The Most Hilarious Kids Costumes We’ve Seen on Pinterest

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!

Another Chocolate Covered Strawberry Fail

OK, we get it. This pin looks too delicious and too cool not to attempt:

“Make these chocolate covered strawberries in an ice tray. They are portable and easy to take to any picnic.”

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:

Caterpillar Hand Paint Craft Fail

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:

Spray Paint Mason Jars Fail

We saw this on Pinterest, and the nice people at Pursewna allowed us to re-post. Thank you!

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:
