Ugly Christmas Sweaters
 are all the rage this holiday season. Ugly Christmas sweater contests are often held at office parties, school functions, parades, family gatherings and other holiday events. Sure, one can purchase an ugly Xmas sweater at a retail store or online via Amazon, but creating a gawdy Christmas sweater is much more fun!

To create a unique, one-of-a-kind, tacky Christmas sweater, supplies needed include:

- Any Christmas d├ęcor: garland, ribbon, ornaments, stockings, stuffed plush, velvet bowsbattery operated lights or purchase an Instant Ugly Sweater kit
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Scissors
Sweatshirt, sweater or vest

One can start with a solid plain canvas (red, white or green sweatshirt / sweater). Or, one can begin with a patterned Christmas shirt and simply add decorations to make the sweater even uglier. To save money on apparel, check your own closets or secondhand stores for pre-owned clothing.

Decorating ugly sweaters can be a fun family activity any time of the year, but especially during the Thanksgiving holiday! Gather extra Christmas decorations and allow the children to design the ugly clothing by positioning the decorations on the clothing. For safety, parents should use the hot glue gun or carefully supervise older children using hot glue. Once the gawdy sweaters are crafted, wear them shopping on Black Friday, to the office or on Christmas Eve / Day. Ladies, style your hair with a Reindeer Sock Bun and add a tulle skirt in Christmas colors to complete the outfit. Guys, try adding a Christmas tie to complete the ugly look!
