Whether you like it or not, Christmas jumpers are vital part of most British wardrobes. As we are slowly approaching the season of ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ parties, you might consider making one yourself. You will need only basic sewing skills, a couple of hours of your time and a few spare quid. You will not only have an extravagant piece of festive clothing, but also have a chance to grab a special Christmas voucher from Thistle!


Here are 4 easy steps for creating your own Christmas Jumper Masterpiece without ruining your budget:

1. Think about your theme. Do you want a Santa, reindeer or snowflakes jumper. The more bizzare you go, the better. Remember that Christmas jumpers should be funny and tacky! Selecting a theme, will make your jumper and embellishments hunt much easier.

2. Pick your jumper. Best place to find a manky old fashioned, over-sized jumper is a local charity shop, this way you won’t spend a fortune and will also support a good cause. If you can, try to pick a festive colour, like red or green.

3. Now you will need some festive embellishments and decorations, that could be easily fitted to your jumper. If you don’t have any at home, try to get some felt Christmas stockings from the pound shop ( with little Santas, Reindeers, Snowmen etc. stitched on)

4. Stitch or glue your decorations on to the jumper and don’t worry, it can and should look a little messy!

 There you go. It’s done!
