One of the most sought after designs in the last two years is a Jesus Christmas Sweater. There are some available from various outlets but if you're looking to have your own design created and made into a custom ugly sweater, here are a few ideas:
Pick a Theme
The most obvious theme is Happy Birthday Jesus and that has been made a few times. So if opting for this theme, do something really different to stand out. Make it really fun. Another theme would be a party so it's close to the Happy Birthday Jesus Sweater without actually referring to a Birthday. Other themes may include incorporating Jesus into a Christmas theme-chilling with Santa watching Netflix before making the big deliveries etc..You can add other characters too-wise men etc
The Design Itself
Work on a few sketches before deciding on your Jesus-focus on the hair, eyes and clothes to make him stand out. Often the colors used for Jesus will be muted and toned down to make it more life like.
Due to the colours often used for Jesus, if you're opting for a Jesus Sweater, then the best approach would be to choose a very bright color like red for the sweater itself. Pinks and pale blues will blend in with Jesus and won't stand out.
