This DIY Grinch garland is a fun and festive addition to your Christmas decor that only takes a few minutes to put together.

6 | Red, white and green Christmas trees

If making a garland sounds like too much work, then putting some red, white and green mini Christmas trees on your mantel may be just the thing.

You get the Christmas-y Grinch look and it only takes a couple of minutes to set up.

Just try to get a few different heights to make them look more natural.

You can find similar trees to the ones I used here:

8 | DIY Grinch wreath

If you don’t have a TV above your fireplace, then a wreath is a great way to add some festive spirit to the space.

This DIY Grinch wreath only takes about 15 minutes to make but looks very Christmas-y hanging above the fireplace. (It also works on the front door if it is covered).

9 | Red and white stockings

Of course, if you’re going to be putting up a Grinch tree and decorating the mantel, then you’ll probably want some matching stockings to hang above the fireplace.

I hung up some red and white ones. They aren’t specific to the Grinch but the pom poms have the same vibe and they go with the color scheme.

You can find these and other similar options that aren’t very expensive on Amazon:

11 | Grinch cushion covers

If you’re looking to integrate How the Grinch Stole Christmas into your home decor, then you’re in luck.

There are all kinds of cushions and cushion covers that are inexpensive and will add a festive feel to your house.

If you’re buying them online, pay attention to the descriptions.

Some of products will include the pillow and some will only be the covers.

If it’s the latter, you’ll need to provide the cushion inserts. But the covers are usually less expensive. So they will save you money over time, since you can re-use the inserts with different covers for all the seasons.

Here are some of my favorites:

Christmas Pillow Covers 18x18 Merry Christmas Grinch Christmas Pillows Grinch Decor Farmhouse Christmas Throw Pillow Covers Set of 4 Christmas Decorations for Home
Christmas Decor Green Merry Christmas Cushion Covers Throw Pillow Cover Tartan Cover Case for Couch Sofa Home Decoration Cotton 20 X 12 Inches
Sambosk Grinch Christmas Pillow Covers 18x18 Set of 4 Xmas Decor Merry Grinchmas Stink Stank Stunk Resting Grinch Face Outdoor Winter Decorative Throw Pillow Cushion Cases for Home Couch SK035-18

12 | Grinch pictures

To really get into the festive spirit, hang some Grinch-inspired pictures for the holidays.

I made these easy printable silhouette pictures of Cindy Lou Who, Max the dog, the Grinch and a Whoville Christmas tree.

Stapling up some red and white striped wrapping paper behind them really made them stand out.

But you can also buy inexpensive prints and frame them however you want.

13 | Table Linens

Grinch-inspired decor is also available for your holiday table.

You can get runners and tablecloths that are obviously related to the Dr. Seuss story with the Grinch face on them. Or that say “Merry Grinchmas”.

Or go for a subtler approach by choosing table linens in lime green, red and white that match the color scheme, without actually having the Grinch on them.

Here are some options:

Rvsticty Linen Grinch Table Runner Merry Grinchmas Tablecloth Winter New Year Xmas Christmas Decorations and Supplies for Home Kitchen Table-13×72''
Merry Grinchmas Table Runner Christmas Xmas Buffalo Plaid Check Winter Holiday Party Decoration Fireplace Kitchen Dinning Home Decor (Green, 13" x 72")

2 Pieces Red and White Striped Tablecloth Plastic Stripe Table Cover Carnival Circus Tablecloths Waterproof Rectangle Tablecloth for Holiday Party Picnic Decoration, 54" x 107"

14 | Tea Towels

Why stop in the dining room when you can have the Grinch in your kitchen?

Like table linens, you can find Grinch-specific tea towels or just replicate the color scheme.

These are some of my favorites:

HOMSHIAM Christmas Kitchen Towels 2 Pieces Christmas Dish Towels Hand Towels Housewarming Gifts for New Home, Christmas Farmhouse Decor for Kitchen/Bedroom/Bathroom(17.7 x 27.5 Inch)
T-Fal Textiles 60948 2-Pack Solid & Check Parquet Design 100-Percent Cotton Kitchen Dish Towel, Red, Solid/Check-2 Pack

15 | Grinch kitchen mat

Adding a mat on the floor in front of the sink is another easy way to add some Grinch decorations to your home.

I actually used one that is intended to be a front door mat.

It has a rubber back so it won’t slide and it’s really easy to clean. So you don’t have to worry about spills.

They are available in lots of different Grinch designs so you can choose the one you like. Here are some options:

Grinch Door Mat Christmas Decoration Entrance Doormat Non-Slip Floor Mat Absorb Water Indoor Rugs Bath Kitchen Garden Entryway Mats Holiday Decor for Outdoor 30 * 17 inch

16 | Grinch Outdoor Decorations

The Grinch decor doesn’t have to stop inside the house. There are all kinds of options for your front yard, too!

The Grinch stealing lights is always a popular option. I combined him with green string lights on the bushes and red flood lights.

But there are lots of other ways to add the Grinch to your outdoor display.

      Hi Lauren…it’s actually wrapping paper that I bought at Target. Not sure if they still have it, but I think you could find something similar on Amazon.
