When I first saw that BuzzFeed came out with Nifty, I was initially extremely excited about it. I followed them right away and couldn’t wait to see all of their neat ideas.
A lot of the times their ideas are not that inventive and to be honest, aren’t the attractive.
Take this lotus candle holder for example. To me, it looks like exactly what is is: spoons surrounding a candle. Trying to disguise it as a “lotus flower” isn’t fooling anyone. It simply looks like you had left over spoons from a family gathering and instead of saving them for the next one, you just glued it to something random to prevent yourself from throwing it away.
