It’s that time of year again: wedding season. If you’re a bride looking for the perfect hair accessory to top off your look, you probably know how many options are out there, and how many stores seem to think that the using the word “bridal” in a product description allows them to charge $300 for a glorified bobby pin. But don’t worry–this is why Etsy exists. Click through to check out 10 gorgeous one-of-a-kind designs, all handmade by Etsy artisans, all for $50 or less!
The #1 most embroidered phrase in history is probably “Home Sweet Home,” closely followed by “Bless This House” and “Live, Laugh, Love.” Those saccharine sentiments are nice and all, but we prefer our embroidery to have a little bit more edge, which is where Etsy comes in.

I’ve seen many Virgin Mary candles in my day, but this is definitely the first Virgin Who Can’t Drive candle I’ve ever come across, and everything about it–from the “Clueless” quote to Brittany Murphy’s incredulous expression, is amazing. The perfect gift for anyone who worships at the altar of ’90s movies. [$12, The Mall]

Etsy is a great place for allowing artistes to express their creativity. It’s also a place where weirdness goes to die. Take, for instance, this bizarro felt and fake leather necklace from Etsy seller the Triangle of Bears, which is made to resemble a mouth full of teeth and gums. Sure, you’d want to wear that around your neck, right? Because the teeth in your mouth just aren’t enough? And if, for some reason, you’re so inclined, you can have a set of fake teeth made custom by the Triangle of Bears, to resemble your mouth, or the mouth of someone you love.
