On March 29, the virtual cork board app Pinterest launched a glorious new feature: How-To DIY pins.
(Brief pause for the angel’s trumpets to sound.)
Pinterest Launches How-To DIY Pins
All of us DIY-ers are well aware of the disconnect between perfect-looking DIY projects on Pinterest posted and actually replicating them IRL; in other words, it’s difficult to get from Point A to Point B without detailed instructions. (In DIY speak, it’s called a Pinterest Fail.)
Considering DIY is the number one searched term on Pinterest, something had to give. Enter How-To pins.
How-To pins include step-by-step instructions on how to create the finished product. A new “Try it yourself” section has been added, which includes the steps with accompanying photos so you can follow along.
So say good bye to #PinterestFails and say hello to #NailedIt! Pinterest’s got your back.
But who can resist a little Pinterest fail fun…?
