Design your own Christmas Ugly Sweater – with Printables. Christmas jumpers are all the rage now, the uglier the better so why not have some fun and host a design your own Christmas ugly sweater party this year?
I first saw this done with felt and tiny little hangers on the Fab Aunty Peaches Blog and I wanted to simplify it so it was a fabulous kids craft, oh and to reduce the glitter for those of you that hate it! In fact, you don’t get any loose glitter with the fab Bostik Glitter Glue pens. Or you could just drop the glitter glue and sequins and just colour in your designs.

How to Design your own Christmas Ugly Sweater
Print out your page of blank sweaters. I printed ours on white lightweight cardstock, but you could also print them out on coloured paper or card.
Or if you have a Cricut Machine you can upload our design and use it there.
Then get out the glitter glue and sequins and get creating!
The brilliant thing about the glitter glue is that you can stick the sequins to it.
Plus the glitter doesn’t go all over the place.
You can have so much fun and kids love glitter glue.
We wanted to display our ugly sweaters, so we decided to make a garland with them. Using an 1/8 inch hole punch put 2 holes for the twine to go through.
The thread the twine through and hang.
You could also punch a hole in the centre and hang on the tree.
I love how they turned out – just wonderful.

I always print my printables directly onto 160 gsm cardstock using my Epson Ecotank Printer rather than regular paper, this way they are a little more durable and the pens do not bleed through to the other side. However, if you do not have a home printer then just pop to a library and use theirs.
