Ugly Tie Christmas Tree Sweater

This month in our design studio, we had an Ugly Sweater design-off!  I had no clue what I was going to do at first, but got inspired after a trip to the thrift store.  I think my sweater turned out so ugly, that it's actually cute and Chloe is adorable modeling it for the photos.  Let me show you how this project came together...

What you need:
– Basic plain sweater or sweatshirt (I used a red sweater turtleneck)
– 5 men's holiday ties
– Buttons
– Scissors
I started off with a plain blank turtleneck sweater from the thrift store. I was walking around the thrift store trying to think of a way to decorate my sweater that would be different!
Then I spotted these holiday ties and right away knew that I needed to make a tree out of them.  I layed my ties down and snipped them to create a tree shape!
Next, I got our my Aleene's Fabric Fusion Permanent Fabric Tape. I knew this would be the best tape to position my ties on with...and the best thing is that it's mess-free!
I unrolled the sticky side onto each of the backs of my ties along each tie edge.

Then simply peeled away the backing and applied the ties to my sweater in the tree fashion.
Use the end of the middle tie that you snipped off to make a bow for the top of the tree.  Apply it also using the Fabric Fusion Tape.


I used a dab of the Aleene's Fabric Fusion on small buttons and randomly placed them all over my ties to serve as "ornaments".
Who knew men's neck ties could look so ugly?  Oh wait...

Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen to threaten crops, and against other creatures. This can be a problem, since a carcass which has been poisoned will kill not only the targeted animal,

but also every other animal which feeds on the carcass. Humans have also been killed by coming in contact with poisoned meat, or by eating an animal which had fed on a poisoned carcass. This tool is also used to manage several caterpillars e.g. Spodoptera litura, fruit flies, snails and slugs, crabs etc.

Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض
