ADULT: DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater

Ugly/Tacky Christmas sweater parties are so fun and can bring out the most creative, festive outfits I’ve ever seen over the holidays.  This DIY ugly Christmas sweater is super easy to create and if it’s not “ugly” enough you can for sure add more to it.  Erika showed this photo on a post where she did a fun tutorial for a DIY dog sweater so she didn’t write a tutorial but it looks easy enough.  From what I can see you just need some mini Christmas ornaments, a bow and a sweatshirt in any color you choose then attach the items by sewing or hot gluing them on in a tree pattern.  You could even step it up a notch and not only make it “ugly” but also noisy if you did bells in place of some of the ornaments!  Get creative and have fun!

ADULTS: DIY Ugly Christmas Tree Sweater

This is by far the best DIY ugly Christmas tree sweater I’ve ever seen. Heathiepants posted this picture on instagram almost a year ago, and it’s shown up all over pinterest! I love that she utilized her whole body and when she raises her arms the tree is formed… perfect! She added a mini hula hoop to the bottom of her Wal Mart sweat shirt to make it flair out just right! Another great thing, this is a no sew sweater, she used safety pins to pin the garland, bells, and tinsel onto her sweater!
