Come, let’s all LOL together at these spectacular Pinterest fails #UnpickingPerfection

We all know that no one’s life really looks like their Pinterest feed (except maybe Anne Hathaway’s). It’s a social media platform designed to trick even the least crafty among us into believing that we too can make the perfect adorable marshmallow snowmen, flawless ombre hanging macrame plant holder thingumies and bunting made of unicorn hair and fairy dust.

We believe, we try and we fail – because Pinterest is not real life. Let’s all chant it together: Pinterest is not real life. Here are a few people who learned that the hard way.

This person just wanted to make some delicious macaroons…

But forgot the air them for a couple of hours, so ended up with what looks strangely like a map of the world made out of chocolate chip cookie.

This person just wanted to make tiny tributes to Frosty the Snowman…

And ended up with mutated-looking minions wearing top hats.

 This optimistic fellow wanted to make a hypnotic Christmas swirl…

And ended up with a green sludge that would make even the Cookie Monster take a pause.

 This well-intentioned Harry Potter loving fan wanted to create a magical masterpiece…

And ended up with something uglier than Voldemort’s face.

These dramatical fails aren’t confined to the cooks and the bakers of this world, either. Despite looking like the mess left over after Spiderman defeats the Green Goblin, these stringy light things are apparently really hard to make.

One person was aiming for this…

And ended up with something that looks like the mess of wiring behind the TV.

 Another was going for this…

And ended up with this. Hats off to them for going to the effort of hanging it up considering it looks like a crumpled milk bottle covered in string, which on second thoughts might actually be exactly what it is.

Honestly, why do people keep trying to make these weird lights when they are obviously impossible? Why do we do this to ourselves?

This balloon string thing was meant to look like this…

And instead looked like an old mop that your mum left to dry in the shower.
