Contest: Make Art From Starbuck’s Junk

We always knew Starbucks was a hangout for writers and dilettantes. For Wired contributing photographer Dan Winters, it’s also an art supply shop: He used nearly 50 ‘Bucks cups and a crazy number of stirrers to build this, the coolest TIE Fighter ever. “The ribbing on the drink holders reminded me of solar panels,” Winters says. “That instantly registered ‘TIE fighter’ in my head.”

Now we put the challenge to you: What can you make out of the free stuff from Starbucks? Coffee cups from drink purchases are OK, too — you might want to consider multiple stops or asking the manager to sell you a stash. Then build your dream. (Glue, tape, and string are allowed.)

Upload a pic (with instructions on how to make it) on this How-To Wiki page. We’ll feature our favorites in an online slideshow. May the Force (and the nondairy creamer) be with you.
