We found this image on Pinterest, and we totally relate:
It’s getting spooky over here at EPF, and it’s not just all of the scary pumpkin-flavored pins we’ve seen flooding our Pinterest wall. Nope, it’s getting close to Halloween! And we couldn’t be more excited.
We’re doing four gallery collections to celebrate. The first collection is of the funniest Halloween costumes we’ve seen for kids.
Are these pop-culture costume greatness, or should Social Services be called on the parents of these children? You be the judge.
Got one to add to our list? Let us know!
Of course, if you’re anything like us, then you probably ran out of time to make something creative for your child. Don’t you worry, you terrible parent! It’s not too late to buy a Halloween costume online!
OK, we get it. This pin looks too delicious and too cool not to attempt:
Even though we already debunked this one, readers are still sharing their failed attempts with us.
The following photo comes from EP reader Sara P.:
She says: “Chocolate covered strawberries in ice cube trays do not work. The chocolate cracks off when you take them out!”
But please, if you try this one, keep sharing your photos with us! We can all collectively smack our heads together:

The original pin – paint your child’s hands and have them press on a piece of paper to form his or her own Very Hungry Caterpillar:

Not only does it not look anything like a caterpillar – it is also a TOTAL MESS:

The original pin: use a hot glue gun and matte spray paint to “upcycle” mason jars and vases:
And the Epic Pinterest Fail:
Says Pursewna: “Unfortunately I was sloppy – all those little strings that happen when you use a glue gun? They are VERY noticeable when you spray paint over the top of them. Boo! This craft project was a MAJOR FAIL! Grade: D-”
It’s totally OK! Remember, in crafting, it’s not the destination. It’s the journey:
