DIY Ugly Sweater T-shirts
7 November 2019
Making your very own Christmas, Hanukkah, or Holiday “Ugly Sweaters” has never been easier! All you need is iron-on vinyl, a Cricut machine, and these “Ugly Sweater” T-shirt designs I created exclusively for Cricut Design Space.

The first week of November marks the beginning of the holiday season for our family. The Halloween decor has already been boxed-up and we’ve started the process of decking our halls! Next on our list: make festive holiday apparel for the whole family!
Shown below are five “Ugly Sweaters” that I designed exclusively for Cricut Design Space. I’ve included a digital mock-up of each T-shirt design. When I make T-shirts, I always include a second design element on either the sleeve, or centered just below the neck. It really elevates the look and gives the homemade tee a store bought, designed look.

Additional T-shirt Designs
Not looking for an “Ugly Sweater” tee? Here are a few additional tees I created to help make your spirits bright! All of these T-shirt designs (including the “Ugly Sweater” tees above) are part of the Every Day is a Holiday cartridge in the Cricut Design Space image library.
Ready to get crafty? Here’s what you’ll need:
- Cricut Design Space – I set up projects for each of the “Ugly Sweater” tees in this post. All you have to do is resize the art to fit on your T-shirt, and click “Make it!” Easy peasy!
- Cricut Machine – my favorite machine is the Cricut Maker
- Iron-on vinyl
- Cricut Weeder Tool for removing the negative space from your cut vinyl
- Cricut Cutting Mats
- Crew neck T-shirts
(Please note: the art is intentionally reversed in the project files. I did this to prevent any headaches! Forgetting to flip your artwork before cutting results in wasted iron-on vinyl.)
Did you make one of these T-shirts???
