Not a Creature Was Stirring, Not Even These Mice

This? This is the ultimate Craftastrophe.

At first glance, they look like some pretty innocent, though heavy-looking earrings. Upon closer inspection though, I find offense with the red beady eyes, the oddly coloured ears and the thought of those tails tickling my shoulders a la Squirrel Feet Earrings makes my back teeth hurt.

Combine all of that with these mice buttholes though and my back teeth scurry away!

But despite this Craftastrophe becoming a classic (in my head), it pales in comparison to this gag-inducing albino mouse head necklace (pun intended):

Yes Virginia, there is a real mouse on that pendant.

Sam and Karen hail from none other than, where they prove on an almost daily basis that handmade isn’t always pretty.

Craftastrophe was created by nothing more than a few innocent messenger chats where we shared some creative pounces we came across on Etsy. From then on it was a mirage of craftastrophes which couldn’t very well be kept to ourselves, but had to be shared.

These craftastrophes aren’t necessarily bad crafts, many are well made and have taken the crafter a lot of time and energy to create; this site’s goal is to showcase those crafts that are funny, weird, strange and make us laugh. We mean no harm and can honestly say that there have been sales for some sellers on various sites due to their craft being featured on this site! We merely want to share the laughs and enjoy the talents of many. Talents which neither of us have.

    Oh wow, lead sinker mice, they’re cute, but damn, that’d be heavy on the ears…

    No way! I love the taxidermy mouse necklace! Also love the squirrel feet earrings, tho they seem like they’d be scratchy on your neck. I’m probably a bit off-center, though. I do have earrings made from a friend’s wisdom teeth.

  3. OH! Ok, that’s reeeally nasty!

    I will say the only disturbance I have is the mouse head, but only because I’ve three little mice who are my dear babies. It’s just kinda macabre in my little book.
