Decorating a Grinch Christmas tree is a whimsical and fun holiday project that can bring a touch of Dr. Seuss-inspired magic to your home. The movie and book, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” has been a favorite for many years. What could be a grump tree can be turned into a festive tree full of Christmas cheer!
I saw these Grinch trees at the Festival of Trees in the SLC area. It’s a great fundraiser to support children who are hospitalized. There are many Grinch Christmas tree ideas for you to enjoy and maybe take a few ideas for your own Grinch tree!
Grinch Christmas Tree Decoration
How to create this Mr Grinch tree? Do you have an artificial Christmas tree? It is easier to decorate than a real one. But if a real tree is your tradition then it is important to you! We don’t want to stop a good thing.
Start by heading to your nearest craft store (Hobby Lobby or Michaels) to gather an assortment of festive Christmas tree decorations, including ornaments and lights. To give your tree that Grinchy flair, don’t forget the iconic Grinch hand and a Grinch tree topper. As you adorn your tree, you can incorporate miniature Cindy Lou Who figurines and, of course, the mischievous Mr. Grinch himself. A great addition to any tree is handmade pieces. Do you enjoy crafting? This would be the perfect tree to make Dr Seuss ornaments!
HOW TO DECORATE A Grinchmas Tree
Add themed ornaments to your tree, such as Grinch faces, Grinch hands, and Grinch hearts. You can find these at many stores that sell Christmas decorations, or you can make your own using craft supplies. Large ornaments are a must on a larger tree. They help to balance out the sizing. Smaller ornaments also work as fillers on a large tree or a small tree. Again it’s about balance.
Hang garlands and tinsel on your tree. These can be purchased or made using green and red paper or ribbon.
Add a themed tree topper, such as a Grinch hat or a Grinch holding a candy cane. I love how this one below has a bend like the Whoville Mountain Grinch lives on.
