What I Did: This looked perfect for a summer BBQ. Bonus – it was certain to impress everyone. I followed the directions as best I could….the resulting Jello blob mess got thrown into a boozy bowl.

My Result:

Posted under Fail

[Editor's Note: This article makes me think that the key here is adding a mini hula hoop into the bottom hem of the sweater to make it flare out a little bit.]

What I Did: I chose this project for a dessert option for an early Christmas family get together. They looked delicious and easy. I didn’t change anything.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: I would make the peanut butter part less crumbly and freeze the balls a little longer. My project cannot be saved. I think with some changes the balls can turn out much better.
