The Hallowig – Knitty has a fairly easy pattern for a knitted wig made with brightly-colored yarn.

Memorial Molar Ring – Odd memento mori-ish sort of ring made with vintage porcelain molars.

    Those Nutter Butter bats are cute. I made Nutter Butter ghosts for my wedding. LOL

    Okay, so I’m onboard with a memento mori ring with teeth but…with teeth of my loved one, not random teeth. That’s just weird.

    I know I could google it, but I think of the Devil’s Bible as from Aziraphale’s collection.

    “Cthupid” doesn’t make me think “aww, cute little wingéd Cthulhu” so much as “insults I hear when your mouth is filled with peanut butter.”
