Do you ever have a major Pinterest Fail, or a great idea that doesn’t work out? I’ve been creating DIY & Recipe content here at Hip2Save for a couple years and have had more than my fair share of ideas that didn’t work out for me!
Maybe it’s the idea, or user error, or both. 😉
I get inspiration not just from Pinterest, but also from tips from fellow Hip2Save colleagues, family, friends, readers like you, magazines, and cookbooks. My job title could be Lina- “Professional Trier of All the Things”
For instance, I now know that sharpie markers rub off of ceramic coffee cups, sugar free flour-less cookie dough bites are a little gross, and quite a few slow cooker recipes can turn out mushy and tasteless!
I truly make a point to only share ideas here on Hip2Save that I get excited about and that aren’t super complicated to accomplish.
This week, I tested out this Camping Hot Dogs idea from a beautiful pin I saw on Pinterest via this lovely website, Frugal Coupon Living. As you can see, mine look a little different! 🙂
I’m thinking this happened to my crescent roll covered hot dogs on a stick because I cooked them on a grill and secured the foil too tightly. I also failed to soak the wood skewers in water. Whoops! Haha! I bet this would have turned out better in the oven and maybe without foil?
If you often have Pinterest fails, please know that you are SO not alone!
