Ugly Sweater Party

I went to an Ugly Sweater party Saturday night. Do you have any idea how challenging it is to make a sweater U-G-L-Y!! The daughter ran into Goodwill and came out with me a red fleece pullover that had snowmen sledding on some snow on the front. Well, that wasn't ugly... I tried a few things but it sure didn't win any prizes!!

I hotglue gunned some polyester filler over the snowdrifts....

I had a reindeer hiding in a palm tree...

I put fluffy balls and fringe around the neckline, sleeves and hem...

And, here is how it turned out. I sure hate that I used the hotglue gun on it... that fleece is warm and I might could have worn it but alas... when you hot glue it stays!
Oh and did I tell you that I found my Christmas merry-go-round that I hadn't seen in several years! It's on the hutch in my kitchen now. Sure brightens things up with the red, yellow, green and blue. And, the music is so obnoxious! But, I love it.

  1. Hello Latane, YOu look so cute in your ugly sweater. It does look nice and warm! I really like your merry-go-round. I don't think I have ever seen one like it. Very nice.

  2. I think you look beautiful in your red Christmas sweater.....all snuggled up on the sofa.....sorry, but it doesn't look ugly at all.

  3. Love your header! The ugly sweater, well, it's ugly:) Sorry you didn't win the prize! Cute Merry-go-round!
    Merry Christmas!

  4. Ahhhhh---I love all of the old Christmas Sweaters... I have my share and so does hubby... I don't think of them as UGLY... They are treasures to me... Yours looked great and you were all decked up for the season!


  5. What a fun idea for a party! You looks so cute in your red fleece re-decorated pullover! :-)

    I had forgotten about that Merry Go Round! I am so glad you found it!

  6. Hi Latane, I am not surprised you did not win any prizes at the Ugly Sweater party, yours is Christmassy and looks so cozy and cheerful!Christmas sweaters are big herewith trees and rudolphs etc! Wishing you and the family a very happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year.
