Introduction: DIY Ugly Xmas Jumper(hidden Moral in INTRO)

Who doesn't love Christmas?!

I sure do...today we (me and you) are making an ugly DIY sweater/jumper!

If you wonder were the ugliness is...It's a link to the character where is wally(who wears glasses)... my message is "glasses makes you look "ugly"" which i absolutely disagree with but I'm showing the beauty in the magic of the Christmas spirit which is to be loving and kind...so to all of you people who think wearing glasses is "ugly" it's not...my little sister has been bullied in the past for wearing glasses, they also proceed to call her "nerdy" and "ugly"...so i wanted to show that in my project today!! Enough of that LET'S GET GOING!!!

Supplies:

  • sweater
  • tinsel
  • felt sheet
  • lights
  • scissors
  • glue gun
  • mini ornaments
  • Pen

    I think it would be a great idea if you used Velcro to attach your design. Use the soft Velcro side on the sweater and the picky side on the design. That way the sweater is washable and also, you could change the design by attaching, snowflakes, gingerbread men, Christmas tree ornaments or whatever makes your sweater the ugliest. You get my vote. I think your sweater is wonderful.

    Thank you so much, this is some good ideas + feedback!! :)
    (the ugliness is portrayed in a different form - in the intro)... Next time I would definitely try your option, which is to use Velcro!!
    Thanks again for the lovely comment.

    No problem. Your item it far from ugly. It is very beautiful.
    There are so many Christmas ideas that could be used for a "Velcroed" sweater. I really hope you have fun with this. Maybe make a business of it and sell separate design kits to change or rearrange the sweater from year to year. If I were younger and had the business connections, I'd do it myself. LOL. Merry Christmas to you. I hope you do well in the contest.
