Christmas is right around the corner, which means many holiday parties to attend! Holiday parties are my favorite because you get to spend time with loved ones and dress festively in reds/greens. But for this particular party I decided to wear my very own homemade “ugly” Christmas sweater which was very easy and fun to make (steps below).

How to make your own “ugly” Christmas sweater:

  1. First, you’ll need a cheap sweater (mine I found on sale at Forever 21… score!). Here are some cheap sweaters you could use option 1option 2option 3.
  2. Next, go to your local craft store (mine is Jo-Ann’s) and shop around for Holiday themed buttons, appliqués, bows, pom-poms, glitter etc.
  3. Lastly, you need a hot glue gun and some hot glue sticks to glue all your cute holiday finds onto your sweater. See, three easy steps… its as simple as that!

*Don’t worry about making it look perfect. Always remember its meant to look disheveled … its an “ugly” Christmas sweater! So put some holiday music on and have fun with it.*
