Ever seen those "Trust me, I'm an engineer" memes? Well, now we know where they got their inspiration from.

We're all guilty of a little DIY now and again. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes it's just plain disastrous. But when it isn't TOO disastrous, it can often be pretty funny. Which is why Fashion Life have compiled this list of amusingly creative DIY solutions to pesky everyday problems. So take a look at the pictures below. You might just find a good way to fix something. Or you'll discover the best way NOT to do things. Either way, it's probably best if you don't try these at home. But if you have already then feel free to send us your pictures!

The duct tape is not on the baby, it's just holding the pull-ups together. They separate at the sides, but this pair looks a bit small for the child wearing them, so you improvise and they work fine. I've done this before in a pinch when we were given a pair from another parent that were just a tad small for my child.
