Insects on Etsy

I buy almost as much as I sell on Etsy.com. I love finding unique handmade items, especially when they involve insects.

I’d like to share with you some of my favorite insect-themed shops/items that I have found recently. Click the images to go to the listing pages where you can buy them!

This amazing mantis image was created by Nadilyn Beato – her shop is full of amazing organisms, mostly invertebrates and reptiles. If you love charismatic (and slightly creepy) creatures, you’ll find something to covet in her shop.

I absolutely love the whimsical style of this artist, Lulunjay. I have two of her rabbit prints hanging in my house, and I’ll probably buy some of her insect prints for my office. Her work is of animals doing “human” things, like this bee drinking a coffee.

It’s really difficult to choose a favorite image from OniOniOniArt’s shop, they’re all so wonderfully adorable. This print is of an owlfly. She has a lot of insects, reptiles, and cats (great combination!). Check out these fruit fly cards if you still need a Valentine’s day card.

One day, when I make millions as a professor (ha!), I’ll buy a whole set of matching cockroach dishes from foldedpigs.

As soon as I figure out what I’ll make with it, I’m going to buy some of this moth-print fabric by LilaRubyKingShop.

Do you have any favorite insect-themed shops on Etsy? Please share in the comments!
