Step 1: Set Up the Christmas Tree
Begin the Grinch Christmas tree journey by selecting a small artificial tree from your local dollar store. These trees are an affordable alternative to artificial Christmas trees that are already Grinch-like.
Once your tree is set up at home, wrap it with red and white twine. Then, bend the tip of the tree, creating the iconic red and white stripes that are associated with the mischievous Grinch character.
Step 2: Add Your Decor
Decorate the tree with your red mini ornaments by placing them on the branches and filling in any visible gaps. Then, take your Grinch Christmas tree to the next level by incorporating starlight mint hard candy to the tree. Remove the plastic wrapping from the candies and attach them directly to the branches. The peppermint swirl pattern adds a sweet touch to the tree and creates the perfect Grinch element.
Step 3: Decorate the Base of the Tree
Incorporate the berry decorations to the base of the tree to add texture and an extra burst of holiday cheer. Then, to complete the tree, add a big ornament to the top of it, mimicking the actual Christmas tree from the infamous Grinch movie. We filled our large ornament topper with leftover mint hard candies to add an extra surprise for our future holiday guests.
And that’s it! You now have your very own mini Grinch Christmas tree. With just a few affordable materials, you can bring all the joyfulness of the holiday season home. Embrace the fun and festive holiday spirit and we’ll see you in our next DIY soon!
