Let’s Get Started On Our Ugly Christmas Sweater Ornament Craft!
After gathering supplies, draw the shape of a sweater onto craft foam (choose any color). Alternatively, you could use paper, I just find that craft foam holds up better, over the years.
Invite children to cut out the sweater. Create many of these so children can make all sorts of ugly Christmas sweaters! (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. Make it a family contest—who can create the ugliest sweater? Some ideas include reindeer, candy canes, strings of ornaments, Christmas trees, presents, and Santa’s.
Even better, suggest that your family and guests to wear their favorite ugly sweaters to your crafting party, for inspiration!
Secure ribbon to the back of the ornament and share with a friend! This ornament will be a big hit when paired with a homemade batch of Christmas cookies! This craft is the best way to keep kids occupied during a Christmas Cookie exchange party!
