Getty Museum Challenge Has You Recreate Famous Art Using Random Household Objects

What do you do when bored in the house? While you could take a virtual tour or try your hand at a new Instagram art class, we've found a fun new activity. The Getty Museum challenge asks people to recreate famous artworks using only household objects - and the results are hilarious.

If you've ever wanted to be the real-life Mona Lisa, now's your chance.

Their instructions only take three steps.

First, you'll need to choose your favorite artwork. Then, you'll have to find three objects laying around the house to use. Then, recreate the artwork with those items.

The Getty Museum is sharing their favorite creations on its page, so it could be your time to shine. *winks* 

Their side by side comparisons of the IRL wonder to your homemade masterpieces is amazing.

One of the most hilarious 'works of art' so far has to be the Madonna and Child. This woman recreated the famous Duccio work with nothing but a simple house towel and her French Bulldog. 

We all know that the only thing better than fine works of art are the doggos who inspire it.

While most of the fan works aren't on the level of Monet, some truly show promise.

Check out this cheeky self-portrait, for example. We can't get over the pogo stick pony!

He even taped his cape to the wall. 

And then there's this creative father and son effort. We literally have no words.

The dad wrote, "@GettyMuseum feeling a bit constricted indoors, so we had to pause for this Nahua-Coyote inspired musing from Florentine Codex Book 11."

If you're feeling inspired, why not make your own creative masterpiece? Take a look around your house and see what you want to use. 

The entire living room could be your canvas! We're loving that creativity isn't canceled.
