{i can’t even} 10 of the Absolute Worst Ideas on Pinterest

There are a lot of bad ideas on Pinterest, but these are some of the ones I personally find to be the worst. And if you knew how many times I thought “I can’t even” during the writing of this post you would start painting acorns or something.

So without further ado, these are ten of the worst ideas on Pinterest.

1. “Weird and Wacky Bologna Cake”

Just so we’re clear, this abomination of a “cake” is made of bologna, cream cheese, dry ranch dressing mix, and squirt cheese. Let me just give you a moment to throw up in your mouth.


2. “Giant Faux Photo Booth Wall”

“Honey, don’t you think these giant shots of 90s-era David Duchovny making whimsical Jon Benet Ramsey poses are JUST the thing for our entry way? I’ll order a dozen.”


3. “Spa Day Guacamole Cheese Ball Face”

In case you haven’t figured out what this is, it’s a face-shaped cheese “ball” slathered in guacamole made to look like a lady having a spa day, and you’re supposed to serve it at a spa party. So just close your eyes and imagine the moment once the first couple crackers have hit the dip and the face looks even MORE maimed than this already terrifying tableau. Also imagine how gross it would be to eat a cheese ball covered in guacamole right before/after you get a bikini wax or deep tissue massage. Sorry for ruining your day.


4. “Festive Fall Decor”

How bored do you have to be to paint a whole vase-full of acorns? Is this really the best use of your time? Especially when the vase would probably look about a thousand times better with natural acorns? Read to your children or make some cookies for god’s sake.


5. “Lemon Wedding Bouquet”

The bride’s expression says it all. I guess this is what she gets for marrying the last in a long line of lemon farmers.


6. “Ladder Braid”

Did you ever wish you could spend hours making your hair looked like it had an 80s banana clip built RIGHT IN to the OUTSIDE of the hair? No? Me neither.


7. “Make the Most of the Time We Have”

“We have to make the most of the time we have because DEATH IS IMMINENT so we must MAKE A GIANT LOPSIDED CLOCK OUT OF FAMILY PHOTOS TO REMIND US but we don’t have enough pictures so we’ll indicate 5 o’clock with a picture of our favorite chair.”


8. “Framed Shopping Bags on Your Wall”

You should see their kitchen! It’s wallpapered with framed Whole Foods receipts.


9. “Menstrual Nails”

Nothing says classy like bloody tampon cartoons etched on your fingernails.


10. “Time Stood Still”

I am sure these are lovely people IRL but I interpreted “time stood still” to mean their children were DEAD. Which is clearly not the intention. This is just such a commitment, with the clocks, the photos, I just can’t. I CAN’T.

Haha. You are so funny. I love your blog. I kind of have a girl crush on you, but not in a weird way.

OK, so I thought I wanted to throw up after that bologna and “cheese” “cake” (I can’t get enough quotes in there), but those period nails are seriously the worst thing EVER. Who the hell would do that?! These are some gems, Karen.
