When it comes to the holidays, we go big, and by big – I mean, we always come up with fun Christmas crafts and Christmas decorations we can make on a budget.

Years ago I made this Grinch heart wreath but I decided it was time to revamp that idea and make something for our front door or that could be given as Christmas gifts. Honestly, I think I nailed it!

So, if you’re looking for a DIY Grinch Wreath you can make for just a few dollars, you’ve come to the right place.

How to Make A Dollar Tree Grinch Wreath

If you can run to your local Dollar Tree and pick up a few supplies, you can make this Grinch-themed decoration.

It takes just a few supplies from the dollar store and a few modifications to make this DIY Christmas decor you can enjoy all season long.

My total cost was $6.25 + tax (I already had the glue gun, Sharpie, scissors, etc. at home).

Step-by-step guide on how to make a Grinch wreath using Dollar Tree supplies.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • Candy Cane Wreath Form Dollar Tree
  • Red Velvet Scarf Dollar Tree
  • Bright Green Faux Fur Dollar Tree
  • Large Red ornament Dollar Tree
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Permanent marker or pen
  • Santa Hat to use the white section to make the Santa arm
  • X-acto knife or razor blade
  • Scissors


  • Start by cutting off one of the ends of the scarf (where the pom pom ball is)
  • Slide the scarf over the candy cane wreath form. Trim off the excess fabric.
  • On both ends, fold over the excess fabric and hot glue in place. Watch your fingers as sometimes the hot glue can seep through.
  • Flip over the faux fur and trace your hand on it making the fingers have more of a point. I used a thin Sharpie but a pen would work also.
  • Using the razor blade or X-acto knife, score the faux fur so you are only cutting the backing. This can take a few swipes across the fabric. Then flip over the fabric and push the faux fur together to make it look like fingers.
  • Add some hot glue to the end of the wreath and press the faux fur on top.
  • Cut the bottom section of the Santa hat to make the end of the arm look like a jacket. I just eyeballed the length but measuring it is about 7 inches. Then hot glue around the end of the candy can wreath form over the green faux fur.
  • Hot glue two of the fingers together with the string from the ornament in the middle to secure it in place!
  • Now you're done and can enjoy your Grinch Wreath made from Dollar Tree supplies!


If you can't find the green faux fur at your local Dollar Tree, you can also use a bright green boa from the party section.
