Take a vote!
Buy a ballot box like this one from Walmart, and have your friends cast their vote for their favorite ugly sweater at the party. Have everyone chip in five dollars, and buy a few gift cards to give out as prizes.
Why stop at just making your sweater ugly? Go all out and get ugly leggings too! These from Nordstrom Rack are sure to make your look even more unattractive.
