Here is the true verse.
Jeremiah 10:1-5,8-9 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2. Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3. For the customs of the people are vain: For one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: They must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. 8. But they are altogether brutish and foolish: The stock is a doctrine of vanities. 9. Silver spread into plates is brought from Tarshish, and gold from Uphaz, the work of the workman, and of the hands of the founder: Blue and purple is their clothing: They are all the work of cunning men.
Read it carefully now and understand what it says and not what man says about it, but what the Holy Spirit says about it. Understand the Holy Spirit is not in you unless you are sinless. If sin separates us from God then it too will separate you from the Holy Spirit, for they are one and the same. When the Holy Spirit is in you he is reigning in your whole body not just your heart or mind. Don't get this mixed up with when he communicates to you for whatever reason. Now its says work of the hands of the workman not craftsman. It says with the axe. No craftsman works with the axe to craft anything. He uses a chisel to craft the thing that he is crafting out of the wood. This is talking about decorating a tree and worshiping it, not making idols and covering it all in gold and silver like many will tell you. Remember that the majority is always wrong and will die.
"Such "tree worship" was well known in the time of Jeremiah and later. The oak was universally held in esteem. In mountainous areas cedars and firs were worshiped. In more desert regions the palm was the tree most worshiped. As the The Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics states: "Tree worship pure and simple, where the tree is in all respects treated as a god, is attested for Arabia in the case of the sacred date-palm in Nejran. It was adorned at an annual feast with fine clothes and women's ornaments" (vol.12, p.449). The encyclopaedia goes on to say that the biblical mention of the women of Judah draping the asherah with their garments near the Temple at Jerusalem is another example of tree worship (II Kings 23:7)."
Women's ornaments are gold and silver are they not?
