The first step is admitting you are powerless over Pinterest.
Here are 10 seriously out-there Pinterest trends that, if you’re into them, it’s probably a sign you really, really need to find a better use of your time:
Crazy-Cute Food Crafts 1 of 10Because you have nothing better to do with your time than spend hours crafting a lunch that will either be eaten in 52 seconds or discarded in no-time that looks like a moving train or the Three Little Pigs?
Insanely Exotic Braids 2 of 10Let's see a side-by-side comparison: What you wanted to braid and what you actually braided.
Now that's a board we could get behind.
Upcycled Nature 3 of 10Mother Nature called.
She asked that you leave her and her brethren as you found it, and not paint, paste, hot-glue gun or otherwise render it part of a holiday centerpiece or rainy-day project that will see the bottom of a trash can before you can say "Driftwood sea glass suncatcher."
Crap in Mason Jars and Other Unnamed DIY Projects 4 of 10Remember when just jelly went in jars? And bugs?
Sign. Those were the good old days.
Luxury Chicken Coops 5 of 10This is really how you want to let people know you spend your time?
Holiday Overload 6 of 10Last we checked, Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ, not turning your home into a one-day-a-year theme park for elves and foil-covered chocolate.
Garden Gnomes and Fairies 7 of 10When did they start allowing 4-year-old girls on Pinterest?
White Interiors 8 of 10Clearly a trend among people who are childless.
Either that or they like to redecorate. Often.
Skinny Chicks in Huge Flowing Outfits 9 of 10It's unclear when certain Pinterest posts became an outpost for those awful thinspiration websites, but clothing trends like this are evidence that, indeed, it has happened.
Insanely Long and Thin Stacked Images 10 of 10So art-y of you. So stock photo-y of you.
