Gorgeous Grinch Fur Ornament

Supplies needed:
Green feather boa
Cardboard
Round drinking glass
Pencil
Scissors
Ribbon
Craft glue

We were able to find the green boa and ribbon used in the sample picture at our local Dollar Tree store.

Directions:
1. Begin by tracing a circle on a piece of cardboard. Use the drinking glass as your stencil. Cut the circle out.
2. You now want to cut a small circle out of your larger circle, leaving you a loop. You can do this by tracing a smaller glass on the inside of the circle, however we just freehanded one. Cut it out.
3. You now have what looks like a cardboard wreath form. Take the green boa and begin wrapping round the form.
4. Wrap until there is no boa remaining and your form is completely covered. Use your craft glue to secure the end of the boa to the board.
5. Cut a length of ribbon and run it through the now green and fluffy wreath. Tie it at the top into a bow.

That’s it! Your gorgeous Grinch fur ornament is all ready to be hung. So find a spot, nice and central on your tree so everyone can see your love for the Grinch!

grinch-kozies

This holiday season, wouldn’t it be fun for even your drinking glasses to show some Grinch pizzazz? These Grinch Glass Cozies are so easy to make, and don’t require you sewing single stitch. Plus, they will keep your hands warm while you sip. If you want your glasses to have some Grinchy goodness to them, take a look below at how to make your own Grinch glass cozies.

Grinch Glass Cozies

Supplies needed:
Mason jars or simple drinking glasses
Scissors
Hot glue, glue gun
Old green sweater

A thrift store is the perfect place to find the materials you need for this project. Our local thrift store had some simple clear glasses we used for this project as well as an old green sweater perfect for snipping.

Directions:
1. Begin by snipping off the sleeves of your sweater.
2. Starting at the wrist of the sweater, insert your glass to get an idea of how much sleeve you will need to cut in order for the fabric to fit.
3. Now, cut the sleeve to fit the glass.
4. Slide the sleeve onto the glass. Make sure the hemmed edge is at the top of the glass. If there is not a clean hem, just roll the sleeve down once or twice to make one.
5. Your rough edge will be at the bottom of the glass. Pull it so it folds under the glass. Continue pulling the fabric towards the center of the bottom of the glass.
6. Apply a generous dab of hot glue to the center of the glass. Continue pulling the fabric towards the center, pressing it to the glue. The fabric will adhere to it and create a nice and clean finish at the bottom of the glass.

That’s all there is to making your own Grinch Glass Cozies. They are perfect for sipping egg nog or any other holiday beverage you want to enjoy!
