My love for Pinterest is well-established.
But sometimes even the best relationships hit a bump in road.
Meet my bump in the road, otherwise known as Pinterest Fail.
Here’s what it was supposed to look like:
Some friends and I thought it would be fun to try this t-shirt scarf at a Pinterest party recently. (We also all brought food we made based on our Pinterest pins – yum!).
The scarf seemed easy enough – cut up an XL t-shirt, do a little fabric stretching and voila.
Alas, it did not worked out as planned.
Mummy, anyone? Through a combination of strips cut too thin and overstretched fabric, I ended up with this sad heap of shredded t-shirt. Not exactly something you want to show off.
I’m blaming the good conversation – distraction certainly played a role.
In honor of my Pinterest Fail, I thought it’d be fun to look at a few others I found on Pinterest:
This manicure fail comes from La Blondie Peruana. I’ve seen these marble nail tutorials on Pinterest and wondered…now we know they are harder than they look!
We’ve all seen those painted candles holders on Pinterest. The tutorials say to wrap the glass votives in rubber bands, spray paint and pull off the rubber bands once the paint dries.
Adriane from For the Love of Painting tried it and found out it was a bit more complicated. The paint seeped under the rubber bands and made all of the lines a bit messy. Good attempt Adriane!
This one might be my favorite. It’s been floating around Pinterest for awhile now and I can’t seem to track down the original, um, artist. It cracks me up because I could definitely see it happening. Poor Cookie Monster.
