I have an easy and funny ugly sweater for you! (and links to bunch more fun ugly sweater ideas!) We’re officially gearing up for all those UGLY SWEATER PARTIES this holiday season and today I’ve teamed up with an awesome group of bloggers to give you tons of Ugly Sweater Party Ideas + a giveaway to help YOU get a head start on your holiday shopping!!
Disclaimer…these are my sisters!!! and they have a sense of humor like me…
The thrift store is FULL of sweaters…all different sizes and colors. and really…lots of them are ugly in their own right! but I chose a simple red one! I ran to the dollar store and got 3 frames and a silver garland. Add in some Expressions Vinyl and you are ready to start!
I took apart the frame…this frame was PERFECT. it had a place at the top to slide pictures in and out (which makes this ugly sweater interchangeable!)
Add some hot glue and just glue directly to the sweater!
cut out vinyl and iron it on (pressing 15 seconds each spot!) If vinyl is out of your skill set…white paint or puff paint would be great too!
Then I added the garland around the sleeves, neck, and arms (using hot glue of course)
Then you just add photos of your hos! You can go to a family party and add pictures of your sisters…then go to a friend party and switch out the photos for them!
Now check out what my other blogging friends came up with for their Ugly Sweater Party Ideas this holiday season!! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway for $130 in COLD HARD CASH below!!

Kimbo, this is just too fun! I’d love to be at an ugly Christmas sweater party with you!
I LOVE this sweater and your sense of humor! Sadly, I have no sisters but I’m lucky to have friend sisters and we all have the same humor! So glad I found your site! One day I WILL make the sweater!
