ugly sweater party: the awards

So, for the 3rd year now we are throwing an ugly sweater party
I wanted to do something special for the awards

If you rewind,
I have been on a trophy kick lately 

If you remember these guys from halloween found here

I have also been working on roller derby end of year awards, which I can't share yet (soon though)

But, back to the point.

Ugly sweater party awards
We give an award for best sweater and best outfit 

So I have been looking on pinterest for some inspiration
I found this pin

From this website

So, this is what I came up with ..

The main body is an upside down dollar store wine glass that is glued on top of a wood piece from Michael's that I covered in washi tape

 In side the globe created from the wine glass is a small ornament glued on the wood with a tag for the award type

The sweater/hat combo was purchased from Peir one (a little expensive, $9), the neck was made from a cork and head from another small ornament 

What do you think of my ugly sweater party award for only $10?

This post is linking up this week here



  1. Ha! That is cute! Everytime I read about someone having an ugly sweater party I think to myself how badly I want to attend one! Alas though living in Australia we're in the middle of summer ;) Mighten't be such a good idea right?

  5. For my trophies I'm going to find some old thrift store trophies (ala soccer players or dancers) and make felt sweaters for them, and then with the award written super fancy on lined paper and scotch taped over the original words to make it extra cheesy.


Thanks for leaving me some love.
