When Amy Sedaris heats up her Easy-Bake Oven to make those infamous cupcakes, it's a festive sign that the annual BUST Magazine's Holiday Craftacular is back and as pert as ever. This year, the comedian/actress will be sharing the spotlight with Project Runway's Stella Zotis—along with about 200 other DIY craftmakers who'll put originality and creativity under your tree and in your red stockings. From jewelry, knitwear, vintage clothing, gourmet sweets, books, home décor, cosmetics, and baby gear, you're bound to find something that even picky Aunt Ethel would like. And of course, with all that pent-up shopping fatigue, you'll have a chance to unwind on the Craftacular dance floor to the jams of hot DJs and bands. Who knew the homey "handmade revolution" could bring on a party like this?
