How To Create A Grinch Inspired Gift For Friends, Neighbors or Family
Hi and welcome back to day 2 of our 12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop. Today we are sharing our favorite holiday movie and creating a craft or recipe to go along with it. I love the original Grinch movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas. We watch it every year! The craft I decided to share is Grinch wine glasses filled with candy and a Grinch inspired candy cane for a fun Grinch Inspired Gift.
Welcome to the third annual 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

DIY Grinch Inspired Gift
I purchased these awesome wine glasses and a fun “milk bottle” vase at the Dollar Store. I just love that they were $1 each!
Materials Needed For Grinch Inspired Gifts
A picture of the Grinch face – You can find this on Pinterest or Google
Wash and dry the glasses. Use the black sharpie marker and the inspiration drawing to create the face of the Grinch on the glasses. You can draw it free hand or you can print the face to the scale of the glass and tape it inside the glass and “trace” the design. I used the free hand method and here are the stages.
I first drew the eyebrows.
Then the eyes.
Next, the nose.
And finally the mouth.
All that is left is to color the eyes yellow.
Bake the glasses. To do this place them onto a baking sheet in a cold oven. Set the oven to 250 degrees. Bake them for two hours then let the oven cool completely before taking them out.
Place a cellophane bag into the glass and fill it with candy. These candy canes that look very “Who-ville-ish” were perfect and I placed them right in the center.
I have to say that the candy takes away the Grinch face a little bit but it is still super cute and when the candy is gone that face will be back.
What do you think? I love the Grinch Inspired Gift and I still love the movie after all of these years.
