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.

That’s it, I’m craft shaming.” is a relatively young private Facebook group created in July 2020, with almost 100k members. The group came about when the world was desperate to figure out where to put their hands as the coronavirus lockdown was implemented around the world.

“Honestly, at some point, we have all come across a post and just thought 'what the actual heck.' This is the group for all of those occurrences,” states the group's description. It invites members to post anything from an “ugly ass wreath” to a “tumbler that looks like it went for a tumble” as long as “it's handmade, and it's hideous.”

So to find out more about the community firsthand, Bored Panda reached out to its moderator team, who were happy to share some insights about the craft shaming online movement.

“The craft shaming group started because a few people were tired of the craft community being dishonest about people’s crafts,” said the mod team representative. “In every crafting group, people would post something so hideous or the words are crooked and it’s for sale and people will tell them it looks nice or they like it and this person ends up selling a subpar product,” they added.

So “That’s it, I’m craft shaming.” was created as a satirical response to the overwhelming positivity that surrounds craft communities. “We created an environment where people can be honest with their opinions. It’s not just a place for bad crafts, but also a place to share craft finds that are cool but make you say WTF.”

When asked to explain the craftshaming term, the mod team said the word refers to the act of shaming crafts or wanting to exhibit people’s bizarre DIYs. “Some examples of our favorite posts would be the self-shaming posts, the crochet baby, and the badly done resin pieces,” the mod team said.

According to the moderator team, the recent surge in very weird and often tasteless DIY experiments has to do with everyone being eager to sell homemade stuff before reflecting on how good their product is. “I think a lot of crafts from Pinterest fails and people selling their crafts as soon as they get a Cricut. Some people don’t understand that you need practice and time to improve before selling anything,” the spokesperson of the mod team concluded.
