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!

Is that a glue gun? Maybe not with that implement to glue them. Some cupcake pans and liners, some additional chocolate drizzled over the top, an oven and 25 minutes to heat and 25 minutes in the refrigerator, you'd be set. I don't think this is a good idea, not even for decoration.
