I can’t really make fun of IT if I don’t know what IT is…

Take a stab at it. What do you think this is supposed to be? Am I missing something, because nothing is coming to mind. It’s described as: This unique hand felted Cafetiere Coffee cosy is made with just merino wool, soap and water combined with time and energy! Hand felted and seamless it is made […]

Not for the squeamish ones. You asked for a warning, there it is.

Squeamish or not. These is something terribly wrong with this. The *art* of taxidermy really knows no bounds, does it? I don’t know, but I don’t think the crystal encrusted effects really anything to diminishing the horror. *shudder* {source} Sam and Karen hail from none other than, where they prove on an almost daily […]

Lawn Ornaments Are So Two Thousand and Late

Craigslist is a beautiful thing.  Need a sprinkler? From the listing: I built this guy last Friday & used him to water the lawn all day Saturday. People driving past, gawked at him like they had never seen a guy vomiting a steady stream of water all over the place. I put an ad to […]

My name is Octopussy.

What the WHAT!? I can’t stop staring at those eff’n eyes. They seriously skeeve me the frig out. I think I want this chandelier in the hallway outside my kids’ rooms. Yes. I said chandelier. Seriously. RAAAWWWWWWWR. GET BACK IN YER BED!!!! From the listing: This octopus chandelier is made from sculpted arms and head, […]

Not a Creature Was Stirring, Not Even These Mice

This? This is the ultimate Craftastrophe. At first glance, they look like some pretty innocent, though heavy-looking earrings. Upon closer inspection though, I find offense with the red beady eyes, the oddly coloured ears and the thought of those tails tickling my shoulders a la Squirrel Feet Earrings makes my back teeth hurt.


This one just makes me laugh. Manically. I am buying one and wearing it with my sexist* lingerie. Hmm… I wonder if she makes bacon ones? From the listing: A fun and whimsical broach that will add a unique flair to any outfit. Pannies Broaches are made from real fried eggs that are entirely encased […]

Hideous Hannah Has Lost Her Head

Hideous Hannah went down to Savannah, holding her head in her hands. She tried a bandana, tied around her neck-a, but her head kept rolling cross lands. (her nose looks like Michael Jackson’s did.) I kind of love this and think it would be perfect for Avitable’s Halloween party! {source} Sam and Karen hail from […]

Think You’re Marrying the Man of Your Dreams?

Oh HAI!  We were at BlogHer in Chicago last weekend (where we won a weapon, er award from SocialLuxe) and so we completely forgot about you guys last week.  We’re shallow and fickle like that.  Something shiny comes along and we forget allll about you.  Being the fair-weather friends we are, we’re back this week, […]

I Wanna Have Another Baby Just So I Can Hang This In It’s Room*

LOVE. Thanks Steen! {source} *Not really. I would rather skewer my eyes with rusty knitting needles than have another baby. Wait, do knitting needles even rust? Well you know what I mean. I’m too old to be pregnant again. or deal with sleepless nights and diapers and wipes and sore boobs and cracked nipples. I […]

Dun Dun Dun Dun, Dun Dun, Dun Dun…Can’t Touch This!

Awwwww…isn’t that cute!  Somebody got a sewing machine for her birthday!  Aren’t you a big girl, yes you are! I think we can call this Girl Interrupted Couture, yes?  Want some chicken for under your bed? Thanks Aki! {source} Sam and Karen hail from none other than, where they prove on an almost daily […]

Gag Me With a Hairy Spoon!

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.
