Hilarious Holiday Craft Failures for the Pinterest-Challenged

#1 – Poor Rudolph… It appears there’s been a terrible accident.


#2 – Hot cocoa on a stick… so adorable! So simple! Right?

#3 – I’m going to give that a 7 out of 10 – after all, it’s roughly the right shape and color scheme and appears to be fairly edible.


#4 – These cute Santas SEEM simple enough…


#5 – This candy platter seems like such a cute idea.


#6 – All she wanted was to make a cute hand-crafted bowl for someone’s Christmas gift, and now she has a sad, wilted button platter.


#7 – Not a complete fail here. Maybe it’s not as picture perfect as the Pinterest version, but dump some icing on that strudel and I bet it tasted great!


#8 – Such cute trees… that morphed into something else entirely. Hopefully they had fun eating the rejects!


#9 – The reality of Christmas photo shoots…


#10 – This seems about right…


#11 – When even the food coloring won’t cooperate with you…
