2014 has taught us so much. For instance, we now know all the reasons why we should never go outside. We know what's out there in the world, thanks to Google Maps. And we've also seen some pretty shocking things this year, too. It might seem like a stretch, but Pinterest also provided a wealth of knowledge in 2014.
For one, if you've looked at a craft from the site and thought, "I imagine that could go horribly awry," it definitely can (and probably will). So, before throwing yourself into an expert level Pinterest project in 2015, here are some lessons we've learned from a few epic Pinterest fails.
Lesson 1: Babies are terribly unprofessional when it comes to modeling. Thinking of trying to recreate this adorable fall photo?
Well, good luck with that.
Lesson 2: Dogs are also bad models.
Lesson 3: If you give kids a chance to get messy, they will.
...the clean-up, not so much.
Lesson 4: Don't make substitutions in a recipe you've never tried before.
Lesson 5: Coffee should remain in your mug or coffee pot.
Lesson 6: One wrong fold and an innocent calzone can get NSFW pretty quickly.
Lesson 7: As a rule of thumb, baby shower fruit displays should not be absolutely terrifying.
Lesson 8: Listerine is meant to clean your mouth, not your feet.
Lesson 9: Don't throw plastic in the dryer.
Lesson 10: If you try to ice a cake or cookies while they're still hot, the icing will melt.
Lesson 11: If ain't broke, don't fix it.
Lesson 12: Leave nail art to the professionals.
Lesson 13: Kids are really good at breaking things.
Then again, this water blob project was just bound to go wrong.
Lesson 14: Chocolate-covered microwaves aren't as delicious as chocolate-coated...anything else.
If you take away one thing from these 2014 Pinterest fails...just use your brain, people.
