What no one ever told me on Pinterest
of all, I love Pinterest, it's amazing. Pinterest has so many different ideas
for me on a daily basis, from outfits to dinners. However, sometimes Pinterest
makes things look a lot easier than they actually are. Learn from my naive
mistakes. Here are some of the hard truths that no one wants to talk about.
You can't use regular
dry chalk on your cute chalkboard. Regular chalk will wipe away even with a
slight breeze, and won't show up brightly. You will spend time going over and over
your chalk lines to make them brighter, and not even realize that your new
marks begin to erase your previous marks. You will need liquid chalk markers!
Liquid chalk will make it cleaner and brighter. You can find liquid chalk
markers at your local craft store.
Mason Jars.... are
I could put 3,000 mason jars around my house I would! I think they are so
beautiful and Pinterest has so many fun crafts you can do with them. However,
the going rate per pack is, at least, $14 in stores. So if you think they would
make a great wedding favor, be sure to check the prices before you fall in love
with a cute mason jar craft idea. Also, it looks easy to tie bows around them
and fill them with chocolate powders. It's not, it takes a lot of time. So be
ready to invest yourself
can't use your regular Sharpies for your ceramic mug art. So don't go and grab
whatever you find from your desk. You need a special oil-based paint Sharpie
marker. Otherwise, your cute baked design will be gone in 1-2 washes in the
sink or dishwasher. You can find oil-based paint Sharpies at your local craft
Exact ingredients in
Don't just say
"Brown sugar" that doesn't help anyone. In a recipe, we need all
measurements to be clear and labeled. A miscalculated measurement could change
the entire flavor or chemistry of a dessert. So be sure to read through the
recipe entirely before beginning, and use your best judgment to either solve
the problem yourself or find a new recipe.
my friends go now and make all of your Pinterest dreams come true. However
don't be like me, know that all things that look easy usually aren't. In the
end, the most important thing is to have fun while making your DIY pin-craft.
Because really isn't that what it's all about?
