Andy and I are big fans of the Ugly Christmas Sweater party! It’s fun, casual and easy! I made us some very fancy DIY ugly sweaters for last years tacky sweater season, and Andy’s sweater recently got a trim for these bad boys! If you’re new here, I’ve got a few ugly Christmas sweater ideas:
It’s like the fun game in the back of the People magazine, can you spot the difference:
It was actually Andy’s idea! I told him I needed to run out to buy some used sweaters. He suggested I cut off the sleeves of his sweater! He wanted a vest, ha! We live in Texas, who needs sleeves anyway! I used the sleeves of his sweater to make fancy ugly sweaters for bottles. This is so dang easy, y’all. I used some good ol’ glitter fabric paint and red bows that I saved from a Christmas tree last year to make my bottles festive!
His 2 sleeves made 4 bottle sweaters. I literally just tied the red bow around the sweater and the neck of the bottle. Bam. No sewing or gluing or anything at all. Just a little fabric glitter and red bows. The bottom edge of the bottle sweater is raw. But, look how cute?! Perfect, for an ugly sweater party!
Have you ever hosted or attended an ugly sweater party? Anymore fun (and easy) decor ideas?! I’d love to hear…

That is hysterical! I love the wine sweaters! Great idea! Happy Holidays!
These aren’t “ugly” but they are a version of a Christmas sweater – http://diywithgk.blogspot.com/2013/12/diy-vintage-christmas-shirts.html. Just thought I’d share 🙂

Haha! I love how in the after picture, he looks so much happier! Who needs sleeves?? I made an ugly Christmas sweater vest for my hubby last year, too. We are in chilly Colorado, but my husband is a big biker dude who is always hot, so the vest suited him better, and looked hysterical. Has sort of a “Cousin Eddie” vibe to it, don’t you think?
Love your bottle sweaters! Happy blog hoppin’!
