DIY tacky holiday sweater

I don't own any tacky Christmas sweaters, so conjuring one up for a party this past holiday season proved to be tricky. I wanted to have more fun with it than go to a thrift store, so my next best bet was, of course, DIYing one.

I got this idea off of Pintrest, but made it even simpler by just using leftover acrylic paint from another project.

Sweater ($6 from Walmart)
Acrylic paint (~$1)
Lettering stencils
Sponge brush

+ Any other tacky things you want to add on (lace, frills, pom poms, etc.) + fabric glue

I ended up liking so much how this turned out, that I kinda have incorporated it into my everyday wardrobe... just not my public wardrobe!

Starting materials

It's easier to paint on the letters crooked instead of worrying about perfect lines
