Next time, try to be a little less #PinHappy.
THE GOAL: Painted Upholstery
This blogger succeeded in changing this chair's color with some spray fabric paint.
THE FAIL: Overly Bold Blooms
But this paint was no match for a stubborn floral print (note to self: stick to solids for this DIY).
THE GOAL: Eyeliner Curling Trick
This diagram for lining your eyes and curling your lashes at the same time seems easy enough. Or does it?
THE FAIL: Eyeliner Curling Trick
When beauty vlogger Ellko tried the trick, unfortunately it turned out more messy than perfect.
THE GOAL: Button Bowl
This petite accessory makes for an adorably kitschy key bowl or desk organizer.
THE FAIL: Deflated Decor
A balloon helps the bowl take shape, but this one popped before the glue could set!
THE GOAL: DIY Self Tanner
Cocoa powder plus lotion supposedly creates a cheap at-home self tanner.
THE FAIL: DIY Self Tanner
Thanks to blogger Jillie, we now know this two-recipe doesn't give you a golden bronze glow, but rather a streaky, kind of dirty look.
THE GOAL: 1-Minute Mug Brownie
"1-minute brownie" might possibly be our favorite 3 words of all time. AND you can microwave them using just a mug. What can go wrong?
THE FAIL: 1-Minute Mug Brownie
Don't turn your back on the microwave, guys, and pay attention to the power levels. Fondue anyone?
THE GOAL: Cherry Pie Cookie Cups
It's pie meets cookie in tiny form! All you really need is refrigerated sugar cookie dough and cherry pie filling.
THE FAIL: Cherry Pie Cookie Cups
Apparently this dessert is harder than it looks. These cookie cups literally cannot keep it together.
THE GOAL: Mustache Nail Art
Whether it's for No-Shave November or a swanky black tie event, an adorable mustached manicure like this is always impressive.
THE FAIL: Mustache Nail Art
Unfortunately, those cute little mustaches weren't quite so easy to actually accomplish.
THE GOAL: Sprinkle Lips
While it may be impractical, it's hard to deny that this Pinterest-popular look is pretty cool.
THE FAIL: Sprinkle Lips
Okay, so it didn't pan out as planned, but at least this fail is full of deliciousness.
THE GOAL: A Ruffled Lamp
If your shade simply isn't girlie enough, pile on the fabric scrap frills.
THE FAIL: A Dim Room
But guess what can't get through a dense pile of ruffles? Light!
THE GOAL: A Gingham Wall
Perpendicular beige stripes create a charming effect that mimics your favorite button-down shirt.
THE FAIL: Too Boxed In
But choose blue and the final look isn't quite as quaint (this blogger even thought it was prison-like — eep!).
THE GOAL: Kool-Aid Lip Stain
This DIY lip tint seems like a delicious and easy homemade beauty trick.
THE FAIL: Kool-Aid Lip Stain
Sonja over at Pintester tried this seemingly simple DIY, but the results were less than picture perfect. On the bright side, she ate the rest of the delicious Crystal Light package she used.
THE GOAL: Waffle Iron Cookies
We were so relieved to hear there was finally an acceptable way to work cookies into our morning diet.
THE FAIL: Waffle Iron Cookies
That was until we saw this sticky disaster. The lesson: Don't forget to spray down your waffle iron. And maybe, you know, stick to making waffles in there.
THE GOAL: A Rainbow Fan
This inventive DIY helps you beat the heat with extra whimsy.
THE FAIL: Barely There
But pastel hues are apparently a flop when spun at high speeds.
THE GOAL: Puff Paint Jars
Leave a subtle 3D message on painted glass with puffy paint or a bit of hot glue.
THE FAIL: A Gluey Mess
But without a steady hand (and some really cooperative glue), this craft quickly turns sloppy.
THE GOAL: Bunny Rolls
These little bread bunnies would be so perfect for Easter or really any day because they are so darn adorable...
THE FAIL: Bunny Rolls
Too bad this person ended up with demonic looking Pokemon creatures. Maybe serve for Halloween instead?
THE GOAL: Bun Curls
Check out this seemingly simple bun tutorial: Just roll your hair into buns, secure them for a while, then let 'em out and enjoy your gorgeous curls.
THE FAIL: Bun Curls
...Or enjoy your Carrie Bradshaw circa 1999 curls, like this Pinterest user did.
THE GOAL: Penny Countertop
This copper-toned mosaic gets its unique look from your piggy bank.
THE FAIL: Goopy Glue
A botched, choppy layout and too much adhesive made this attempt not-so-stylish.
THE GOAL: Plaid Nails
This nail ribbon tutorial is gorgeous, but is it possible to actually accomplish?
