*Pinterest Fail Alert*
I’ve been called the crafting queen many times (seriously, hearing that never gets old), but the truth can sometimes be hard to believe. I am not always that great at creating projects. I cannot paint pictures. I cannot draw. I am not good at following directions. So when I saw this tutorial on It All Started With Paint, I thought: Rubber-bands and spray paint? Pshhhhhhh (that’s me acting like it’s too easy). Clearly, I could do this.
I know what you’re thinking: this project has Sparkle written all over it. How could you fail? How could you not take this project, run with it, and make it even more amazing? What could go wrong? You are the crafting queen! There’s only one thing you’re good at, and it’s crafting!
Well. If you thought any of those things, you put too much faith in Sparkle.
I already had all the ingredients, so I got to work on my project immediately. Sort of. Of course I had to change it up just a bit, you know, because it won’t sparkle without some added Sparkle. Instead of rubberbands, I used painter’s tape to tape off the mummy strips. The problem? When I peeled the tape off, the gold paint came with. As you can see from two of my mummy jars, it was definitely a Pinterest fail. Or, I guess, technically it was a Sparkle fail. Since I clearly didn’t follow directions well.
Overall, the original creator of this project definitely deserves some props. She clearly knew what she was doing with those rubber-bands. Too bad for my co-workers, because they’re still getting these mummified mummy jars.
