It’s no secret I failed the last few challenges miserably. After much reflection, I’ve determined this is a result of me, trying to live up to lofty Pinterest standards that are simply above my own personal level of DIY-prowess. The solution?
I could come up with my own original pin! Truly, it would be a win-win situation…there would be no previous benchmarks for me to live up to, and when my brilliant idea when viral, I’d be lauded as the creative crafting genius behind the entire scheme. (Insert evil craft laughs here.)
And so…without further ado…
Remember all those craft supplies and the custom set of plaster teeth you threw out when you decided to go minimal last week? Dig those puppies out of the trash…it’s time to repurpose them! (Thanks for the brilliant idea, Tove!)
Paint the teeth your favorite color while trying your best to sing along to your Lil’ John song of choice. (You KNOW I love me some Lil’ John.)
Attach rhinestones in various shapes and colors while your husband rolls his eyes and tries to figure out what possible childhood trauma could have led you to create a pink, bedazzled grill at the ripe ol’ age of twenty-eight.
Allow your masterpiece to dry overnight, while you peacefully dream of all the street cred you’re about to accumulate. (There may or may not also be a nightmare involving that elusive Easy Bake Oven…but mostly it will be dreams about street cred.)
Try on your grill. Enter a state of denial as you desperately try to ignore the fact that it wasn’t quite what you were going for.
Freak out upon realizing you probably just poisoned yourself with a set of plaster teeth covered in toxic paint and rhinestone glue. (Such are the risks of thug life.)
Violently rinse out your mouth in the sink while debating possible uses for your less than desirable grill. Find a small amount of comfort in the fact that it could be repurposed as an abstract Mother’s day gift, or donated to one of those poor little girls on Toddlers and Tiara’s who can’t afford a real flipper.
If both of those options fall through? At least Sheila can wear it.
Pinterest challenge, you win again.
