Etsy is an amazingly useful site that gives people a chance to sell DIY crafts that you often can't find anywhere. There are some truly great things to buy on Etsy, but you won't find any of them on this list — because sometimes when people are allowed to make and sell whatever they want, things go bad. Very bad.

10. Star Trek Trekkie Spock Smiling Geek Handmade DIY Tribute Necklace Vulcan Power EMO PUNK
Leaving the name of this item aside (because really we have no idea), it’s important to note that “this is not a cheap plastic item and is very durable.” Before we read that, we had at least some hope it might disintegrate quickly. Set phasers on sad.
9. Exe Funtown Brooch
For no discernible reason, this “brooch” is made out of a circuit board from an old video camera, a gear from an old video camera, a pink plastic heart, a pale blue button, a plastic creamy white bowling pin and a plastic pale violet bowling pin. Which is a polite way of saying it’s made from garbage. To add insult to injury, it costs $18.
8. Yellow WTF Bunny
The name says it all: WTF?!?
7. G33K Keyboard Choker
Allow us to quote the sales material: “Just because you’re a geek doesn’t mean you can’t be sexy.” Unless you’re wearing this choker.
Do you have a friend who just can’t get enough of inkjet printers? Yeah, well, neither do we. And if we did, we probably still wouldn’t get them this demented inkjet finger puppet.
5. ASTER Felt Sculpture
This miniature felt planet comes equipped with three volcanoes, a blowhole, two mountain ranges, and three legs. That somehow makes ASTER just anthropomorphic enough to creep us out. Oh, and if you cuddle him, he jingles. Run!
4. Star Wars DIY Tu Tu
If you had to make a Tu Tu out of a “lightly used Star Wars fabric sheet” (let’s pause to say “ick" … okay, let’s continue) did you also have to put young Anakin on it? It would have been less painful to look at if you used Vader. But thanks for not using Jar Jar. That may have actually blown out our eyes.
3. Head Shaped Mousepad
Someone thought making mousepads in the shape of human heads would be a gift your loved ones would treasure. Someone was wrong.
2. Luigi toadstool wacky helmet hat
1. Princess Leia Star Wars Inspired Ornament
Terrify children with Princess Leia realized as a Michael Meyers-esque misshapen ball of yarn. Just looking at it gives us the heebies (the zoom view is even better…or should we say worse?). It’s part of a collection of four. Also not to be missed is the Chewbacca ornament that looks exactly nothing like Chewbacca.
