1. Hedgehog Cake
A stunning cake turned into a thing of nightmares. I just can’t move on from the teeth used for the hedgehog.
2. DIY Jorts
DIY clothes aren’t always just about cutting. Words cannot explain what this clothing can be called.
3. Train Cake Fail
Just when you think you’ve nailed it. I don’t think that DIY train cake will be going anywhere.
4. Family Photo Fail
What can you say about this family? Probably a bit more baby bump that they may have nailed this one.
5. Tie Dye Nails
It looks so simple on Pinterest so why does it have to turn up like this? What went wrong with this nail art?
6. Ice Cream Cone Gardening
If you’re looking for a little gardening, then this may not be the DIY garden project for you. Let’s probably just stick to the good old soil in your backyard.
7. Hot Dog Dog
Yay you nailed it! You baked bread! Oh, is that supposed to be a hot dog dog?
8. Glowing Mountain Dew
It would be a cool idea if Mountain Dew could glow in the dark. Wonder why this Pinterest DIY failed.
9. Jell-O Straw Worms
So they’re not the worms you’re expecting, they still look a bit like worms in my opinion.
10. Bunny Rolls
I’m not trying to be judgmental but does these bunnies look like mutants to you?
11. Snail Dessert
I don’t think this is something you can consider a sweet treat. The thought is, you tried.
12. String Art Balloons
This craft project looks so easy when you view the step by step, but you can’t always have what you want. At least you were able to make a crafty little nest. 🙂
13. Paper Towel Curls
Who doesn’t love to imitate all the cool hairstyles in Pinterest. I love to recreate all those DIY hair like this one, it’s not always an epic success.
14. Bottle Bottom Flowers
I’ve seen this a few times in Pinterest and had the urge to try it. Just hope it doesn’t turn out like this too.
15. Yarn Ball Cupcakes
How else would everyone know what you’re trying to make? Write it down with royal icing!
16. Shark Cake
I just love how this monster fish cake turned out… Oh wait, should it be a shark?
17. Baby Picture Gone Wrong
Who wouldn’t want to capture a precious moment of your little one. But sometimes, it can be a funny moment you capture. Still priceless!
18. Sparkler Art
Quick tip, when spelling out with sparklers, do it in reverse!
19. Mermaid Hair
So you want to be a mermaid. Close enough!
20. Origami Nazgul
Do you think it would’ve looked better if they used black paper instead of white?
21. Easter Chicks Deviled Eggs
Easter chicks or spawn of the devil?
22. Beiber Burn Victim Cake
I personally think they nailed the hair right.
23. The Peeps Pool of Pain
Have you ever watched an animated series titled “Happy Tree Friends”? If that was their inspiration, they absolutely nailed it!
24. Melt Crayons Into Shapes
I’d have to say, the crayon did melt, not sure into what shape though.
25. Cookie Monster Cupcakes
I’m not sure if that’s cookie monster but I’m pretty sure that’s a monster.
26. Melted Crayon Art
They said this DIY art is so easy even kids can do it. I’m sure whoever made this will disagree!
27. Chocolate Truffles
I’m hopeful they still taste like truffles.
28. Kit Kat Cake
They probably didn’t have time to run for more Kit Kats.
29. Melted Minion
If Disney ever decided to make minions mutant, I think I know what they’d look like.
30. Sprinkle Lips
In my honest opinion it’s not a total fail; she was able to put sprinkles on her lips.
31. Rubber Ducky Cupcakes
Is this how the ugly duckling felt?
32. Braided Rainbow Hair
I feel for you girl!
33. Love at the Beach
Which version do you like better?
34. Snowman Fail
Is it safe to say that things gain weight when you bake it? I think Frosty gained a little weight.
35. Hamburger and Eggs
Honestly, I’d still eat this.
36. Penny Table
A bit too much glue?
37. Waffle Iron Cookies
Yay! You made crumbs!
38. Microwaved Mac and Cheese
Can someone please explain what happened here?
39. Tinkerbell Pancake
Nailed all the colors! I’d say this is a win!
40. Epic Baby Photo Fail
They may have not nailed it, but it’s still adorable!
