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
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.
Please share your “Ugly” Christmas Sweater pics
and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
