"TLC's While You Were Out top designer Mark Montano's wildly anticipated follow-up features more than 300 easy and fun crafts, with tips and tricks for quirky projects to make at home. The anti-Martha Stewart, Mark's projects are fun, zany, bright, and colorful--but most importantly, they're made for real people with normal budgets. A master of turning easy-to-find, inexpensive objects into incredibly glamorous crafts, like dollar-store woven mats transformed into elegant coffee table covers, bracelets made of thimbles and much more, Mark plays with ideas for home, clothing, yard, and kitchen, with projects for all skill levels. With everything from an easy and quick jewelry idea to the more complex paperclip chandelier, Mark Montano returns to the formula that made the first Big-Ass Book of Crafts such a success. His everyday chic style has made him a darling of TLC programs and craft fairs alike, and this follow-up book brings more fabulous tips and tricks to a craft-hungry public. Featuring four-color illustrations and photos with step-by-step instructions, and with chapters including "Midcentury Mish Mash," "From the Mundane to the Insane," "Wire Wonderful," "Plantastic," and more, Mark demonstrates the perfect ways to make your home, clothes, and personal style sing!"--Provided by publisher.

Because one wasn't enough? More crafts that are centered around gluing crap to other crap and creepy mannequin/doll heads. Just when you think it can't get worse, it does.

My whole family loved this and found projects they wanted to do (boy, 11 & girl 8 & Mama 42). We called it the "Big-bottomed book for crafts." We'll definitely be checking this out again.

It was an okay craft book, Ive seen better.
there were some ideas in here that were just tacky. But the pictures were good and it brought out my creative side.

Equally as entertaining as the first "Big Ass Book of Crafts", this book has a whole new assortment of projects ranging from useful to random and quirky.

Most of the projects require paints and tools that would need at the very least to be supervised for kids. There are some supplies that are really frequently used if you want to do most of the projects: needle-nosed pliers, drill, E-6000, aluminum flashing, cereal boxes, Minwax Polycrylic Protective finish, Elmer's glue. There are projects for all skill levels presented.

"While I know that not every project in this book will fit everyone's style, I can assure you that if you take a look at each project, you'll find a technique or process that will enhance your already wonderful creative abilities."
