Have some fun with the ugly Christmas sweater trend and make a DIY Ugly Christmas Ornament this year. These simple Christmas ornaments will add a fun vibe to your family's tree this December. Collect your favorite miniature ugly Christmas sweater embellishments and make a set of these fun ornaments with mix and match ideas that you adore. These easy homemade Christmas ornaments are easy enough to make over and over again, so if you're headed to a white elephant party this year, here's the perfect gift idea!


  • Green and red felt
  • Craft wire
  • White embroidery floss
  • Embellishments: mini bells, mini wreaths, and mini faux Christmas lights
  • Tools: sewing needle, scissors, instant grab glue, wire snips, and round nose pliers
  • Shirt pattern


  1. Print the pattern and cut it out. Stack two pieces of same color felt and use the pattern to cut out two shirts.

  2. To make the coat hanger, cut a 12-inch piece of wire. Place your shirt pattern on the work surface and bend the wire to create the first corner of the hanger. Lay it onto the pattern to help you gauge the size. Leave enough space around the collar for stitching at the end.

  3. Bend the other side, the wires should intersect, creating a triangle.

  4. Twist the wire tow or three times at the intersection.

  5. Snip off one end of the wire.
  6. Bend the other end of the wire into the hanger top.

  7. Snip off the excess wire.

  8. Use glue to attach the hanger to one of the felt shirts. Add more glue over the top of the hanger and press the second shirt on top, lining up all the edges.

  9. Use glue and embellishments to decorate your sweater.

  10. Stitch around the entire sweater to finish it off. You can use a blanket stitch or a hemming stitch, whichever you prefer. When finished, add a little glue to the end stitch(es) to secure them.

Every year, whether you want it or not someone gets you an ugly Christmas sweater. If you don't get one this year, this mini ugly sweater crafts is a wonderful substitute. You can even hang these on your Christmas tree. They're very simple to make and with your stash of craft supplies, you can embellish your sweater with anything.

These ugly sweater ornaments are so adorable. I would make several in different colors and hang them all over my Christmas tree.

This is adorable! It's so easy to make when you use the printable pattern. Love it!
