“Ugly” Christmas Sweater- DIY


Have you noticed a new Christmas fashion emerging in retail stores?  The Ugly Christmas Sweater is a new trend that can end up costing you a pretty penny.  My daughter found one online for $75!   I am going  to show you how you can make one for almost nothing by using what you already own.  Not only will it be unique and in a class of it’s own, but you will have a blast making it!


Old sweater or a long sleeve shirt (take it from the closet)

Christmas odds and ends…garland, stockings, ornaments, candy canes, etc…(found em in our Christmas decor totes)

Hot glue gun

E 6000


What we did:

Jammed out to our favorite Christmas carols and giggled as we 3 dimensionally designed our sweater.  Our sweater is actually a long sleeve shirt with sweater like arms.  It has a pink cheerleader image on the front, which was easily covered with our Christmas Trim.  Using hot glue and E 6000 we secured the stocking, fake snow, and ornaments in place.

My daughter designed her “Ugly” Christmas Sweater for a contest at school.  She was feeling very confident and very proud of her creation.
