There are Pinterest fail blogs for a reason, but most of us moms just keep right on trying. I won't blame you for your holiday spirit that you channel into an insurmountable craft project. I'm just here as a Christmas angel to warn you that your Pinterest aspirations probably aren't going to happen. Or at least, they probably won't turn out as beautifully as they are when photographed in soft lighting on a DIY craft blog.
The true holiday spirit is all about adjusting your expectations. If you glue a few baubles on a pinecone and hang it from your tree, I would call you crafty. If you braid a few red and green pipe cleaners together in the shape of a wreath and hang it from your door, I would salute you. Good job, Pinterest mom. You must be really good at Christmas.
But if you inevitably screw it all up, pour a glass of eggnog and cut yourself a break. Most importantly, do not try any of these pins at home.
I dare you to stay up until 2 a.m. on Christmas Eve putting sprinkles on Cheerios.

Now fold and glue 60 more of these for your annual Christmas cards.
In the words of every '90s sitcom star, this looks incredibly easy. Not.
Because everyone has a few perfectly cut logs lying around.
I would call this easy if my toddler didn't paint better than I do.
Do it for the Lord.
Because getting your shifty child to stand perfectly still against a wall is always easy.
Let's not pretend this is how your salt dough ornaments will really turn out.
