Christmas Sweater Decorations

Let’s Do This!

Start with a simple sweatshirt or sweater. We highly suggest selecting a sweater with a plain canvas allowing your creativity to run wild! 


Lay the sweater out on a flat surface for optimal decorating. Then, apply tinsel garlands in a series of rows with a hot glue gun. Be careful with your fingers! 


Continue decorating by adding Christmas ball ornaments. Disperse them evenly between the rows of tinsel garlands. 


Adorn the collar and the rest of the sweater with little red bows. Add as you see fit. 

Finish off the Christmas flare by adding lights (optional) and gold beads as wrist fringe (ideal for people who are ready to groove).

There you have it! The tackiest Christmas sweater out there for less than $30 in 5 simple steps. 

Make sure to dance and shine bright this holiday season. It’s the moment to push it over the top, enjoy it!
