Do you believe that wherever you shop right now they are going for $20 today? Wow! Who knew I once had a small fortune in ugly sweaters. Easy come - easy go!
So this year, when our student council decided that they were going to host a faculty ugly sweater contest before Christmas break, I had to think of something quick!
No way am I paying $20 for a sweater that I don't want. So, inspired by Angie's ugly deer wreath sweater [below], I set out to create my own ugly sweater. Mind you, I had two bucks and 1 hour to do it. Dollar Tree here I come!
I had a nice red ski sweater in my closet so all I needed was decorations. I purchased two identical Christmas stockings and got to work. It was simple.
Make An Ugly Holiday Sweater in Two Easy Steps
- Cut out the decoration from the front of the stocking.
- Using a needle and thread, loosely baste them onto your sweater like an applique. Light stitching means they can easily be removed later, restoring the sweater back to its original condition!
Do you own any ugly holiday sweaters?
Ever make one yourself?
