10+ DIY Projects That Should Have Never Happened

DIY projects can be so much fun. I mean you get to A) do it yourself and B) reuse some of your old stuff to make something cool. But what happens when a good idea turns horribly wrong or when the idea was horrible from the get-go?

Well, the following examples are the perfect answer to that question.

1. Childhood Memories


Oh boy, this preserved childhood teddy bear collection looks like something out of a horror movie. I don't think this is how you do it.

2. Nifty Top


Is that actual boxer brief used as a recycled item to make a woman's tank top or are my eyes fooling me? I've never seen that done.

3. DIY Nails

Is that a mosquito they used to encase inside their DIY nails? Who in their right mind would think these homemade nails were at all attractive?

4. Stile-docs

Reddit | ukuleleemusic

Because you always wanted to wear stilettos that look like Doc Martins, right? I'd like to see them actually attempt to walk in these. I'll give them $20.

5. Portable Umbrella

I guess if you can't find a suitable umbrella stand why don't you just attach the umbrella right on to your back, eh? That's so convenient! LOL.

6. Baby Teeth Earrings

Reddit | book-nerd-daisy

So I've seen lots of cool DIY jewelry crafts but turning your baby teeth into earrings is definitely not one of them. Would you wear this?

7. Pant Planters

Reddit | WhalesharkWithSocks

So apparently pant planters are a thing because they've been spotted popping up all over the place. Why? Am I the only one who thinks they're creepy?

Reddit | OrthodoxWarlocks

Some people really take their devotion to their car to the extreme but my question is, who would do this hideous thing to their car?

9. When Comfort Is The Key


Call me crazy but I really like to be nice and comfy when chilling in my backyard, so why get these for $120?

10. Baby Bloomer

Reddit | remonstrater

The fact that someone had the idea to hand make this creepy baby doll planter is disturbing enough but who would actually want to buy it?

11. Makeshift Drapes

Reddit | askalsky

You know your friend is a real cheapskate when you see this monstrosity instead of actual drapes. What? They couldn't even get a rod?

12. In Case You Get Lonely When You Drive

Reddit | JoseGiraffe

Honestly, I've been a bit lost for words ever since I've stumbled upon this item. Can somebody hold my hand, please?

13. Bra Planter

Reddit | SgtRandiTibbs

If you have an excess of bras you no longer use you can just turn them into a handy planter. Just not sure why you'd do that?

14. Dangerous Ride

Reddit | u/MannequinFactory

Can someone explain to me why would anyone have this instead of an actual airbag? I get the love for cacti but this is dangerous.

15. Man's Crochet Shorts

Reddit | u/goodolultraviolence

Everyone and their grandpa is jumping on the crochet bandwagon but please before you get something like this just look in the mirror first.

16. 3D Printing

Reddit | Catnip044

Imagine running into your in-laws and trying to explain why your earrings resemble a vibrator and saying you were just experimenting with 3D printing? No!

17. Cat's Meow

Reddit | EditPiaf

Is it just me or do you find this as equally disturbing that this artist made a bag right out of her dead cat's fur? Yikes!

18. Bathroom Crime Scene

Reddit | PegBundysBonBons

I'm not really sure why people think paining their bathroom walls to resemble a bloody crime scene is so appealing. Would you shower here?

19. The Weirdest Thing You've Ever Seen

Reddit | AqueousSilver91

What the heck is this thing even supposed to be? A doll? A foot? A foot doll? LOL. Who would make this?

20. Worst Idea. Period!

Reddit | MachSlug

Is this what I think this is? Please tell me it is not. Why would anyone think using knitted sanitary tampons was going to work? Baffled.

21. Repurposed Lamp

Reddit | PraxisLD

What is it with people reusing old dolls to make stuff with? The only explanation for this is that they must be decorating a haunted house.

22. Jean Bag Chair

Reddit | noneo

If this isn't the most awkward chair I've ever seen I dunno what is. Who is it for? I bet the dogs would love it though.

Load Comments

I can't believe people thought these ideas were perfect for a DIY project.


I guess nobody stopped them so they just went ahead with it. Don't try this at home.
