Here we are again in the season of ugly sweaters. If the idea is the more tacky and over top the sweater, the better, why not create a sweater that’s one of a kind? In this case, we’re talking about achieving perfect tinsel, sparkle, + Christmas embellishment placement.
I hit up my local Value Village to get my goods. I’m not a sewer. I don’t have the patience for it. And I didn’t want to wait for glue to dry (again, with the patience). So this ‘ugly sweater’ is the easiest thing to create, while fully living up to it’s name.
- Thrifted Sweater (green)
- Felt Balls
- Safety Pins
First, I pinned the tinsel on my thrifted sweater. Then the ornaments. Then the felt balls. (simple direction would be an understatement). I safety pinned EVERYTHING. It’s quick + easy, and you aren’t damaging the sweater…in case you wanted to wear it again or reuse it for something else!
BTW, I got all my materials from Value Village. They have a large selection of new + used christmas decorations so I scored on everything! Plus, I was able to pick up some fun items for an upcoming White Elephant gift exchange.
So, if you’re rushed for time before your annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Partay, think about this easy peasy squeezy look.
