With Ugly Christmas Sweater party season upon us, everyone is scrambling for the perfect ugly Christmas sweater.  The crafters at My Ugly Christmas Sweater can make you the perfect ugly Christmas sweater, but if you’re in a rush, or you’re short on funds, or you wear a hard-to-find size…maybe you want to make your own! 

Here’s how to make your own DIY ugly Christmas sweater. Perfect for the non-crafty “I-don’t-even-own-a-sewing-needle” person.

Step #1: Go to Kmart or Walmart and buy a reindeer stuffed animal AND a box of safety pins.  Finding the safety pins may be the most difficult part of this exercise, so just ask customer service when you get there.

Although Ugly Christmas Sweater parties have been around for about ten years or so, there are a lot of newcomers to the game - people who are just getting their very first ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater Party’ invitation.  This begs the question: What should I wear to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party

Don’t over-analyze who else will be there and who will be wearing what…the general rule of thumb at parties with a tacky holiday-wear theme is “go big or go home”. Whether it’s an office party, a house party, or a city-wide fundraiser, there will most likely be a contest for “Most Ugly Outfit” and you should dress to win.

Generally speaking, there are six types of Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Online stores like My Ugly Christmas Sweater have something for everyone. Have fun shopping and embrace the ugly.   

1) Boring  (off the shelf).

Nothing special here - just a sweater with a little design. It’ll get you in the door, but c’mon! You want to have more fun than that!


2) Not-so-boring (off the shelf)

Now this is better! Great design and color - sure to get some looks at the party!


3) Homemade or Embellished (by you or by someone else)

Great example of an ugly sweater made uglier! Channel your inner-crafty and don’t be timid! 


4) Vintage-Retro (80’s)

Ahhh, these were the days! A beautiful sweater came with big padded shoulders and a thick knit.  Extra points having a long-style sweater and wearing leggings. 


5) Vintage-Vintage (really Vintage)

Wondering what ‘Really Vintage’ means? In the world of tacky holiday sweaters, ‘really vintage’ sweaters are itchy and have reindeer or moose on the front, back, and sleeves. A great choice for someone with a conservative fashion sense.


6) Over-the-top (3D, Lights, One-of-a-kind, 2-sided)

This is it! The holy-grail of ugly Christmas Sweaters! Over-the-top and dripping in tacky goodies. Lights, pompoms, 3D embellishments, and bells and bows. The sky is the limit when you are going for the ‘1st Place Ugly’ prize! 


Rock the ugly this year! Go for the win. Happy Hunting!
