Nailed It: Pinterest Fails for the DIY-Challenged
There’s a jolly little teapot on my porch that contains the rotting remains of a sad, long-dead succulent. I have several mugs adorned with my own crappy Sharpie drawings, which I was too lazy to bother baking to set the ink so I can’t actually use them. My windowsill is home to a wine bottle half-draped with crusty bits of yarn.
I own a lot of Mason jars and tea lights.
I am a Pinterest failure – a DIY-challenged wannabe crafter with the patience for only half a project at a time and the skills for less than that.
It’s nice to know I’m not alone, though, which is why PinterestFail.com is like a second home to me. A second home filled with gross-looking versions of Pinterest’s perfectly staged foods, awkward attempts at “effortlessly cool” hairstyles and craft projects that look like they were done by four-year-olds.
Check these perfect fails (the intended result is above, while the failtastic attempt is below) … and then feel at peace with your sub-par handmade creations.
