- Empty Film Container or Pill Bottle
- Thin Ribbon
- Cotton Balls
- 1 1/2- or 2-inch Pom-pom
- Green Chenille Stem
- Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Paint Brush
Paint small rectangles onto the film container or pill bottle so they look like bricks. You can also just paint the film container or pill bottle a solid color. Let the paint dry completely.
Cut an 8- to 10-inch piece from the thin ribbon. Fold it in half to form the hanger for the ornament. Glue both ends onto the top, inside edge of the film container or pill bottle.
Glue the cotton balls around the top edge of the film container. Glue the green pom-pom so it is half-in and half-out of the film container. This will be the Grinch's bottom stuck in the chimney.
Cut two 3-inch pieces from the green chenille stem. Glue them to the green pom-pom to look like the Grinch's legs. Bend the bottom part of the leg down to form the feet.
Glue on a ribbon loop and let the glue dry. Hang your ornament on the tree
