Custom Ugly Christmas Sweaters with Santa Design

Custom Ugly Christmas Sweaters with Santa Design

September 30, 2016

Custom Ugly Christmas Sweaters with a Santa design is actually not as popular as you may think. Santa seems to have taken a back seat in recent years when it comes to the custom ugly christmas sweaters. That said, if you do decide to incorporate him into your design, that will be a great decision as Santa looks great on ugly sweaters. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Do you want a classic Santa or a cheeky Santa?

Decide on the look you are going for in relation to classic or cheeky Santa as this will determine the facial expression and pose Santa will have. When we think of classic Santa, we all think of the Coca-Cola Santa so keep that in mind-will your classic Santa live up or will it disappoint? Make sure Santa is very wholesome and happy if opting for classic. If opting for cheeky Santa for your custom ugly christmas sweater, think of poses that have been done before (flashing Santa has been done a lot), it's great to go for something different and truly original. It will be sure to get people talking!


While any color is possible for the custom ugly christmas sweater, red of course really works. A really festive and bright red makes Santa pop. It's also the color people associate as being with Santa so when they see the red there will be an instant feeling of nostalgia. Get a message added too if you like. The message/phrase/name can be knitted in to the sweater.

Santa Suit

If you don't want a Santa face on the sweater but want a Santa sweater, opt for the custom ugly christmas sweater to be made into a Santa suit. The sweater can be red with white collar and cuffs and the black belt and buttons can also be knitted in.
