Ditch your boring Christmas sweater this year for something that shows just how much you love being jolly. This anything-but-ugly Christmas sweater is made using ribbon, beads, pipe cleaners, felt and DIY pom poms! You can chose between a festive tree or a merry gnome. It’s perfect for those looking to jazz-up an old sweater or up-cycle one from a thrift store.

The ugly Christmas sweater is suitable for all ages and skill levels. It will be most enjoyed by people old enough to use hot glue and those who have had practice tying a simple knot.
