Moore told BuzzFeed News this was her first year at a new company so when she heard about the firm’s festive ‘ugly sweater’ contest, she wanted to go all out to impress her co-workers and, of course, win. She did a pretty stellar job.
She was inspired to make her tree-like jumper after seeing a similar idea on Pinterest.
“It took about four hours to make. I was up until midnight and my boyfriend was super annoyed that I wasn’t responding to his texts or calls but I was in my zone,” Moore said. “I haven’t had the opportunity to be creative since college to be honest, so I was pretty excited.”
Despite her incredible effort, Moore came second in the contest. She sent a joke tweet about her disappointment and it quickly went viral. It gained over 66,400 likes and 25,000 retweets.
