Supplies:

  • 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.
