Turn that ugly Christmas sweater into 'swants'

Posted: Updated:

Still stumped about what to give the one you love for Christmas? How about getting creative? The craftiest among us have something up their sleeves this year.

Much like the fruitcake, the dreaded Christmas sweater has gotten a bad rap. Even Hollywood has maligned the peppy pullover.

Now there is new way to re-purpose that "catchy" cardigan. All you need is a scissors and a few stitches. Voila, you've turned that sweater into a snazzy pair of pants slacks with Santa-tude. In no time at all, a Christmas sweater becomes a new pair of cheery pants: a sweater plus pants or "swants," which can bend, stretch and delight.

Stephen West even created a tutorial teaching us all how to transform those woolly sweaters into sassy pants.

Merry Christmas! Or should I say Merry Swantsmas.
