The Nine Ugliest Holiday Ornaments on Etsy


In Etsy's holiday shop, ugly is not in short supply. There are countless creepy Santas made from papier mache and dozens of "up"cycled wreathes that have seen better days in the can. Today, we're looking at ornaments, and we're not ashamed to admit that we're scraping the bottom of the barrel. 

Here are the nine ugliest holiday ornaments on Etsy, along with price information and their creator's descriptions (and our translations). 

9. Whimsical Labrador Dog Christmas Santa Claus Ornament -- $22 
​Etsy Description: Cute ornament sculpted with bakers clay, baked for hours to give it the right hardening. Hand painted with acrylic paints, antique then varnished. New but made to look old vintage.

Translation: "Bakers clay," huh? No turd polishing here. Nope.
