How do you make a Grinch Christmas Wreath?
This is very simple to make. You’ll love it!
Start by cutting off one of the ends of the scarf,. This scarf I found at Dollar Tree is tubular and had a big white pompom on either end. Try to find that one.
If you’re scarf is tubular, like the one at the Dollar tree, slide the scarf over the candy cane wreath form. Trim off the excess fabric.
If your scarf is open and not tubular, you’ll fold the fabric over the back of the candy cane wreath form and hot glue along the entire length.
Once the scarf is over the wreath form, fold over each end, over the excess fabric, and hot glue in place. Be careful since this is fabric, sometimes the hot glue can seep through.
Take the piece of green faux fur and flip it to the wrong side. Using a pencil or fine tip Sharpie, trace your hand on the fabric and make the fingers have more of a point (like the Grinch).
Using the razor blade or x-acto knife and trace the hand shape as you score the faux fur so you are only cutting the backing. This helps make it very furry. This can take a few swipes across the fabric.
Flip the faux fur back over and curl each finger a little lengthwise, so it looks like fingers.
Hot glue to the scarf at the curve end of the wreath and press the faux fur on the edge securely.
Cut the white band section of the Santa Ha. We are going to make it look like the trim of a jacket.
Then take that band and hot glue around the end of the candy can wreath form over the green faux fur. Make sure you hot glue it, so no raw edges are showing.
Lastly hot glue two of the furry fingers together, holding the string from the ornament in the middle to secure it in place!
Now it’s time to hand up your wreath!
