Do It Yourself projects allow people to reuse items lying around the house to create something cool instead of throwing them away. However, just because you can DIY anything, it doesn't mean you should. A subreddit with a pretty self-explanatory title (DiWHY) is collecting the worst DIY fails, and they are so dreadfully awful, you might feel like Leonardo Da Vinci after checking these bad ideas out.

Basically, these DIY ideas belong to one of the two groups: a) a DIY project is so bad, it shouldn't exist, to begin with; b) the execution turned out horribly wrong. From leaving a print of your baby's bottom on a bowl to preserving childhood toys like failed biological experiments, some people should really consult others about their latest DIY crafts. Scroll down to review the epic fails and upvote your favorites!

Remember the name Harrison, everyone because I predict we'll be reading a news story about him in about fifteen years that includes the terms "both parents dead", "lifelong humiliation", "ass bowl" and "killing spree".

I wonder if they will do it every year till 21? How do they know when to stop, this could go dangerous at some stage. You might need bouncers to hold the kid down after a certain age.
