We get pretty excited around here when it comes to altering fashion!  Making UGLY sweaters for Christmas is fun for everyone, even dolls.  Char made one for Ruthie last week and this week is Nicki’s turn! Nicki is pretty adorable modeling her ugly sweater in the snow.

It was fun to create.  This is what we used…

Aleene’s Fabric Fusion is the best when it comes to stuff like this.  We cut out the green layered Christmas tree from Kunin Felt then used the Quick Dry version to adhere it together and also to the doll sized sweater.  We used it to add the ric-rac too as it works for ribbons and stuff like this as well.

Then we added details with the Tulip Slicks 3D paints, added buttons and let it dry.  Here she is holding it while it dries, anxious to try it on!

Ta da!

Ugly sweaters are really mostly adorable ones.  Here is a fun printable of a an ugly sweater that you can print out and decorate.  I would love to see what you come up with so please share on our Facebook page or on your social media and tag it #uglysweaterart.

Here are lots of fun ugly sweater ideas!

Happy Creating Fun Ways to Celebrate,
