I was recently invited to my first “Ugly Christmas Party.” Hmm what to wear, what to wear??? I couldn’t find an ugly Christmas Sweater for the low so I decided to just make my own. I browsed my favorite thrift store and Pinterest to get some ideas.
This diy is super easy and didn’t take me much time to complete.
- thrifted sweater (or any sweater you don’t mind painting on)
- white fabric paint
- sponge brush
- reindeer template
The hardest thing with this diy is making the reindeer template. I looked on a picture on the internet and free handed it. I am no kind of artist so I was happy that it came out looking like it is suppose to.
1. Layout your sweater
2. Trace around the reindeer template you made with a pencil or sharpie
3. Take the template off the sweater and fill in with white paint. Don’t forget to go over the sharpie with the paint.
I ended up adding a red bow and some battery operated lights that I found at the Dollar Tree. Everyone loved it.
