It’s the holidays which means a lot of parties. Ugly Christmas sweaters are all the rage! You can buy them, but why not wear something unique? I converted sweaters we had into fun holiday sweaters with a craft kit from a dollar store. You too can create a quick fun look in minutes without spending a lot of money. What could be more fun than your own DIY ugly Christmas sweater?
We used old sweaters we had on hand. My husband had a solid red 3/4 zip sweater that he didn’t wear anymore because it was too large. I picked an old argyle sweater that had become frumpy from being the bands stretched out. We picked a Christmas tree kit and gingerbread person kit respectively.
DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater
Sweater out of your closet
Felt holiday kit from dollar store
Hot glue gun & sticks
Heat up the hot glue gun.
Glue together the felt decoration kit.
Glue the felt decoration to the front of the sweater. I glued ours in various spots along the edge.
Wear the sweater to the next holiday party.
That’s it. These sweaters went together in minutes. It took longer for the glue gun to heat up than the actual construction. I love how they turned out. My daughter thought the gingerbread person on the argyle was funky, but that is what makes it ugly. It would be easy to really ugly the sweaters up by gluing on bows, bells, or small Christmas decorations.
