How to Make {Almost} Everything


From the original ReadyMakers themselves (founders Shoshana Berger and Grace Hawthorne) comes this new book full of the same kind of clever, well-designed projects that have earned ReadyMade props from the National Magazine Awards and design snobs alike. An idea-well of projects includes a Moss-worthy glass water bottle chandelier (pictured after the jump) to instructions that suggest readers cut a window in the cover and personalize it with a photo. ReadyMade's irreverent sense of humor and originality make the book a handy resource that's a good read to boot. Combined with a subscription, How to Make {Almost} Anything is a perfect gift for tinkerers on your list.

Available for $25 from ReadyMade (first 100 copies come autographed and include six limited edition magnets) or Amazon.
