“That’s It, I’m Craft Shaming”: 83 People Share Crafts So Bad, They Just Had To Shame Them Online

    We are often told that undertaking arts and crafts will bring us a sense of fulfillment, positivity, and relaxation. And in times of the worldwide pandemic, this is all we need. So no wonder so many people have tried making something from scratch, whether baking an infamous hedgehog cake or decorating jeans with whatever they found at home.

    But even if we, as a society, do encourage getting your hands on things and rocking your inner craftsperson, it doesn’t mean you should just do it. And this humorous, satirical Facebook group called “That’s it, I’m craft shaming.” is precisely an answer to why crafts isn’t for everyone.

    Welcome to the not-so-pretty side of the handmade world that often remains hidden behind the tearful expectation vs reality moment. With a whopping 99.4K members, the group is both a horror chamber and a feast for your eyes that collects all the most hideous crafty items found out there.

    And for understandable reasons, these questionable gems rarely get to earn a place in a camera roll. Unless it’s strictly for craft shaming purposes.

    Like do they like to dust all the time? All I can see in my mind is spiders upon spiders all hidden in this and also are these containers not being used? Are they there for just looks? I’m fine with the containers themselves I just don’t understand throwing all this fake greenery around it and stacking them all over the place taking up an entire counter”
