So like many of you, I have become obsessed with Pinterest and make sure to browse it on a daily basis...mainly my homefeed to see what everyone's pinning, but sometimes I actually explore some of the different subjects and find some good ideas. It's a rare occasion that I actually get around to doing the things on my board. But eventually, at some point, I do and it's either a complete success or a complete failure. That is the way with pinterest, there is no in between. I'm going to share today the failed pins that I've attempted that have just come out like complete garbage.
1. Pretty Painted Pumpkins
Don't let these cute gourds fool you. They make look cute. But they are little shits. That rot in less than two weeks. I was moving around my back room and picked one of the ones I painted (an ikat version with the same colors above) and it was all moldy!! I had to throw it out, I was extremely upset. So don't even bother painting them. They won't last.
2. DIY Skin Smoother
This really seemed like a good idea when I was reading it. The definition of this project in less than four words: Big Oily Mess. In this tutorial, the person used a mason jar but I decided to use a different tutorial that had a more tempting photo that lured me in. I took my butt right to walmart to buy the exact salad dressing container for it, and got to work making this concoction. I was excited for all of 5 minutes until I went to use it. I shook it with all my might and yeah, it mixed the oil and sugar up, but ultimately, the sugar sat at the bottom, and I was left with a handful of olive oil in my hands and no "scrub". Don't waste your time and patience on this (going to walmart [you know that if you aren't in an out before 8am, don't even bother] and actually trying to use this "scrub").
Just no. If you aren't at least 5'7 and have a LONG torso, this look is not for you. Even if you are thin. There is no way in hell to successfully tie a cute little knot like that on the side without it riding up your ENTIRE TORSO. I tried this, with the maxi skirt and it was a big mess. I don't know if I needed a longer shirt, or a thinner material shirt. Bleh. Same thing goes for the cute knotted maxi skirt bottom. N. O. NO.
4. Butter Baking Trick
I have no words for this one. I saw this one day a long time ago and said "Holy crap, why didn't I think of this". So I needed butter for a recipe one day, and let it get un-frozen and well I guess it just got too room temperaturey and it was a gooey mess. I got so frustrated I threw the grater in the sink. Just stick to shoving it in the micro on half power for 2 minutes.
5. BEST ICING EVER!
LOL. While this icing ACTUALLY tasted good, it was soooooooo sooooo messy and goopy, and watery and had NO consistency to it. You literally could do nothing with it. You try to make it all cute and airy on top of a cupcake? FORGET IT. It was worse than making your own icing (confectioners sugar + milk). It was flat on top of the cupcakes and very messy. But I still say, it did have a good taste to it.
Tell me I'm not the only one who has failed pinterest projects. Tell me below!
