If you are a fan of the Grinch character of the classic book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss, you can make a DIY wreath in that theme for the holidays. It can be created easily by upcycling material like cardboard, mesh, foam tubing, flannel and other articles lying around the house. You would be amazed at how the results turn out. The grumpy character has been depicted in various forms on the wreaths. While most of them have depicted his face, others have his legs sticking out. His heart has also been showcased in the green wreaths.
The supplies for this project are a wire wreath form, green deco mesh, a piece of wood (for painting the Grinch’s face), glass ornaments, ribbons, and glue. You need to start by gathering the deco mesh and gluing it to the wreath.
For this wreath, pipe cleaners are cut in thirds and wrapped around the inner edge of a square wreath ring. Then it is all covered up with green deco mesh. The Grinch’s legs and shoes are made with stuffed flannel fabric.
This burlap wreath looks beautiful on the front door of your house for Christmas. You can use a plain white or a red polka-dotted ribbon for decoration. You can accessorize it by placing a Santa hat sloppily on its side.
You can enhance the beauty of this wreath by attaching string lights under the green tulle. It gives the wreath a dramatic effect at night.
Start this DIY by taking a few pipe cleaners and tying them to the inside of the wreath form. Then the green deco mesh is folded in layers, cut and attached to the wire wreath for the face. The trim on the Grinch’s head is made by tying white deco mesh. The red deco mesh is twisted and attached to the top of the head with the pipe cleaners.
For this DIY wreath, you need to spray paint a Styrofoam ring and cover it with a boa. Twist pipe cleaners and attach them to the wreath to make it look “Grinchy”. You can add Christmas ornaments to complete the wreath.
This project requires a 14-inch wreath form, lime green mesh and an Exacto knife. You need to cut out the Grinch eyes out of paper and glue them onto the wreath.
It would be pretty interesting once you start off with any of the tutorials of your choice. You can hang the wreaths on the wall or the front door. You would have a great time with your loved ones making these wreaths for Christmas.
