I wanted to make an ornament wreath while hubby was watching football. I’m in my sweats and I went to the dollar store to buy all the ornaments. They didn’t have wreath forms so I went to Michael’s (10 mins away) and got one, then waited in like for HALF AN HOUR to buy it. Got home, started on it, and it looks like shit. Most of the DIY stuff I make is awesome, I don’t know why this one is so crappy. The crappiest part? It doesn’t even fit in the doorway – it’s too thick to go between the wooden door and the screen door. I even bought little led lights to put on it and it just sucks and now I can’t hang it. I feel like crying and don’t know why. I just wanna throw it all away but it’s such a waste of money and I have nothing to show for it.
Thanks for listening to me whine, lol.

Aww hun I’m so sorry! I’m sort of the same way with DIY, I can’t make a lot of things really well and give up in the middle with all the wasted effort and money.

Yeah, I hate it when I invest time and money and something doesn’t come out like I want. My biggest DIY blunders come from cooking where I end up just chucking stuff in the trash, then my Fiance is like “I would eat it!” Is there anyway you can put it on your house somehow? Like the exterior? Or are you in an apartment?

I hear ya, some of that DIY stuff is so expensive and comes out….um, not so great. Definitley been there. Maybe you could take the ornaments off and make a lil mini chritmas tree or something?

Take a deep breath, put it away, and go for a walk. When you come back, you’ll be calmer. If you want to keep working on it, go back to it, but otherwise, just recognize that it’s okay–you can still use the ornaments as just ornaments and you can use that wreath form to make some other kind of wreath.
DIY has a way of giving terrible tunnel-vision 🙂

I understand how you feel. I get very disappointed, because my DIY never turns out like I picture it. I agree with @beekiss2:, could you put it up in a window?

That sucks! : ( I hate it when I have a grand vision in my head and it doesn’t work out.
If you do still want to hang it up, maybe do what some of the other Bees are suggesting & hang it in a window? Or on the glass door outside the wooden one? Other places could be above the fireplace; in the entrance to your home, but inside; and above/on the mailbox.
