We're officially gearing up for all those UGLY SWEATER PARTIES this holiday season and today I've teamed up with an awesome group of bloggers to give you tons of Ugly Sweater Party Ideas + a giveaway to Target to help YOU get a head start on your holiday shopping!!

13 Ugly Sweater Party Ideas from top bloggers

Check out my tutorial below, then check out what my other blogging friends came up with for their Ugly Sweater Party Ideas this holiday season!! And don't forget to enter the giveaway for $130 in COLD HARD CASH below!!

Now, on to my project!

1.)  Draw a sweater pattern on plain paper.  I always draw my patterns, fold them in half, then cut them out, so that my image is symmetrical.

2.)  Trace sweater pattern onto Kunin Eco-fi® ClassicFelt   Craft Cuts in Neon Green, Pirate Green and Coral Red with Aquarellable pencil by Stabilo.  Writes on any surface and is great for felt!  Cut out sweaters with scissors.

3.)  Decorate with bits of felt, sequins and rhinestones.  Attach decorations with Aleene's® Easy Squeeze Original Tacky Glue from I Love to Create.  

4.)  Embellish your sweaters with Tulip® Dimensional Fabric Paint Colors in Bright Red, Lectric Lime, White and Leaf Green.  Draw on names, let dry.

Use your Personalized Ugly Christmas Sweaters as Place Cards and Party Favors for your Guests!  These would also be cute to use as gift tags on wrapped presents or ornaments on your tree.

Now check out all the inspiration from my crafty blogger friends!

Interesting share. I really loved these photos of fantastic Xmas ugly sweater party. We have also been making plans for Santa themed birthday bash of our son. He wants this theme and we would book best venue New York for this bash.
