How much would you pay for Christmas fashion?

Sleigh the holidays in an ugly Christmas Sweater but don’t spend a fortune!

The ugly Christmas sweater is a holiday staple! It was once worn in jest for holiday parties and pub crawls but over the last several years, it’s become serious fashion.

These specialty sweaters can be pricey! In fact, the world’s most expensive Christmas sweater will cost you $40,000 and features diamond-encrusted silver stars, over 150 diamonds, 24-carat gold thread from France, an Italian silk lining, thousands of Swarovski crystals and a reindeer wearing a Santa hat.  

The maker is 33 year old British artist, Aidan Liban, who spent 6 months and his life’s savings during lock-down in 2020 to create the sweater.  He says he never had a Christmas jumper of his own so when he set out to create one, he said it had to be “magnificent and eye catching.”

He plans to sell it and donate some of the proceeds to the UK’s National Health Service.

BUT….. if you don’t have the cash for a sweater with crystals and 24-carat gold, just make your own using a thrift store sweater, old t-shirts and fabric scraps.  I’ve got the how-to steps to create your own Ugly Christmas sweater. It’s an easy project that you can make over the weekend for $14 or less. And that is waaaaay less than $40,000. Go ahead and spend the rest on yourself this Christmas…..
