Tacky Christmas Sweaters: Still All The Rage.

Ahoy.sign_off_pic  Last we talked Tacky Christmas Sweaters, we explored how to improve an ordinary plain sweater with ever-enhancing LED lights.  Easy as pie.  Since then, Tacky Christmas Sweaters have taken off like a rocket ship.  There’s an insane amount of funny sweater designs out there, guys!  So it’s no longer a challenge to find something unique, and ya don’t have to break the bank to win that “Ugly” Sweater Contest.

As FBL gears up for the annual company Christmas party, many of us are preparing our own Tacky Christmas Sweaters for a fierce competition.  We’re encouraging our team to GET WACKY with it, add lights & flare, there is really no other way!  OH there will be prizes & pictures!  Stay tuned for that magic…  In the meantime, check out this ol’ thrift store trophy I spruced up with Battery Powered Wire String Lights & old tree decorations.  BEHOLD the power of a glue gun and doo-dads!  Winner winner chicken dinner!  Someone’s going to feel very accomplished upon receiving this, lemme tell ya…

Here’s last year’s big winner, Vivacious Vero!  How’s that for team spirit?  She’s not only an essential part of our hard-workin’ custom print department, but she is a creative mastermind – just look at her use of our  Christmas Tree Wand! Love the slow color change Acrylic Snowflake Ornaments as well.  Above & beyond, this one.

When I’m party plannin’, it’s only right that I opt out of the contest.  But I can still get into it!  Check this light up tinsel garland boa I wove together in under 5 minutes, thanks to our LED String Lights – same product used on the trophy.  I kept the battery house in my pocket, simple. In addition to FBL Lights, I am also a huge fan of cats with laserbeam eyes.

This Christmas skirt’s got our slow color change Mini Gift Ornaments inside & around the layers of tulle.  Nooooo way!  YES way.  Those Glowing Gift Ornaments come in a larger size too FYI.  Now if that’s not thinking outside the box, then I don’t know what is.  Pun intended.

***UPDATE*** since our last company Christmas party:  the big winner of our DIY Ugly Sweater Contest is FBL customer service rep & marketing extraordinaire ANDREW DODSON! (son) ((son)) (((dramatic echo)))  Congratulations, mate.  It is an honor to work with such a creative dude and good person.  D-Trump, eat your heart out – get a load of that sweater…
