Packed with more than 150 chic, swank, and fabulously creative projects, The Big-Ass Book of Crafts is the perfect activity book for crafters with a sense of adventure — and a little touch of attitude!
Forget crocheted doilies and itchy-kitschy sweaters — style authority Mark Montano (part of the design team for TLC's While You Were Out) has created a mother lode of stylish and imaginative projects that range from a Warholesque faux suede iPod case to all-natural body products to photo-adorned boxer shorts. These crafts are so fantastic, your friends and loved ones might wonder whether you're the secret love child of Martha Stewart (only much, much cooler).
The Big-Ass Book of Crafts is divided into sections that include Outdoorsy (ideas to enhance your backyard), Dishing It Out (decorating plates using different techniques), You've Been Framed (innovative picture framing ideas), and Can I Have a Light? (creating and decorating lamps, lanterns, and chandeliers).
As entertaining to read as it is endlessly inspiring, The Big-Ass Book of Crafts is an essential book for every contemporary crafter's library.
Mark Montano is the host of TLC's 10 Years Younger as well as cohost of the Style Network's My Celebrity Home. He is a contributing editor to CosmoGIRL! magazine, and his weekly column, "Make Your Mark," appears in more than 70 newspapers across the country.
