50 “DIY WHY” Projects That Probably Should Have Never Happened (New Pics)

With the internet chock full of ‘Do It Yourself’ instructional videos and posts, it looks like everybody and their mothers should be DIY masters. However, some of these handmade projects and hacks should never ever have seen the light of day! And they’re making us ask, “DiWHY would you ever do this?”

Incidentally, ‘DiWHY’ is the name of the 1.1-million-strong subreddit that’s full of handcrafted disasters and fails that will make you want to show them to your dad and make him groan with despair. Check out some of the biggest DIY WTFs and remember to upvote the best of the worst ones as you scroll down.

In the mood for some more facepalm-worth at-home DIY projects, our dear Crafty Pandas? Check out Bored Panda’s earlier post about the ‘DiWHY’ subreddit right here. And be sure to give their community a visit if you ever need some more demotivational crafting pics to look at.

“Ever try fixing things on your own? Didn't come out the way they were supposed to? Do you stand there questioning your whole life? If so, post your results here to DiWHY, where [crappy] projects from DIY live prosperously,” the community moderators describe the subreddit’s main mission online.

Having been started way back in 2013, the ‘DiWHY’ subreddit’s “hot glue gun enthusiasts” (that what members call themselves) celebrated its 7th birthday last week on November 20. While their content is great for knowing what to avoid at all costs, it’s also useful to have some general DIY guidelines to help you out.

For example, ‘Today’s Homeowner’ suggests looking at projects in a very simple, sober way: don’t bite off more than you can chew. Some people tend to vastly overestimate their capabilities, so staying grounded, having patience, using the right tools, and taking the time to get every single measurement right is how you turn your DIY disasters into DIYESes!

The founder of ‘DiWhy,’ Mr. Khan, told Vice that imperfect projects and home crafting fails don’t divide us but rather connect us.

“DIY and the failed attempts that accompany it will always serve as a great way to connect us. I think we've all tried our hands at making or building something. At times, it comes out great, but other times you stand there questioning yourself and wondering if you should continue,” Mr. Khan said.
