Creating Your Unique Ugly Christmas Sweaters
The Overly Ornamented Christmas Tree Sweater
Transform your sweater into a walking Christmas tree with an overload of ornaments. Don’t forget to add a star or an angel at the top – on your shoulder, perhaps?
The Santa’s Mishap Sweater
Craft a funny scene featuring Santa. Maybe he’s stuck in a chimney, or his reindeer have taken a detour. Use felt to create the characters and set the scene!
The Too-Much-Tinsel Sweater
Wrap your sweater in layers of colorful tinsel. It’s shiny, it’s festive, and it’s definitely over the top!
The Rudolph’s Revenge Sweater
Why should Rudolph always guide the sleigh? Maybe this year, he’s taking a break! Craft a hilarious scene with Rudolph relaxing while Santa does the work.
The Grumpy Cat Sweater
Who said Christmas sweaters have to be traditional? A grumpy cat wearing a Santa hat could be just the twist you’re looking for!
