There's fans of arts and crafts, and then there's people that take it to the next level, like Maxim Grew, a photographer out of Brighton, who spontaneously decided to build a Popsicle stick Polaroid one day.

Not content to simply make a model, he decided he wanted it to be a real, working camera. His materials consisted of a Polaroid film holder, some simple wooden Popsicle sticks, card stock, an old thrift-shop camera lens, and a lot of duct tape. He chronicled the construction process in this YouTube video.

It just goes to show that if you really want to be a photographer, the financial gate of entry can be as low as you want it to be. Stats for Popsicle Stick Polaroids Trending: Older & Mild
