You may have already seen my Grinch-themed Christmas tree that I put up in my home office, my DIY Grinch garland or these printable Grinch silhouette pictures I created.

Well, now I’ve decided to make a DIY Grinch wreath to go with them.

I recently added an electric fireplace to my office (which I love!)

And I figured adding a wreath on the wall above it would be the next addition to my Grinch Christmas decorations.

And it’s so easy that it only takes about 10 minutes to make!

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.

Take apart the cupcake picks by pulling the ends off the main stem.

We’ll be using each of those ends separately.

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.
