Ah! It’s that time of year, you’re about to clock out on your Friday evenings or, finish that last final and, head to those holiday parties. These fun nights spent with friends and family make the cold weather just a little more bearable. We have one creative genius to thank for this gathering time, the inventor of the Ugly Sweater. Yes, that’s right, the ugly sweater. This persons not only turned down the awkwardness of family parties but, they helped us escape the interrogation from, “Aunt Betty” by directing the attention to the “ugly sweater” you’re wearing. If that’s not genius, we don’t know what is.
Well we didn’t invent the ugly sweater or, the magic that consumes it but, Faviana sure is here to help you. Continue reading for Faviana’s guide to the perfect DIY ugly sweater.
This is the base of your masterpiece so, pick wisely. We recommend an oversized knit, more real-estate for festivities. Sticking with Christmas or Hanukkah colors work best, red, green, white, silver, blue. And, if you find one that is fuzzy or glittery, you’re that much more on top of the game.
Whether it is recreating Santa, a Christmas tree, dreidel or, a menorah, make sure to have something festive on your sweater. This really differentiates your sweater from just a plain old sweater, that you decided to throw stuff on.
