Pinterest Ideas Gone Wrong

Average person spends around 1 hour on Pinterest, and like and repin cool stuff so that he or she can try to do that thing later. When we see pretty stuff, we immediately dream of ourselves doing these lovely things in our spare time. From cookies to home decor, and from hairstyles to DIY crafts, we repin a lot of things and feel like trying them as soon as possible.

However, things not always goes right way, and we may mess up everything. If you ask “are there any Pinterest ideas gone wrong?”, there are tons of them. There are people who end up with horrible products that isn’t even close to the stuff we saw on their awesome pins. But don’t worry… These fails are all repinnable again. Because most of them are darn funny. Well, they say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and suffice it to say a project is easier pinned than achieved.

Luckily, the people are able to laugh at themselves, which gives us some hope they won’t be stopped from attempting another DIY project ever again. So, without further ado, here are some examples of Pinterest great ideas gone wrong. (Click on them to see…)

  1. Gluten-Free Glop
    Maybe you’ve heard of this “gluten” stuff that seems to be in just about everything that’s edible.
  2. Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel Mess
    These chocolate-dipped, candy-covered pretzel sticks by the baker chick have so many layers of goodness.
  3. Messed Up Painted Mason Jars
    Since they were retired from use as centerpieces on my wedding day several years ago…
  4. Watermelon Shark: a deep-sea disaster
    What’s pink and green and threatens to bite your guests’ hands off if they dare to sample your party food?
  5. Crummy Minecraft Creeper Cupcakes
    If there’s a preteen boy who isn’t in love with Minecraft these days, I haven’t met him.
  6. Treat-loaf Trash
    When is a meatloaf… not a meatloaf?
  7. Chewy Nutella Cookie – Nailed It
    Where have these chewy Nutella cookies from Lovin’ From the Oven been all my life?

Sites like and pinstrosity spotted this unlucky trend, and started sharing funny DIY fails from Pinterest and asking users to submit their own. From modern hair buns turned into a cleaning-day-at-home sort of hairdo, to decorative pom poms looking like floor rags, the results are usually pretty disastrous.
