Where craft meets fan culture.

If you ever need to break the ice, just ask someone who their top five celebrity crushes are. Everyone on the planet enjoys obsessing over good-looking famous people: teenagers express their affections by plastering their bedroom in shiny posters and adults indulge by lurking the Daily Mail (look, we've all been there). There's another way to lean into those silly, giddy feelings, too. It's called a crush doll, and really, it's just a good excuse to get crafty and imagine what a life with your Hollywood belle or beau would look like. Thunk up by The House of Lars, you'll find the full tutorial in this little e-book, which will set you back around $7. Once you've stitched up your DIY doll, you can plonk it on the Christmas tree, tuck it into bed or dangle it from your car window – wherever it is you need a touch of celebrity charm.
