Mr. Max’s favorite toy is The Grinch. My mother purchased one for Hubby a few years ago. Hubby is the world’s WORST gift-getter. Worst. Ever. Nothing purchased for him is right (ironically, my mother (who is also a poor gift-getter) has done better for him than just about anyone else). He used to be highly entertaining – he’d crab about a gift, and we would all laugh (at him), but after a while the shtick got old. So, one Christmas my mother bought hubby a Grinch plush toy. Hubby, in turn, gave it to Mr. Max.

Mr. Max played with that thing a lot. When traveling down to Florida, we would pack up Max’s favorite toys – including the Grinch – and bed(s) and then start driving.

One year on the drive down I looked at Hubby and said, “What is that SMELL!?!?”

It turns out it was the Grinch. Max’s goob is not exactly fragrant, and The Grinch ended up malodorous. Truly. It smelled disgusting and polluted the car.

We bagged up Mr. Grinch for the rest of the drive down to Florida, and then Hubby went on a hunt for a new Grinch once we arrived down south. Hubby paid-up for a new one on fleabay, and Mr. Max had two Grinchs for a while! Last year when we drove down to Florida, the original Grinch hit the trash can on our way out of town.

The “new” Grinch now stinks, and Hubby is gonna have to find one – again.

Needless to say, The Grinch is a well-known icon in our household.

So, when my niece suggested “we” (the royal we) make a Grinch wreath, I was all for it! My niece LOVES Dr. Seuss (she owns some first editions) and she is passing along that love to her son.

A few notes on this wreath:

• This “The Grinch” wreath is far less fussy than many of the others out there. That was by choice. This wreath represents his heart growing three sizes (hence the bursting pipe cleaners) when he comes to fully accept the meaning of Christmas. Hubby saw the tulle color on the wreath (with nothing else on it), and immediately said, “A Grinch wreath!” It was easily recognized even without the heart and hat!

• Dr. Suess is well known for heavy black lines. You will note that on the hat. Do not skip that step.

• Tulle is significantly more difficult to work with than material. Keep that in mind.

• You want your wreath nice and full. If you skimp, you cannot hide it. Make sure your matted tulle is nice and full!

• Cut two pipe cleaners in half.
• Insert 2 halves at each corner of the hat, hot glue in place (these will attach your hat to the wreath, so make sure they are long enough to do that while being secure inside the hat).
• Insert a small amount of fiberfill into the hat.
• Dab some hot glue on the bottom so the fiberfill will not come out (you can do the whole line if you like).
• Attach the hat to the wreath. This is a left facing hat so it will go on the left side of the wreath. If you need your hat to face right, make sure you have turned it right after cutting.

• Display!
• Note that I did not bother with a hanger. You definitely could if you wanted one. This is fairly light so it could be as simple as a pipe cleaner twisted on the back of the wreath and then twisted tight to form a hanger.
