The DIY craze is still going strong, and most of the time, creating something yourself is a pleasant experience. It feels empowering to knit a nice wool scarf while avoiding having to shell out major bucks to buy one in-store. If you're dedicated enough (and don't mind making a stop at the local arts and craft store) you could even create some cool cross stitch art to put on your walls
For the less creative among us, blogs, books, and podcasts have emerged that provide instructions on how to master the tactile arts. However, certain DIYers have taken the trend a bit too far.
Apparently, you can knit with cat hair, make R-rated origami, and even compost human manure all by yourself. A few special authors have gathered together a wealth of information in order to write books about all these subjects, and many more. If you've ever wanted to know how to paint a rock so it looks like an animal, or are eager to have great intercourse in the afterlife, then you'll love this list.
Handy links have been provided so that you can purchase these DIY manuals for yourself or for close friends.
