If there's one thing I love, it's wasting hours of my life browsing Instagram for all the classic Pinterest fails.

One click on the famous hashtag, and I am transported into a world of moms just like me — moms who are seduced by the glitz and glamour of Pinterest, taken in by the "super-easy DIY" that promises crafting made simple for even the most craft-challenged among us but inspired to take on a project that will delight our children for years to come.

Of course, things never go as Pinterest promises, and this Halloween, we can all appreciate the hard work of these parents who definitely #nailedit with a few holiday favorites.
