craftastrophe

Welcome to the first of many weekly editions of Craftastrophe on Craftster.  To sum Craftastrophe up:

These Craftastrophes aren’t necessarily bad crafts, many are well made and have taken the crafter a lot of time and energy to create; our goal is to showcase those crafts that are funny, weird, strange and make us laugh. We mean no harm and can honestly say that there have been sales for some sellers on various sites due to their craft being featured on this site! We merely want to share the laughs and enjoy the talents of many. Talents which neither of us have.

We’ll be your hosts of all crafts gone wrong, and if you want to submit something to be featured here or at our blog, please contact us with relevant photos, links and credits!

Now on with the Craftastrophes!

I know there are families out there who allow their cats to jump on the dinner table and the counter.  I know there are some families who love their pets so much, they allow said pets to kiss them and their babies.

We have a dog.  I love her to pieces but her tongue never, ever touches my plate, my mouth or my kids.  That’s just the way I am.  I want to make out with my dog just about as much as I want to make out with Carrot Top or Amy Winehouse.  As in NOT AT ALL.  (Though I’m certain my dog’s mouth is cleaner than part of Amy Winehouse’s body.)

When I saw this craft, I had a physical reaction.  You might too.  Feel free to share said reaction, Batman style (KAPOW! BLAM! WRETCH!), in the comments.

From the listing:

Well, lately I’ve been really into resin and I got a mold for a spoon rest for my birthday.  I kept thinking of things I could put in the mold but I kept coming back to the idea of..what would be something you would NOT want your spoon to touch?   So my husband and I came up with a bunch of ideas (which I will make more of them later) and I decided to go with the hair!  It was funny because the day I decided to make this I didn’t have any dog hair around….I just cleaned!  I don’t want to sound gross but if you have a dog you’ll know that dogs shed and sometimes you have hair around…. So I went on a search of the house for dog hair and found a bit hiding behind my dog’s cage…haha.

So anyways, I resined my dog’s hair into the spoon rest..LOL.  So gross…but oh so funny!  Don’t worry the hair is all safely inside the resin and does not touch the spoon!

Thanks for making me choke on chunder, Heather!  At least it wasn’t PUBIC HAIR.

Gag Me With a Hairy Spoon is now for sale!  Thanks Sarah for being such a good sport – we love your craft.  Bid on it here, folks!

    In many ways this isn’t just craft, it’s art…….mainly because it messes with our ideals of proper materials and functionality. This reminded me immediately of this piece, Fur covered teacup and saucer by Oppenheim:

    The big difference I suppose is that you can actually use the spoon rest! Ah, the intersection of art and craft……

    BLORT!

    I love this and I agree with lunamadre – actually thats the first thing I thought when I read/saw it.
    Very nice! I think this will be a fun addition to Craftster.

  7. Violentjayne says:

    lol thats gross and great ! I hope you can find some bugs next time that would be really gross … maybe some plastic bugs lol

    GASP! That’s disgusting and awesome! I can’t help but “want” to see the big hair blob from the bathtub drain immortalized in a resin spoon rest. I know I wouldn’t be able to keep from looking away, but… yeah, it’s definitely something I wouldn’t put a spoon on. Maybe you can get a bunch of teeth?

    Also, please don’t forget the green aspect of this craftastrophe… that dog hair has been saved from the landfill!

    Ha! I would so love to give one of those to my bitchy MIL! Seriously. I speak to her as little as possible after she dissed my dogs a while back. :)
