Fans of the original Dr. Seuss holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas: create the best Grinch Christmas tree with these ornaments and decorations.

I used a felted Grinch ornament (similar) with red blown glass heart ornaments (similar) on my own mini Grinch Christmas tree (pictured above) but I have curated lots more ideas for you to explore and shop below that are inspired by the beloved Dr. Seuss character.


How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of the most beloved Dr. Seuss children’s books. A Christmas short story for all ages, it features a furry green creature in the festive, charming town of Whoville who does NOT like Christmas. So, he decides to steal it from the townspeople. But, when they still remain joyful he has a change of heart.

It was followed by the classic cartoon with the memorable song, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch,” and later by the 2000 Jim Carrey movie adaptation. They are all yearly holiday staples!

Top Picks for a Grinch Christmas Tree

First, below are my top picks for exactly how I (personally) envision the perfect Grinch tree. (But, let your own creativity take you in any direction you wish with this idea for a Christmas theme for decorations!)

When I think of the Grinch, I think of the colors cherry red, lime green, and white, fur, a Santa suit, and a dash of whimsy.

I personally like to keep things simple and cohesive. I like:

How to Create the Best Grinch Christmas Tree

Below are even more details you can mix and match to create the best Grinch Christmas tree for your home:

  • Add red, green and/or white lights in the spirit of the red, green, and white colors featured throughout the famous book about Christmas.
  • Next, add Grinch-inspired garland and/or ribbon to give your Grinch Christmas tree a cohesive look. I recommend continuing the color theme of cherry red, lime green, and/or white, and keeping any prints whimsical and festive, like the classic children’s book and adaptation.
  • Decorate with Grinch-inspired ornaments. Whether actual Grinch ornaments or inspired Grinch ornaments, keep them in the classic Grinch color scheme of bright red, lime green, and white.
  • Top your Grinch Christmas tree with an actual Grinch tree topper.
  • Finish the bottom of your Grinch Christmas tree with a themed tree skirt.
