A few years ago, when I was pregnant with Ellie, my friends and I had an ugly Christmas sweater party. It was hilarious and ridiculous. We had a lot of fun and totally wanted to do it again. Fast forward a year and ugly Christmas sweaters were suddenly outrageously expensive.
I don’t know about you, but I have zero interest in shelling out $25+ to wear something once and laugh at its sheer ugliness. I’m way too cheap for that.
But I do still love the idea of a good ugly Christmas sweater. It just needs to be a cheap one. Like, maybe, a sweatshirt or sweater that I already own and never wear and a few dollar store embellishments. Now that sounds much better to me.
These 10 ugly Christmas sweater DIYs having varying levels of difficulty, but all of them are nice and cheap. Now. Go forth and get ugly!

I didn’t realize it, but there’s an entire subset of pervy ugly Christmas sweaters that are… um… interesting to say the very least. Since I’m almost always in the company of small children who ask way too many questions, I’m going to go ahead and skip those. But feel free to get lost down the deep, dark rabbit hole of raunchy Christmas sweaters. Just know that what you find can’t be unseen. 😉
