Supplies Needed

Instructions to Make Ugly Christmas Sweater Ornament Craft

Step 1

After gathering supplies, draw the shape of a sweater onto craft foam (choose any color).

Alternatively, you could use a piece of paper – like scrapbook or construction paper, but I find that the craft foam holds up better over the years.

Step 2

The next step is to invite children or party guests to cut out the sweater. Create many of these so children can make all sorts of ugly Christmas sweaters!

Tip: Depending on the age and number of children, you might even want to prep this ahead of time, so that the kids can start decorating, right away.

Use sequins, craft foam, paper, beads, markers, ribbon, or anything else you can find around your house, to decorate the sweaters.

Some ideas include reindeer, candy canes, strings of ornaments, Christmas trees, presents, and Santa’s.
