These Pinterest Fails Will Leave You Wondering If DIY Is Worth It

We all enjoy creating things that make our homes nicer, and it's a natural extension of that fun to seek out ideas and then try to duplicate them. This is, of course, all good in theory—but when it comes to practice, many of us struggle to keep up with the professionals.

The people that took these photos didn't so much struggle as fall off a cliff while trying to copy Pinterest ideas. Thankfully, while the results may not have been what they were looking for, they're perfect for giving us a good giggle. 

Come check them out! You'll be happy that you did.

1. Cookie Monster's Car Crash

Cakes are among the hardest arts to perfect. Those beautiful shots on Pinterest are the result of decades of practice, and when you don't have that, this is what happens.

2. The Baby Without The Model Gene

Imgur

The first shot is so effortless, the second is so much more realistic. Bless him, that's the kind of photograph we think we'd all take when trying this at home. 

3. The Hair Raising Truth

Imgur

Want that first shot? You need great light and a very, very fast camera lens. What most of us are likely to get if we try this ourselves is that second, less striking moment.

4. The Nightmare At Christmas

Imgur

We have to wonder whether they had been nipping at the Christmas sherry when they decided to take on this tree design, because that really is disastrous. 

5. Ruining The Waffle Iron

Imgur

We completely sympathize with this cook. Leftovers and a waffle iron don't automatically return an amazing result, you've got to prepare things properly. 

6. The Failed Alcoholic Christmas Tree

Imgur

If you want to make the tree on the left, you probably need to indulge a little more often during the course of the year. Though, we'd recommend a different choice of tree—think of your liver. 

7. The Extraterrestrial Eggs

Imgur

This looks like it should have been so easy, but the reality gives us something from Roswell rather than from Wolfgang Puck. It probably tastes fine, though.

8. Never Mind Let's Get Stuck In

Imgur

Sure, these don't look picture perfect—but they don't look inedible either, do they? We'd happily indulge our sweet teeth here as long as you don't tell the boss we're eating on duty.

9. Thanksgiving Turns Turkey

We bet everyone's mouth was watering when they went into the oven but not so much when they came back out again. Chalk it up to fowl play.

10. The Baby Beautiful And Not So Beautiful

Imgur

The professional photographer elicits the perfect lighting and poses to bring a child to life. The amateur photographer takes an ordinary child and hopes for the best.

It happens to us all at times, right? We hope these made you smile and that your DIY projects go swimmingly.
