Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is considered to be a timeless classic, and Tim Burton’s movie (out this week) has brought about new interest in the peculiar tale of logic and fantasy. But fans have been inspired by Alice and the bizarre, nonsensical world of Wonderland since the book’s publication in 1865. Here are ten fan-made crafts which show tribute to the world down the rabbit hole and beyond the looking glass.
