Tis the Season for Failed Pinterest Projects

I mean what’s the Christmas season without a frazzled frustrated mother pulling her hair out and drinking too much wine because her pinterest project isn’t coming together?


It’s as much a part of the holiday as hanging Christmas lights or baking cookies if you ask me.

Exhibit A: a cute felt Christmas tree for toddlers to decorate:

My attempt:


And let me be clear here, I picked up every last one of those ornaments off my kitchen floor and placed them on the tree before snapping this photo. The only thing the boys like to do is take the ornaments OFF the tree…they do not like arranging or putting them back ON the tree.


Exhibit B:


And my attempt:


Not much more to say on that disaster.

And finally, exhibit C: an attempt at an advent calendar

christmas 3


I started out attempting to tie each individual tree to the banister, but that got old quick. So, I though I would string them on ribbon and what I got was a bunched up mess of trees.

Clearly, I should have learned the first time. Crafting is not my thing.

I am kidding (mostly). All these little projects have been fun for me and the boys (other than the ornaments, that really was a disaster). But sometimes I think to myself…’why the hell am I doing this?’

    the fact that you even attempted 3 pinterest crafts right after having a baby makes you my hero. I loved the felt tree idea but didn’t have the motivation to make one myself and well, my ornaments didn’t turn out much better. And, the advent calendar? I had my mom buy a cheap chocolate filled one so I could eat the candy each morning instead of my kids. There are many more moms who are like you than those crafty moms on pinterest. So, go drink another glass of wine!!!

    I love that you tried the pintrist ideas! And at least the boys are having fun doing something…. even if it is removing ornaments 😛
