My Most Repinned Pins from 2012

Happy New Year!

Thought it would be fun to take a look at the top 10 most repinned pins I pinned this past year on Pinterest.

1.  Reindeer noses pretzel snacks

This one had the MOST pins of all my 1,116 pins.

I have no idea why so many people loved this pin.  Maybe because everyone loves Christmas. Probably because everyone loves an easy to make treat.  And these look easy.  Problem though is that no one can ever find those circle pretzels.  Plus, it's harder to push M&M's into Hershey kisses than you think.  I know from a failed personal experience.  Don't judge.

2.  St. Patty's Day Bundt Cake

Okay, this is a really pretty cake.  I get it.  Not to mention people LOVE St. Patrick's Day.  It's a good excuse for grown adults to drink- A LOT.  I wonder how many people actually made this cake?  After looking at the recipe on Love from the Oven I do think I could make this.  Maybe I will this year.

3.  Doggy Light

I pinned this when I was looking at nursery ideas.  I thought it was cute.  I had no idea people loved dachshunds so much.  Unfortunately, this light is no longer available from where I originally pinned it at www.modernnursery.com   Sorry guys!

4.  Glitter Ornaments

People love glitter and sparkles!  People love Christmas too.  And monogrammed or personalized things.  This is a home run! I think I'll try to make them next Christmas.

5. Valentine Confetti

It's popcorn, white chocolate, and M&M's.  All packaged up nice and pretty.  What's not to love?

6.  DIY: Golf Tee fix for stripped holes

Ummm, I guess we all have a lot of crazy holes around our house that need repair?   Really though, this does look useful.  I'll try it if I get crazy with the drill one day and need a quick fix.

7.  Blackberry Jam Shortbread Bars

Yummy!  These look amazing.  Haven't made them yet, but I'm thinking it's gonna happen soon.

8.  Edible Christmas Trees

My own Edible Christmas Trees  made the list.  This is one of my most popular posts.  Again, people love Christmas.  And this is a great kids activity.  I did it my 3rd grade class last year with great success.  You can't screw it up.  Plus, it's a decoration you can eat.  Kids love that.

9.  Oreo Pops

Easy to make cute chocolate covered Oreos.  I think we know why this one made the top 10.

10.  How to be a Calm Parent Article

Guess we all need parenting advice.  Enough said.
Check out this article at Awesomely Awake.

So, there's the Top 10 of 2012.  Quite the variety.  Wonder what 2013 will hold?

  2. How did you determine which pins were the most popular? Did you go through everyone one of your pins and see how many repins it got, or did you just use intuition to find popular pins and then counted those and ranked the top ten?

    1. I actually did go back and see how many repins it had at that time to determine whether it made the Top 10. :)


I love reading your comments! Thanks for visiting.
