KUSA - The holiday season is when Pinterest shines. DIY crafts dominate most boards and it can be tricky to find out which ones work.
The best ones to try first are those that utilize items you may already have in your home. 9NEWS tried out a couple of these types of pins to see which ones are easy to do.
The ornament wreath was actually an idea that ended up looking as good as the pictures online.
All it required was a wire hanger, superglue, pliers and lots of Christmas ornaments.
But for every good idea, there are popular pins out there that don't translate well when you try to recreate them.
Watch the video above to see which ones work and which one will end up getting messy.
