Are you planning an Ugly Sweater party or will you be attending one? Start your quest for the ugliest sweater by checking out this list! You can get one of these and then take it a step further by personalizing it. If you don’t want to buy a new sweater, check out local discount or second hand shops. If you can’t find a sweater that you think is ugly enough, you can easily add some great ugly details!
There are many ways you can add your own touches to an ugly Christmas sweater without having to know how to knit or sew! Considering it will only be worn for a limited time, you can simply glue on any extra embellishments or use fabric paint to doodle or write a special message.
My son won an ugly sweater contest a few years ago by adding some personal touches to an ugly, store-bought Christmas sweater. We decorated the sweater with some gaudy garland and jingle bells, but won it for him was what we did to the back of the sweater… The back was a solid red color and we used fabric paint to write this joke — “What is the difference between Santa and Tiger Woods? Santa only has 3 hos!” (Remember this was a few years ago when Tiger’s adulterous behavior was big news.) I wish I had taken a picture of it because it is too late now because someone actually bought it at a garage sale we held!
Here are some I found online that are prime for personalizing!
This is a great sweater to start with, especially if you don’t have a crafts cupboard at home. Not only do you get the ugly sweater (choose from 4 designs), you also get a variety of items to make your sweater uglier.
Again, by itself this reindeer sweater might actually look kind of cute, but there are plenty of options for details. You can wrap rudolph’s antlers with lights or garland, add glitter or sequins to the snowflakes, or make the snowballs pop by using pom-poms.
As a grandma, I can definately see the humor in this ugly Christmas sweater… and I can also see not only adding extra embellishments to the sweater, but also adding some dripping blood to parts of your body?
This is the opposite of the other sweater designs I shared. This one has a lot going on (but don’t let that scare you away from adding your own finishing touches) and there are several other busy designs you can choose from.
So what do you think of this collection? Will you be going to an ugly Christmas sweater party this year?
