Need it ASAP? I can ship it quick and have it to you within 3-5 days usually with priority shipping, or even overnight if you need it that soon (extra charge applies).

About

Handmade Tacky Crazy Ugly Christmas Sweaters and Hanukkah Garb!

I was invited to an "Ugly Christmas Sweater Party" in 2010 and I scavenged through my grandmother's closet for the perfect tacky top. Lo and behold I found the red sweatshirt I'm wearing in my owner profile pic, covered in crazy plaid 3D ribbons and glitter paint splattered everywhere. I knew she made it by hand and I thought, heck, if Nana can do it, so can I!

That year i made 5-10 pieces on my living room floor and sold some to friends and acquaintances. The following year I bought more supplies and made a crafting fest out of my Thanksgiving weekend. I sold about 35 sweaters, all over the world in 2011.

But 2012 was the tipping point. The business was dubbed Elves Gone Wild, I bought ElvesGoneWild.com and invested in professional supplies and storage for my garments. Thanks to a lot of sweat equity from my mom and many sleepless nights, Elves Gone Wild sold over 180 crazy christmas sweaters (Hanukkah sweaters too!) in one short holiday season!

MERRY CHRISTMAS INDEED!

I will continue to bring joy to people in the form of crazy holiday garb for as long as I can or as long as the general populace wants to buy it! Each year gets a bit wackier and that's what makes it fun!

Durability
Handmade Holiday Wear sold by Elves Gone Wild is intended for novelty purposes only. Most items are not suitable for washing machines or dryers and should be handled with care. Hot glue is the primary method used to attach items to the garments, so please be aware that excessive heat or stress may cause the glue to melt or break its hold and items could detach from the garment. Some items are very delicate in nature, so please handle with care.

Children's Wear
All children's items are made with extreme care and extra attention to use of non-toxic materials. We also take into consideration the age of the child the garment is intended for and avoid using items that could become a choking hazard if detached. You should always watch your child closely while they are wearing these novelty garments, however. If you are concerned about the safety of any of our garments, please contact us directly. We can answer questions for you or create another item that is more appropriate for your child.
