Who doesn’t love How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss? It’s one of our family’s favorites so of course we had to make a Grinch Christmas ornament!
And according to the kids it’s one of the best ornaments we’ve ever made!
DIY Grinch Ornament
- Fillable Glass Balls Ornaments (affiliate link)
- broken green crayons
- Red 3D Fabric Paint (affiliate link)
- hair dryer
We decided the best part of the story was when the Grinch’s heart grew so decided to make a Grinch’s heart ornament!
To color the glass ball ornaments green we placed a couple pieces of broken green crayon inside and heated them with a hair dryer.
As the crayons began to melt they moved all around the ornament coloring it a beautiful bright green.
Once the inside of the ornament was covered we shook the remaining crayon pieces out and used the 3D fabric paint to draw a heart on the front.
Homemade ornaments that go along with Christmas books are so much fun to make and get kids excited about reading! I think the Grinch himself would approve!
This ornament is part of a two week series of kid made ornaments being shared over at Mama Miss! And all the ornaments are based on a children’s book. So much fun! Check out the other ornament crafts being shared today:
