It's the most wonderful time of the year to be ugly...and we have you covered! Be the hit of the office party or family gathering with one of these creations you can totally DIY yourself! From kittens to red cups, here's some kitschy cute looks that will take your holiday style up a notch!
Kitten Mitten alert! If you're a cat lover or a fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, we think you might be smitten by these cats in mittens! Designer Celery Jones simply applied children's mittens with Aleene's Quick Dry Fabric Fusion, then embellished playful little kitties all over peeping, playing, and pouncing! And a cat shirt wouldn't be complete without a ball of yarn. This sweater vest really is the cat's meow! Get the full tutorial here.
Have a cup of CHEER! in this sweater inspired by the infamous Starbuck's red cup debate. To make this one, designer Celery Jones, cut a red cup in half and clinked together her Tulip dimensional paints to create the faux studded letters and starburst. If you notice even the cups are made to order using the puffy paint! This look is sure to garner a latte laughs!
Everyone at the party will want to rock around you when you wear this tree hoodie sweatshirt. Make your own felt ornaments and embellish them with dimensional paint to accent. Trim the tree with care by adding faux fir needles and a star on top!
Who knew Santa liked to go casual in a classic hoodie sweatshirt? This design created by Celery Jones, uses Tulip dimensional paint for the belt and giant pom poms for the beard. Oh Santa, you crazy hipster you!
Forget the winter wonderland, this year it's all about the Wiener Wonderland! This adorable ugly sweater by Pattie Wilkinson was created using Tulip dimensional paint and Aleene's Quick Dry Fabric Fusion for applying all the embellishments. Talk about Weiner-Weiner Chicken Dinner!
The sweater is the best of two ugly worlds - the classic ugly tie and sweater! Designer Pattie Wilkinson used ties not only for the tree, but also the bow on top and on the sleeves. She even added buttons for ornaments! At your Christmas party, we think this one will TIE for first place! Get the how-to here.
