If your mom’s 1980′s hand-knit holiday sweater isn’t available for the taking, we have just the solution! With this quick and simple tutorial from Zazzle, we’ll show you how to turn some not-so-ugly sweaters into duds that you’ll be proud to don at your next Ugly Christmas Sweater party.
- Zazzle Ugly Christmas Sweater
- Fabric Glue
- Miscellaneous embellishments for your particular sweater design. We used pom poms, glitter glue, jingle bells, and sequin. Some other ideas for embellishments include: googly eye, pipe cleaners, and confetti.
Step 0.5: *The embellishments you choose may or may not make it through a wash cycle, so be sure to wash it before decorating*
Step 1: Gather your sweater and add any embellishments that work with the sweater’s patterns.
Step 2: Glue! For the Santa sweater, we added white pom pom balls to the beard and snowflake shaped sequin around as accouterments.
To add a bit of obnoxiousness to the old-school, green sweater we added a collar of tiny jingle bells.
We also included gold glitter glue to the tree design and a red glittered dot for Rudolph’s nose.
Step 3: Party! Top your outfit off with a tacky hat and some battery-powered lights. If you throw a Ugly Christmas Sweater Party this holiday season and follow these simple steps, you’re sure to be the Ugliest of the Uglies. You may even get a mistletoe kiss.
