How to Make a Grinch Christmas Tree

This is my uber-talented sister-in-law’s tree and I love how she used the red, green, and white color scheme with deco mesh ribbon, a feather boa, faux candy, and lots of twirly picks that remind me of a Whoville Christmas tree. She also added some Grinch Stole Christmas ornaments and a Grinch tree topper to finish it all off.

Step One

Start by adding your ribbons, tinsel, and garlands. Before the Grinch Christmas tree gets crowded attach a variety of wired ribbons around the tree using the branches to twist them on securely.

I love the look of these black and white harlequin ribbons mixed with the black and white striped ribbon. The silver tinsel adds just the right amount

Step Two

Then add large florals to different sections of the tree. These non-traditional light green faux poinsettias are the perfect touch for a Grinch Christmas tree! You can find them HERE.

Step Three

Next, decorate with the largest Christmas ornaments and decor pieces. This tree includes whimsical faux candy Christmas tree ornaments as well as several plush lime green character ornaments like the elf legs sticking out of the tree and a large red velvet bow on the side.

A fun added touch is the full-size version of the Grinch’s dog Max on the side of the tree trying his best to help the Grinch steal Christmas!

These swirly red, green, black, and white picks play right into the “Whoville” look, don’t you think?

The Story of the Grinch Stole Christmas

The story of the Grinch is a super popular kids Christmas tale that is enjoyed by many. The Grinch is a popular Christmas character who is known for being grumpy and he’s the character who stole Christmas.

The Grinch was originally created by Dr. Seuss and has been made into several movies, including the most recent one starring Jim Carrey. It takes place in Whoville which is the fictional town that is home to the Grinch.

Whoville is known for being a very festive place. The Grinch is a grumpy character who tries to ruin Christmas for everyone.

His heart was two sizes too small and his grumpiness was off the charts. No one could stand him, not even his poor dog Max.

But despite his grumpy exterior, the Grinch had a heart of gold.

Cindy Lou who is the Grinch’s neighbor is a little girl who is kind to everyone, even the Grinch. She helps the Grinch realize that Christmas is about more than just presents and Christmas decorations.

Even though the Grinch tries to ruin Christmas by stealing all the presents, in the end, the Grinch learns the true meaning of Christmas and brings joy to all.

What are the trees called in Whoville and the Grinch Movie?

The trees in Whoville are actually called Grump Trees which are lemon cypress trees that have a wonderful lemony scent that even the Grinch himself would find appealing.

What is the Grinch Tree?

The tree made popular by the movie The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is the Grinch or Grump Tree!

You can buy Grinch Christmas Trees at Trader Joe’s or Aldi’s either one when they’re in season and before they’re gone!
