Okay, so each year since David and I have been RDs (except for our first year) we have hosted an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. So. Much. Fun. We always have a contest for the ugliest sweater, but we-as the Resident Directors never participate...in the voting that is. We usually dress in ugly Christmas sweaters...David is so funny and such a great sport for the girls in our dorm.
This year (well, December 2013), I decided I was going to make us cute shirts with our pictures on them...Thanks Pinterest for the idea!
- Felt for elf clothing
- Printable iron-on (one sheet per elf)
- Needle and Thread
- Extra embellishments: Pom Pom Ball for top of hat, fabric paint, bells, etc.
Step 1: Print face photo onto a printable iron-on.
Step 2: Cut out face and iron it onto a shirt.
Step 3: Cut clothing for the elves...I used two felt tree skirts.
Step 4: Sew the elf clothing in place on the shirt.
