50 DIY Fails That Went So Wrong, People Just Had To Share Pics Online

When the term DIY (do it yourself) comes into question, many of us have different associations with it. Some people are avid fans of it and even like to repurpose old items with creative twists, while for some people… the term quite literally means a disaster in every way possible.

Let’s be real, even those who are rather skilled at making things themselves have failed quite a few times before they got it right. However, sometimes we not only lack the patience and skills to execute the plan, but also the literal sense to know when something is not going to come out the way we want it to. Some ideas are just meant to never be executed for our own piece of mind, unless we don’t mind nightmares, that is.

Now that all of that is out of the way, we suggest you check out some of the DIY fails submitted by the members of the r/DiWHY subreddit community. And unless you want to intensify your nightmares for tonight or just have a good laugh, make sure to check out previous posts here, here, and here.

In a previous article, Bored Panda had reached out to IAMmojo who is the moderator of the r/DiWHY subreddit. We wanted to know how moderation works when it comes to such a big page in general.

“It’s not too difficult in general, but on certain days there are influxes of [crap]posts and reposts which can get crazy. Even with rules, these will continue to happen. It’s why I use Automoderator to handle rejections of any new accounts or low karma accounts as a baseline.”

The moderator also shared one of the most common recipes for a DIY (or should we say DIYWHY) disaster. Can you take a guess on what it is? We are sure, the answer might not be that surprising but it is funny nonetheless.

“If you ask the sub, they will surely mention the hot glue gun as the main ingredient. I think most posts in general have a humor element to it in common.” They told Bored Panda.

With all of that being said, the moderator was sure to mention that failing in something should not be taken as something upsetting but rather as an opportunity to improve. “Keep working on your craft! What you make today maybe be the next big thing tomorrow! Not everyone is a skilled artisan, we can only try our best.”
