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 2: Glue! For the Santa sweater, we added white pom pom balls to the beard and snowflake shaped sequin around as accouterments.
