It’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Time!

So this year, Blake and I both had company Christmas parties with an ugly Christmas sweater theme. I go big or go home, so it had to be perfect. And so when I stumbled upon a couple’s sweater concept that included one end of the a reindeer barfing holiday cheer, and the other end crapping it, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. And so you have our ugly sweaters…

I picked up the sweat shirts at Wal-Mart. I cut out the reindeer from a canvas brown fabric in 8 pieces (head, torso, bottom, tail and 4 legs). The antlers and feet are felt. I initially thought I would iron on the fabric, but it didn’t seem sturdy, so I stitched it using a multi-colored cross stitch thread. I hot glued everything else. I bought all of the decorations at the dollar store – it’s a mix of clay Christmas ornaments, metallic table scatter trees and snowflakes and then some glitter covered holly leaves and angels. I worked about an hour on it each night for a week but it was well worth it! And while we didn’t win either of our sweater competitions (we failed to properly promote our sweaters), I was very pleased with the final product.
