Friday December 20th is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day!
Last year I made this for the office Ugly Christmas Sweater Party and won first place.
I hand painted the bricks on. Cut and sewed the fireplace. Sewed on the tinsel fireplace mantel and the stockings hanging from it.
I didn’t have as much time this year so I decided to go a little more simple.
I went to Goodwill first to grab a red sweater than raided the Dollar Store for supplies.
Here’s what I came up with:
My supplies included a felt Elf, hand held mirror, Elf door hanger, pom poms, green diamond stickers and rope tinsel.
I sewed the felt Elf onto the middle then cut up the door hanger and sewed that to the bottom. Next, I sewed the pom poms around the top and tinsel to make the arrow. Then I finished with the green diamond stickers I hoped looked like Elf ears.
Now here’s the fun part…
When my boss commented on my sweater I told him to look in the mirror and said “Yeah it’s the ugliest sweater, right?”
Luckily, I wasn’t fired 🙂
But I didn’t win (he was on the judging panel after all)
Meghan won with her one of a kind unicorn ugly sweater and wears the tinsel crown for Ugliest Christmas Sweater this year…literally!
