Etsy's Weird Salute To Presidents Day

Oh, Presidents Day. A time to honor our leaders, past and present, or reflect on the history of our great country. Or, a time to depict Abraham Lincoln as...a bluebird?

Since Etsy's marketplace has ballooned to 13 million, we realize not every seller is going to offer the height of taste. After all, the road of crafty dreams is probably paved with a billion Twilight-inspired necklaces. And then there's Regretsy, which presents the best of the worst items on that very site.

But even that knowledge didn't quite prepare us for the sight of Abraham Lincoln's head on a bluebird's body. Once you see that, you can't un-see it. And when you see that, you inevitably go down a rabbit's hole of weird items that are similar to the aforementioned Lincoln-bluebird hybrid.

In the interest of not being alone in our knowledge of bizarre presidential crafts, we bring you this slideshow. From the semi-expected (Abraham Lincoln, zombie/vampire/whatever-hunter) to the haunting (puppet), take a look through our finds and tell us if you don't feel...patriotic?
