Made from lime green feathers and red Christmas ornaments, this DIY Grinch wreath is a great addition to your Grinch Christmas decor. It looks great on the wall above the fireplace or as a Grinch Christmas door decoration.
Earlier this week, you may have seen this Grinch-themed Christmas tree that I put up in my home office.
Well, now I’ve decided to make a DIY Grinch wreath to go with it.
I recently added an electric fireplace to my office (which I love!)
And I figured adding a Grinch wreath on the wall above it would be a great addition to my Christmas decorations.
This is also day 8 of our Festive Christmas Ideas blog hop.

Here’s what you need to make this DIY Grinch wreath.

- styrofoam wreath form – I used this 14″ wreath form*, but you can go a little bigger or a little smaller depending on where you want to hang it.

- 4 smaller (2.5″) red Christmas ornaments
- 2 cupcake picks*

How To Make A DIY Grinch Wreath
1 | Wrap The Wreath Form With Feathers
The first step to making our DIY Grinch wreath is to wrap the wreath form with the feather boas.
Start by using a floral pin to pin the loop at one end of the boa to the wreath.
Then wrap the boa around the wreath form until you get to the other end. It should go around about 1/3 of the wreath.
Pin the other end of the boa to the wreath form.
Use the other side of the pin to attach the next feather boa to the wreath.
Keep wrapping the feather boas around the wreath form until it is completely covered.
It usually takes 3 boas to completely cover it.
2 | Attach The Ornaments
Next we need to attach the ornaments to the wreath.
The easiest way to do this is to put the pin through the loop in the ornament and stick the pin into the wreath.
This lets you move the ornaments around easily if you don’t like the way they look.
Pin 3 larger red ornaments onto the wreath, spacing them out.
Add 4 of the smaller red ornaments, also spacing them out and changing how far they are from the center.
Finally, add the 3 green ornaments.
3 | Add the Picks
Take apart the cupcake picks by pulling the ends off the main stem.
We’ll be using each of those ends separately.
Trim the ends off the separated picks.
Then push them into the wreath.
Stick them around the outside and inside edges of the wreath in between the ornaments.
Trim the ends off the gift picks so they are 2″ to 3″ long.
Stick the end directly into the wreath form.
Add 2 more of the gift picks
Then take a look at your wreath and move around any of the ornaments that are too close together, or that you don’t like the look of.
4 | Hang The Wreath
Use another floral pin for the hook on the back of the wreath.
Figure out which side you want to be up.
Then turn the wreath around and push a floral pin most of the way into the styrofoam close to the top.
Hang the wreath on your door or wall using a small nail or a ribbon attached to a door hanger.
I love the way it looks above my fireplace.
But it would also work well as a Grinch Christmas door decoration.
