It’s the most crafty time of the year. Kids are out of school and the annual cries of “I’m BORED” have begun, leaving many parents scrambling for something ANYTHING to occupy their time. Enter Christmas crafts.
They always sound like a good idea at first. The next thing you know though, your kitchen table has glitter permanently embedded into the finish and somehow there are silver pipe cleaners stuck to the ceiling fan. Be careful how you get up from that chair, you’re probably literally glued to your seat.
The best part of totally failing at doing a Christmas craft is sharing it online for all your friends to laugh at. So we’ve assembled some of the most inadvisable Christmas crafts from Craft Fail, the Pintester and My Pinstrosity Life. Take our word for it and don’t try this at home.
A delicious mess.
Just scrape them up off the counter and feed them to your kids. They do not care how pretty the cookies are as long as they’re drenched in sugar… which these clearly are.
Baked candy ornaments meets the angel of death.
Just glue it back together and you’ve got a terrifying hellion to hang on your Christmas tree. Or perhaps you could hang it on your front porch to scare away package thieves.
Baby hand print? More like baby ink blot.
Babies and paint and glass? What could go wrong?
When the weather outside is really REALLY frightful.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it SNOW BLOOD.
These are some beary terrifying cake pops.
Polar bear cake pops are all fun and games until you make something that looks like Hannibal Lector was helping in the kitchen.
Frosty the clown-man…
When you were going for a snowman but ended up with Stephen King’s nightmares.
Christmas crafting is for the birds.
These bird feeders look a little more like they’ve already been consumed once.
Is that popcorn or entrails?
Is this a popcorn wreath or a bloody internal organ skewered on your front door? Keep it ambiguous so as to serve as a warning to all naughty children.
Oh bookmas tree…
I’m imagining an empty bookshelf, a huge mess and a Christmas “tree” that will be up until March, because seriously who wants to re-shelve all those books?
At first I was gonna, but then I was like nah.
Sure, let’s make a pinecone tree! Until you get about ten minutes in and then realize there’s a reason God didn’t make entire trees out of pinecones.
