Fun with Tampons! 15 Crafty Ways to Use the Archetypal Feminine Hygiene Product (PHOTOS)

Tampon Craft Ghost
When cuddly and blood-curdling collide

There’s no question that there’s a season for tampons. For most women, that season is once a month.

Thank God, however, that the geniuses at discovered that tampons need not be restricted to that time of the month, nor vaginas. Tampons are finally having their moment. Jewish, Christian, bald, impotent: There’s a tampon craft for you! Yes, you!

No, seriously, there’s really a tampon craft for almost every occasion, plus a few tampon crafts just because.

It’s genius. Check it out (you’re welcome):
