I've noticed lots of sites have been popping up to supply the perfect "ugly christmas sweater" which I feel takes away all the joy from finding these in thrift stores; not to mention, who wants to pay $30 for an ugly sweater? What really makes them great is that they were originally designed without the intention of being ugly, and they've eventually retired to thrift stores across the nation once their owners have realized their fashion disaster.
I went with Zack last night to find sweaters for the party tomorrow night. We found the most
- Sewable ornament(s) that's flat on one side
- Needle and thread
I would NOT suggest glue. Not even liquid stitch, given the nature of sweaters it'd probably give you more hassle than convenience. I'm not so great with a needle and thread but it doesn't have to be perfect. The hat on the santa made it super easy to work with, so I suggest a bit of cloth on the ornament if you can. I might add some pompoms later to fill up the sides, but I'm cool with it the way it is.
|X = where I tacked things into place with needle and thread|
- Try on the sweater and pin where the main attraction(s) will go. Take off sweater.
- With a needle and thread, tack objects into place.
- Be festive.
Are any of you sporting "ugly christmas sweaters this season? I'd love to see! Link it up in the comments below :)
