We've all been're browsing Pinterest and find an amazing project you just HAVE to make.  You gather all your materials and get to work.  You follow every step correctly and do everything you're told to do, but your craft still comes out looking, well, wrong.  Like, comically wrong.  Like, you just can't help but laugh at how absolutely wrong it is. 

For those who love to laugh in the face of failure, there's Craft Fail: When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrong.  Based on the popular blog of the same name, this book is jam-packed with awesome craft fails...a button bowl that deflates instantly, a marbled nail tutorial that just ends up being an unholey mess of nail polish, a bunny cake that looks like the dog made it, and just so many more funny fails to make you feel just a little better about your own fails.

Great for creative minds of all kinds (crafters and bakers alike!), this book offers a fun escape, a little look at crafters who are having a worse day than you are...because there's always just a little comfort in that.  Browse through Home Decor Fails, Fashion Fails, Holiday Fails, Food Fails, and so much more.  With before and after photos included for all the projects, Craft Fail may help inspire you to buck up and just try it again...because what's the worse that can happen?

From the Melted Crayon Canvas Inferno (been there, done that!) to Microwave Soap Sludge, CraftFail celebrates the underbelly of the creative process--the "A for effort" stuff that inspires platitudes about the hidden benefits of failure.  So go ahead, give that Peppermint Platter Perfection a try...or try your hand at a 20-Minute Tee Shirt Dress.  Where others have failed, you may succeed!  And even if you do fail, one thing's for're in GREAT company.

We're all in this together, crafty friends!  Stay inspired, stay creative, and enjoy the little hiccups along the way with Craft Fail: When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrong.
