26 Christmas Pinterest Fails That Almost Ruined the Holidays

Pinterest makes holiday cooking and home crafting seem so damn easy, but you all know the sad, brutal truth lurking beneath that million dollar smile: it’s a giant pinning board of lies. Who among you hasn’t lain on the floor weeping, covered in raw baking or craft materials, a heartbeat away from washing down the rest of your sleeping pills with an entire bottle of wine, because you believed the person on Pinterest who told you it would be so simple to make the holidays glorious for your family? Below you will find brutal evidence of Christmas Pinterest and holiday Pinterest that expose the horror of reality covered up by Pinterest DIY propaganda. 

The good news is you can laugh at the Pinterest misfortunes of others thanks to this collection of Christmas craft fails and crafts gone horribly wrong, much as you might chuckle at cringe-worthy Santa face swaps or let fly with a bellowing guffaw of existential dread when thinking about the most brutal rebellions, revolutions, and uprisings of the 21st centuryso far. Sure, laughing at some poor fool’s misfortune is the evil version of holiday spirit, but as you surely know by now, morality is subjective, all social relationships are mitigated by imagesgenerated by profit-driven media ventures, and cruelty is fine so long as you drink gallons of eggnog and whiskey.
