finished. Prices start at around $300, so choose your photos wisely — there's no going back after it's printed!
