20 Pinterest crafting 'fails'
‘C’ is for craft disaster.
Yes, it takes some above-average icing skills to pull off the Cookie Monster cupcakes on the left, but the use of a pastry bag would've helped keep this poor baker from turning their masterpieces into cookie-vomiting smurfcakes.
Pinspiration: Snowman ornament
Perfect snowman ornament from kid handprint on the left...super hot mess on the right.
Bing: Paint your own ornaments
Pinspiration: Anne Geddes pic
Oh baby. This Pinterest fail looks like an Anne Geddes photo-shoot gone awry.
The concept is pure cuteness overload, but this sweet li'l pumpkin is also one sad li'l pumpkin. Not exactly a Hallmark moment...
Pinspiration: Melted crayon art
If you’re okay with ruining your glue gun and removing the paper wrappers from crayons, it is possible to create a beautiful rainbow of melted crayon art. Or this.

Pinspiration: Cotton candy drink
Looking for a fun, kid-friendly drink? Make mocktail magic with sparkling water and cotton candy.
Stick to a single color or else your beverage will end up an unsavory shade like this poor Pinterest fail.
Pinspiration: Star Wars pancakes
This mom gets props for trying to make chocolate chip pancakes healthier by using pecans, but there are no words to describe the final product. Well, except perhaps "skinned Chewbacca face." Don't think these will make the menu at IHOP anytime soon.
Bing: The best pancake ever
Pinspiration: Barbie cake
We’ll give this Pinterest fail mom a pass – working with fondant is tricky. That said, this cake looks like a walk-of-shame version of Mattel’s most perfect figure.
Pinspiration: Santa ornament
We love kid-crafted holiday ornaments, but a mom intervention may have saved this Santa version from looking like a fringed sock puppet.
Pinspiration: Bouncing rubber ball
Kids’ science projects are super cool, but we seriously don’t think this two-ingredient 'bouncing' ball is going anywhere. Except into the garbage bin.
Pinspiration: Yarn eggs
With just three items – glue, yarn and balloons – what could go wrong? This impatient Pinterest fail crafter not only used the wrong ingredients, she put the yarn egg on a paper plate to dry, thus rendering it not remotely egg-like.
