Want to know how to make the world’s most terrifying Santa made of strawberries? Read on
What is it about Christmas that makes us want to get our DIY on?
All year round, photo frames remain un-nailed to the walls, that cushion we planned on making languishes in the corner, and we never quite get round to making bread at the weekend. And yet, the minute that first mince pie hits our lips, we immediately believe we're Kirstie Allsopp that time she did her Homemade Christmas show on the telly.
Here are nine of the best, most epic Christmas time fails, courtesy of Instagram. Now put the glue gun down.
1. Cookie fail
These are sugar cookies and they look terrible. Bravo, however, to the guilty baker’s excellent use of capitals in #USECORNSYRUP.
2. Death of the marshmallows
Is that molten lava under there? This is what it looks like when you soufflé marshmallows for the first time. Don’t do it.
3. Burn baby burn
This unlucky baker hid her gingerbread house in the oven but forgot to tell her dad. Who promptly turned the oven on. Not a good idea.
4. Rein it in
This reindeer needs a hug.
5. Scary Santa
These strawberry Santas are so bad, they’re actually kind of amazing. Even if all the spikes make them look like a nightmare to eat.
6. Nuh-ah honey
Question 1: is it honeycomb? Question 2: DID YOU MANAGE TO SAVE THE POT CLAIRE?!?
7. Choco no-no
See @justinerosestark's comment on this one: it's so PRETTY and BROWN.
It’s bad, but it's still a snowman wearing an Oreo top hat. And that can only be a good thing.
9. The joy of Christmas
