Top 10 Strange and Unusual Ways to Fill a Hole

What I loved about my post “Top 10 Lego Wall Repairs” is that replacing house bricks with Lego ones kind of made sense! Concrete bricks, Lego bricks it is all roughly the same shape. Call it art, call it crazy, call it whatever you like, but filling a hole with something other than what it should be is fun…

It was this image that first inspired this post, so it seemed fitting to start with it. Filling a hole in the wall with Lego not only looks great, but it also adds a much-needed touch or colour to something that otherwise might not get any.

What better way to fill a hole in the wall than to fill it with a cuddly toy! The story behind this  is that after being nagged to fill a hole in the wall by his wife, the husband shoved a toy into it and took this image to send to her. Needless to say it quickly went viral once it was posted onto her Facebook wall, and he just as quickly became single.

The older Nokia phones we often called bricks, they would take just about anything you threw at them and were even known to work after being blown up! So some Students decided that the old Nokia brick should become just that by filling in a hole in the wall.

Town birds, particularly Doves and pigeons will often make a nest in holes in walls and chimneys, so much more than often you will see them nesting in any random wall hole.

Pizza makes everything better! Except of course when it comes to DIY. This botched job done by some Students in London might well be funny, but it is also utterly useless.

Do you have a hole in the wall or door? Then why not print a picture out of Jack Nicholson in The Shining saying “Here’s Johnny!” and stick it in the hole! Sure it will get a few laughs but it is not going to get it fixed.

The problem with bricks is that they are often hard and cold, so this is where Juliana Santacruz Herrera steps in and fills in holes all around Paris with braided strips of colourful fabric! Not only does it look great, but it is a lot softer on the feet as well.

Well, not real gold of course. Over in LA, USA a graphic designer has been filling holes in walls using gold paper folded in 3D. Not only does it look like real gold, it also has that sort of natural forming look. Beautiful and simple amazing.
