The Most Hilarious Christmas Art Fails
Whether it’s misspelled merchandise or trees that look like unpleasant emojis...
Art Stuff 19 Dec 2018

While trendsetters are busy taking a chic Scandinavian approach to their own minimal Christmas time – far from the touch of tacky – we can’t help but notice bad design during the holidays. Whether it’s misspelled merchandise or trees that look like unpleasant emojis, here are some of the most hilarious Christmas art fails worth noting as what not to do. What do you think? Tell us your favorite Christmas fail on Twitter @theartgorgeous.
 

The spooky ‘believe’ mug’

What was this designer thinking? It looks like it belongs in a crime scene (apparently it’s available at Kirklands).

Santa’s hands all over your tight pants

Well, at least some fashion designers have a sense of humor, note the placement of Santa’s hand on the front.

The ugly Christmas sweater with a hidden joke

This mom didn’t realize the design blip on this sweater she bought for her son. She writes: “Accidentally sent my son to school with his newly bought ugly Christmas sweater. Didn’t realize what Santa was doing until his kindergarten teacher pointed it out when I picked him up after school.”

Poop emoji Christmas tree

To imagine this lit-up poopy tree was in a shopping mall somewhere in the middle of Bucharest is beyond me.

The butt plug Christmas tree

To imagine this was in the center of a city square in Paris is just comical. It was shortly taken down after it was erected in 2014.

Underpants Christmas lights

These lights hang like white underwear on a clothesline, except they’re in the middle of a street.

That’s not a tree

This Reese’s peanut butter Christmas tree looks more like a Moomin character or just a chocolate blob. Chocolate always wins, but still, the tree cookie cutter could come in handy here.
