Many of you already know this, but I’m Martha Stewart’s worst nightmare.
I’m not crafty, nimble-fingered, or artsy-fartsy. (I may be the latter half of that phrase, or it could be the dogs. Like I claimed.)
- I don’t sew. (Even buttons.)
- Glitter is a banned substance no amount of having-three-girls will overcome.
- I own a glue gun, but only because a friend pitied my kids and gave it to me. (It’s still encased in plastic.)
In fact, I actually make Katie do the DIY posts here on Incredible Infant.
Speaking of, if you haven’t seen her amazing DIY post showing how to make a baby-happy felt tree, you are missing out!
There’s a sick twisted part of my soul that rejoices when I see another person have a craft fail worthy of my own abilities.
As a Christmas gift to myself, I decided to put together a collection of my favorite holiday Pinterest fails. I’m wrapping them around my shoulders as a mantle of friendship.
These my peeps.
Finally. A crafting language I can speak.
How to Read This Post
I showed this post to my Hubster (who was laughing so hard we had to take a break), and I realized that by far the best way to enjoy it was to scroll slowly, stopping at the “~~” line about halfway down the photo.
This way you can get a clear view of what it SHOULD look like, before finishing the scroll to see the actual fail. 🙂
How Are Your Holiday Pinterest Fails?
(Or Don’t You Have Any?)
So I’ve made it clear that my own creative efforts land more on the “Epic Fail” side of the spectrum.
What about you?
Are you a Dexterous Diva? Or a Knack Novice?
Which of these Holiday Pinterest Fails made you grin the widest?
