North Carolina-based artist Jonathan Brilliant turned 60,000 ordinary wooden coffee stirrers into a bigger than life installation.

Using a simple every day item most people take for granted, he created a two-story woven work of art that housed a gorgeous chandelier. This extraordinary feat took 14 days to complete. 

''No adhesive was used and the entire structure holds itself in place because of the tensile strength of 7'' rounded end wooden coffee stirrers. After nearly six months the piece eventually separated and the materials were donated to a local school,'' the artist said.
