Ugly Christmas Sweater Craft

It is officially December! That means it is time for our first Christmas craft of 2019. To kick things off, we made a super fun ugly Christmas sweater! This activity is great for kids from two to six and can be done at home or in a classroom. This is very much an open ended activity, so I will list the materials that we used, but you can use anything you have laying around the house.

Materials Used

  • Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Tinsel
  • Crinkle Paper
  • Pom-Poms

I started by letting my toddler pick out the color she wanted her sweater to be. Next, I drew and cut out a sweater like shape. It took me two tries to get something that looked anything like a sweater.

After it was cut, I helped my toddler put glue all over the sweater shape. Next, she got to work gluing on the assorted craft supplies.

The end result was a perfect ugly Christmas sweater!

If you like this craft, please share it with a friend!

  1. BAH HA HA HA YES! I am soooo NOT CRAFTY EITHER – legit NO CRAFT BONE in my body. I am so not creative and you know what, that’s A OK with me. THIS iS WHY HOME GOODS and MARSHALL’S EXISTS! lol!

  2. What a fun idea. I’m going to visit my granddaughter in a few weeks, I may give it a try with her.

  3. Such a cute and easy idea (as always!). Perfect for this time of year when it’s not unusual to get stuck inside because of weather, have kiddos going stir-crazy from being cooped up, etc…

  4. That sounds amazingly creative.
    Maybe a child after such fun will discover his passion and become a famous fashion designer 🙂
