Step 1: SUGGESTED SUPPLIES

  • SCISSORS
  • HOT GLUE GUN
  • GLUE STICKS
  • TINY LIGHTS
  • CHRISTMAS FLOWERS
  • GENTLY USED ORNAMENTS
  • PENCIL/PEN

Step 2: DISASSEMBLE TIME

If using this step use caution...

When disassembling any ornaments, that will need to lay flat against your sweater speedily take your time!!!

*Large Golden ornament - locate weak point and split down the seam speedily but carefully!

* Medium Red ornament - with caution use scissors to poke a hole in the center and then carefully cut it in half due to it being made of styrofoam

Step 3: Application Time

For this design or any other design it's recommended to start with the larger then life piece first

For this example it's the center ornament in gold; build on that and began to let creativity soar!

Don't get suck!

You got this!

There is no wrong way!


Step 4: Yes....More!

Hot Glue is our Friend! Makes Assembling Fast!

Apply and Glue and Apply and Glue and then...Do it some more!

Let Creative Flow!

Step 5: Lights and Pipe-Cleaners!

For the lights:

Check to make sure they work

Pre-place the lights were you desire for them to be (checking to ensure they lay the way you want)

Using scissors, put little slits were the light bulb is going to be (make sure not to make slit to big)

For the Pipe-Cleaners:

Place them where you want them

simply poke pipe-cleaners in the natural knitted holes of the sweater

with a pencil to make them look like springy or to have a curly flair wrap pipe cleaner around the pencil

Step 6: SO COOL, Step BACK AND LOOK

IS IT DONE YET!

WAIT FOR IT...

Step 7: I GOT YOUR BACK!

LET'S LIGHT IT UP!

These little lights were so small that they easily fit in the natural slits of the sweater!

Easily, Peasy!

Step 8: But We Ain't Done...

HMMM Got to have more! Yes, more ribbons, more pipe cleaners

Literally, place each pipe cleaner in the space between the light wires.

this is done for added security ;) (so, the light don't slip out)

Step 9: Ugly Sweater Oh My Back Complete!

Ugly Sweater from back to front!
