Ugly Christmas Sweater DIY

I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with I Love to Create and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.

For the past few years I have been invited to a couple of Ugly Sweater Christmas Parties. And each year I am always scrambling to find a sweater. I would go to Goodwill, thinking they should have something, but surprisingly they don't have very many. A worker at Goodwill mentioned that ugly sweater parties were becoming quite popular, so they usually sell out of ugly sweaters fast.  This year I will be prepared.  I was sent a kit of sparkles and glitter to decorate my own ugly sweater. This is how I made my ugly sweater, hopefully it will give you some holiday inspiration.

The materials I used for this ugly sweater were as follows:
1 sweater 
1 old child's onesie (optional)
1 set of red poinsettias
Tulip iron-on transfers
Tulip Glitter Dimensional Fabric Paint
Tulip Fashion Glitter
Tulip Fashion Glitter Bond
Aleene's Tacky Glue

The sweater started off pretty ugly itself.  The yarn was mixed rainbow color.  To ornament it and make it even tackier I decided to put fake pointsettias on the sweater.  I put extra glitter on the poinsettia leaves using Tulip Fashion Glitter and Fashion Glitter bond.
To attach the poinsettias onto the sweater I used the existing wire that was on the flowers, but I also secured it with Aleene's tacky glue (seriously the best glue ever, I use it for everything).
I had an old onesie that I cut up to use the snowmen for the sleeves.
To attach the snowmen I used the Aleenes Fabric Glue and the Glitter Dimensional Fabric Paint to make borders. 
Using the iron on glitter paper I cut out Christmas trees.  To cut a perfect tree you first fold the glitter paper in half and cut a triangle.  Then you cut the indentations of the tree.  

Iron on the trees and viola Ugly Christmas Sweater complete.  The possibilities are just endless with the materials from LoveToCreate.
