Find random items around your house to decorate the tree. I cut a string of beads to mimic lights on the tree. I also used table confetti as ornaments. Attach your items to the tree using hot glue. Be as creative as you wish!

Pick a saying that you would like on your ugly sweater. Using puffy paint, write it on the sweatshirt wherever you have space. Leave to dry for at least four hours.
