The kiddo and I look forward to creating our festive matching outfits every year and are always on the lookout for fancy Christmas gear regardless of the season – we scored the Santa-themed vests that became our tacky holiday dresses for $0.10 each at a garage sale this past summer!
Have a sift through your stash and a peek at the back of your closet then revisit my Christmas gear tutes to create some Tacky DIY Holiday Wear for #ThriftyThursday!
Head on over to my first upcycled holiday wear project from 2014 – three scrapbusting, totally unique (not so ugly) Christmas sweaters!
Visit my adorable refashioned Christmas blouses and discover how to whip up an easy holiday headband and Santa beard too!

Complete your holiday outfit with a pair of instant bauble earrings!
on a side note: does anyone else find it disturbing that so many people think it’s ok to buy a cheap fast fashion or thrift shop sweater, glue dollar store decorations to it and then toss it out when their ugly sweater parties are over? Am I a weirdo because I keep each year’s festive (& washable) makes and wear them again and again?! Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Snag some thrifty inspiration (+ join up & share your love of second hand) over on my Gone Thrifting facebook group!
