All of my ugly holiday sweaters were long-gone. Having donated them to good-will, by now they have made somebody else big bucks or fond memories.
I had a nice red ski sweater in my closet so all I needed was decorations. I purchased two identical Christmas stockings and got to work. It was simple.
Make An Ugly Holiday Sweater in Two Easy Steps
- Cut out the decoration from the front of the stocking.
- Using a needle and thread, loosely baste them onto your sweater like an applique. Light stitching means they can easily be removed later, restoring the sweater back to its original condition!
When I walked into school that day, one little girl pointed at me and said “I had a Christmas stocking that looked just like your sweater last year!” LOL
