A Small Tree With a Big Message: DIY Grinch Tree
While it’s lovely to have classic holiday decor like elegant Christmas trees decked in traditional decorations and holly-adorned wreaths, I also like to inject the Christmas season with a little quirkiness and whimsy. Queue this little wonder! Not only is it adorable and brings back happy childhood memories of Dr. Seuss’s Beloved How the Grinch Stole Christmas, this miniature Grinch tree is also a table-top reminder of the spirit of the holidays. Learn how to make one, and more importantly, why you should!
In How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Dr. Suess perfectly explains what the holidays mean to me:
He puzzled and puzzed till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. Maybe Christmas, he thought…doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps…means a little bit more!
I wrote about my how a Grinch tree saved Christmas for me many years ago, and ever since I have been making many different versions to celebrate the season (like this 9-foot Grinch tree!). This year, my Grinch trees are smaller, portable, and GIVEable. So when I hear about someone who is feeling a bit blue, and could use a little holiday warmth, a table-top Grinch tree will show up at their door to put a smile on their face.
