Google+ That Flour Child: Ugly Christmas Sweater

Ugly Christmas Sweater

It's that time of year again!  Ugly Christmas parties are probably my favourite type of Christmas party.  My roommates and decided this year to mostly DIY our sweaters because the thrift stores are already picked through.  If you want to know how I made my snowman sweater, read on.

I picked up a $10 sweater at Walmart along with some felt, fabric glue and black fabric paint.

I started by cutting three circles out of white felt and glued them on with the fabric glue.  I also cut out a hat and twig arms with black felt.  I added a little bit of red ribbon to the hat as well.

I drew on the eyes, mouth and buttons with black fabric paint.  I used an embroidery needle and some old yarn I had to stitch in his scarf.  The nose is made with rolled up white felt, glued into a cone and then painted orange.

I added little sparkly foam snowflakes (leftover from the beer advent calendar) and cut some star shaped ones out of the same foam we used for the glitter letter banner.

Do you have an epic Christmas sweater?
