It’s the last day of the year. A year of blunders. We’ve all had them.
Today I’m sharing five DIY Blunders I made in 2016.
DIY projects that didn’t get comments, few pins on Pinterest, & no Facebook comments.
Projects viewers didn’t like or take notice.
There were more than five…
But at five, I stopped counting.
2016 DIY Blunders
I realize at the end of the year we should be celebrating our successes, and I do. But it’s also fun to laugh at what failed.
I noticed most projects were holiday related.
Maybe I don’t holiday well??
The Valentine Advent Calendar above I made using things found around the house. Maybe I should have driven to the store for supplies!
The decorated straws above solves a problem too! They help keep droopy flowers stand straight and tall. I published this post in March. It may do better this year during Valentines. I hope. 🙂
The candy dish above was a blunder of trying to figure out what to do with light covers. I found them at out Habitat for Humanity Restore. I liked the shape but still haven’t found a use for them. 😕
Maybe I should use them for light covers!!
The wood flag above I made for a live DIY video. It was a hit live but the post flopped. I still have the little flag, but this year I’m planning a larger rustic wood flag.
Or, a larger blunder!!!
Outta all the DIY projects I’ve made this is one of my favorites. The autumn table runner. It came out just as I envisioned. Made from dollar store florals. Super easy to make. The only other thing used was a glue gun to make it. Guests loved it when they saw the table. It’s textural and durable. But got crickets on the post and social media. Maybe it’s my photography skills.
There you have it. The top 5 2016 DIY blunders. I know there will be more, but please hang in with me…because I did have others that were a hit! See a few of them below.
Let me know in comments if you agree with the list. Here’s to a new year and more DIY blunders…and successes!
