Mark Montano's "Big-Ass Book Of Crafts" is literally a really big and heavy book of craft, but not without good reason, as it contains over 150 how-to projects. Covering everything from homeware and clothing to artwork and beauty treats, there are dozens of useful and practical ideas to keep the craftiest fingers occupied.
The book also has a bunch of quirky and off-the-wall projects too. Including a chandelier made from twigs and duct-tape furniture for your living room.
With so many projects, there's definitely something for everyone. This book will leads to days and days of craft-filled entertainment. It may be big, but it justifies it's over-sized space on the bookshelf.
