Buying stuff is so last year, thus more and more people turn to DIY projects for anything and everything they can. And with the help of the internet, many DIY craft tutorials are only a couple of clicks away - from holiday decorations and toys to clothes and makeup, all of that and so much more can be done at home. Or so they say at least.

With so many Do It Yourself tutorials flooding the Internet lately, you'd think people would have the hang of this DIY craft thing by now. They don't. They're still delivering some pretty epic fails, and it's still hilarious. We get that directions to even the easiest DIY are sometimes hard to follow. It's totally true that things rarely look the same as on the screen. Come on, though. Did these people even try?

Have a look, and a laugh, at some of the worst Pinterest fails we could find below. If your DIY project didn't go as planned either, add it to our list below, because there's no shame in funny fails if you at least put in 50% effort.

Have done this for my sons kindergarten teachers last christmas. Was actually not very hard. I covered the bottle in a clear cello covering (to protect the label etc. I then hot glued the Ferrero Rocher's to the cello. The leaves I made into a collar and then just glued them on in different sizes until I was happy with the result and then I wrapped the whole thing in a couple of layers of clear cello, secured it with gold curling ribbon tendrils and flared out the cello and leaves at the top. The teachers were stoked and for once I was pretty proud of my efforts. Be warned though it uses a LOT of chocolates to look good ... I used 30 odd for each bottle.
