How do you make ugly sweaters light up?

It is easy to make your ugly sweater light up – purchase a small set of lights with a battery-operated power pack. Often these light packs come with 20 lights making them the perfect length to attach to an ugly Christmas sweater.

Consider attaching with hot glue or weaving in and out of the weave in the sweater. They could also be attached with a heavy-duty thread.

  1. Hi Susan,

    i just found your site and am so much interested in the “Santa Climbing The Tree Ugly Sweater”
    Would you be able to provide tips and ideas on how I can have this done as I really wanna do that this year. I have two weekends before the competition at work


  2. These are fantastic! I love the idea of making your own because I hate the idea of spending very much money on something I’ll wear once a year!

  3. Haha! This was a lot of fun to read! Very creative! We never do the whole ugly sweater thing in our family. Folks are too concerned with trying to look “cute” Lol.
