Combine them all for the best ugly sweater party your friends have ever seen.
Items needed to make your own Rudolph ugly Christmas sweater:
- Plain sweater
- Brown felt (large piece that is about 1/2 yard)
- Fabric fusion glue
- Red pompoms
- Extra large google eyes (these were really difficult to glue on so you might consider white and black felt instead)
- Hot glue and glue gun
Lay the brown felt out onto your sweater. Draw a line with chalk that would outline about half of the deer head. Fold the felt in half and cut with scissors. Lay out onto the sweater with the chalk side down. Cut around the neck of your sweater as well as shown below.
Fabric fusion is the perfect adhesive to put the felt onto the sweater.
Be sure to put cardboard between the sweater front and back before gluing the felt head into place.
Add the felt head to the sweater with the fabric fusion. I then added on the pompoms and google eyes with hot glue. The eyes were EXTREMELY hard to glue to the felt. I would recommend actually using white and black felt in the place of the eyes.
Rudolph also needs some antlers. I purchased a small pair on a headband as shown below.
Cut the antlers off and then hot glue to the top of the sweater.
Now just wait for everything to dry properly before putting this ugly sweater on for a modeling show! Awesome right? You will definitely win the ugly sweater contest wearing this amazing ugly Christmas sweater.
