I love those ugly Christmas sweaters and find them so cute! I've checked some out online, and they're really expensive! Plus it's so much fun creating your own unique one, so that's what I did!



If you want to see how I made this crazy sweater, check out my video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9Q5u1Txeg8

Supplies needed here: http://www.nonachewy.blogspot.com/2013/11/diy-ugly-christmas-sweater.html

This was under $20! Some of the supplies I already had too. Yes, it's not the most conventional thing to wear lol but it really does bring me that holiday joy wearing it Smiley

HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Very unbelieve-ably gaudy! The perfect ugly sweater for the task! I love it.  Grin
I will bet you make heads turn for wearing this one!
Are you a walking Christmas tree, or what???
Nice job, and you captured a great holiday spirit there.
Next one you make? Add on some battery powered lights  Grin
Still chuckling too much to post. This is unreal!

Whoops...looking again, I believe you did add the lights. Nice touch!!!

I just can't quit looking at this! And I spotted there on the left, where you put the battery pack. In the Santa pouch on your right hip. Great idea! I think I will "borrow" that if I make one of these. It looks fun to wear. Your sweet smile says it all.  Grin What about adding a colorful bow in your hair? Well, second thought, that might detract from the outfit... your call.  Wink
