DIY Baby's First Ugly Christmas Sweater #uglysweaterchallenge

I’m so excited about today’s project that I’m sharing with you. Jon and I made tacky Christmas sweaters a few years back. We figured it would be super cute to make Ryder his first ugly Christmas sweater, too! Making your baby an ugly Christmas sweater should be a new family tradition each and every year. I hope that my tutorial gives you holiday inspiration for your own ugly Christmas sweater!

So to add to the “ugliness” I hand cut a few letters that didn’t cut out for me.
