Pinterest Project Reviews

Hi, my name is Jess, and I'm a pin-aholic.  Anyone know what I mean??  I pin so many things on Pinterest that I could spend a week doing projects and still not create them all!  I decided this week that I'd tackle a few simple pins, and see how they turned out! 

Painted Bottles

My finished product:

These were SO EASY!  Plus, since I used paint samples I already had on hand and bottles I'd been hoarding collecting, it didn't cost me any money!  It was a quick project and I'm super happy with how it turned out!

Chocolate Covered Kiwi Pops

My finished product:
I'm a huge fan of frozen fruit covered in chocolate.  These chocolate/PB bananas are one of my favorite treats!  I've now made the chocolate covered kiwi bites twice.  They are yummy!  I used dark chocolate, dipped the kiwi slices into it, and froze for about 20-30 minutes.  These are a great way to end a chocolate craving!

T-shirt Upcycled into Workout Tank

My finished product
Lately, I've been uncomfortable working out in baggy t-shirts.  The sleeves get on my nerves and as they get sweaty, they get baggier and I just feel sloppy.  When I spotted this tutorial, I had to try it!  I'm happy with the way the shirt turned out.  I'm going to also cut off the bottom, because it did still get kinda baggy as I worked out.  Overall, I'd do this one again.  It was fast and easy, and a great way to use my t-shirts that are getting too big!

Anyone else habitual pinners, but not doers?
Any fun pins you've created lately?

Now it's almost back-to-school time, so I'd better get busy pinning classroom ideas doing school work!


  1. This is a great post! Can I let you try out all of my Pins? Like you I'm a little addicted to Pinterest and find it hard to get the time. Love the glass bottles.

  2. I may be in the dark ages...but I've never seen Pinterest. I keep hearing so much about it & how addicting it can be, so I'm avoiding. You've completed some cool projects though. Maybe I'll check it out...

  3. Cool projects! I'm terrible at pinterest or I should say it is the one social media site I'm not addicted to lol
