23 Atrocious DIY Projects That Will Have You Scratching Your Head
Ever struggled with one of your DIY projects? Rest easy knowing it can't have been worse than this.
There are DIY projects that don't turn out quite how you wanted, and then there are DIY projects that turned out just how the creator wanted, they just never made sense in the first place.
Here are 23 examples of DIY projects that always had us asking the same question — why?
1. A hands-free pizza eating device
How about no? from r/DiWHY
This person really knows how to take the joy out of eating pizza.
2. It's all fun and games until you want to buy something
While putting money inside a diaper or inside sanitary products might seem like a good way to repel thieves, this method will also repel the general public at large.
3. No one will notice
This is one of those don't try me at home DIY projects.
4. Someone's cutting a few corners
Is the effort required to make this worth it when using your hands to cut paper really isn't that difficult?
5. Don't get any ideas
This is an example of one of those DIY projects that seem cool but are actually terrifying. Stay out of jail kids.
6. A shiny sh*t bowl
This shit shines from r/DiWHY
We've heard of glamping. What would this be called? Glooping? This is one of the most bizarre DIY ideas we've seen.
7. Making the most of limited space
So this looks absolutely awful, but we can't help but admire DIY projects that fix a simple problem with a simple solution.
8. A mailbox that needs to be plugged in
This mailbox from r/DiWHY
There are bad DIY projects and then there WTF DIY projects. A microwave mailbox on the side of a cow field definitely falls into the latter category.
9. A completely unnecessary exoskeleton
So this person might have, rightly, seen that exoskeletons have a bright future in the world of health tech. This is not it though.
10. Dangerous DIY projects
If a nail is sticking out of it that's usually a good sign not to use it.
11. How to make a $1,000 mirror
So you could make an incredibly expensive mirror by buying an iPhone, sanding the paint off, and shining the surface, or you could just buy a mirror for $5 at your local store?
12. Don't do it yourself
Not if you don't want to get electrocuted, that is.
13. A splinteringly bad home gym
You might be getting splinters on your back while you lift, but no pain no gain, right?
14. The hammer of Nokia
There's the hammer of Thor, and then there's the hammer of Nokia. Some DIY projects just make perfect sense the moment you see them.
15. Watch right to the end
You think you're getting homemade masks, but this is so much better. An example of DIY projects gone wild.
16. A rabbit in headlights sat on the sofa
Have you ever been half asleep and suddenly woken when you dream you fell off a surfboard or you were driving into oncoming traffic? This brings that dream to life.
17. The coolest kid in school
This kid is a master of DIY projects and also a master of pencil sharpening. They will never forget their pencil case at home because they literally need it to walk to school.
18. Shredding a cheese solo
Cheese guitar. from r/ATBGE
We've heard of shredding a guitar solo, but never of shredding a bit of cheese off a guitar. I guess that's what this person was going for.
19. Legoregano rack
DIY projects are a great way to pass the time. If you can combine them with lego building, all the power to you.
20. A new type of green car
Mobile garden from r/DiWHY
This is one of those DIY projects that will likely get you pulled over by the police. This car might not run on electricity, but it sure does photosynthesize.
21. This is why cats will one day take over the world
"Why, master.." from r/DiWHY
Mixing DIY projects and humiliation of an entire species isn't cool. They'll remember this, and they'll hold it against us.
Want to show off to your friends? Take them for a spin in a car with a fake sunroof. Just make sure it's a cloudy day so they don't ask you to open it.
23. For people who hate wearing shoes
Ever been asked to put your shoes on when you didn't want to? Nor have we. This person obviously has many times though. Thankfully, they found a clever solution.
So what do you think? Can you think of any DIY projects that are more head-scratchingly strange than these? Be sure to let us know.
