Design fails can happen anywhere, starting with clothes and ending with furniture, the awful design specimens can be found in all the aspects of our lives. Even such a sacred festivity as Christmas inevitably gets its fair share of epic fails in design. In fact, this festivity needs so much merchandise and various Christmas ornaments, that it is indeed a very fertile ground for a miss or two. And with Noel just around the corner, we thought we'd get you in the festive Christmas spirit by bringing you this hilarious list of funny fails.

Compiled by Bored Panda, the collection below features a whole host of merry merchandise and Christmas-themed ideas that didn't entirely turn out as expected. We are not sure whose fault these abominable Christmas decorations are, but we don't really care as long as they're hilarious. From suspiciously phallic-shaped candle holders to trees that resemble butt-plugs, these Christmas home decor fails are sure to make you ho ho ho with laughter. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!
