  • large green craft pompom
  • green pipe cleaner and scissors to cut it in half
  • red and white acrylic paint and brushes
  • hot glue gun
  • cotton ball 
  • twine or ribbon for hanging
  • Optional, ModPodge and a foam brush (if you’d like to seal the paint on the pot)

How to Make This Fun DIY Grinch Ornament for Kids

This is one of those DIY Christmas crafts where you can decide how much time to spend on it. The painting of the chimney is the longest section and we like to see a bit of texture and grit there, but if you take your time, the lines can be made perfectly straight with a bit of tape.

Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Materials

  • miniature terra cotta pot (small clay garden planter)
  • large green craft pompom
  • green pipe cleaner and scissors to cut it in half

Tools

  • red and white acrylic paint and brushes

Instructions

  1. Paint the mini clay pot red. Set aside to dry.
  2. Pull apart the cotton ball and roll into a thin tube that is long enough to go around the top (short end) of the pot.
  3. Paint white lines on the red pot to resemble a chimney. Let dry.
  4. Thread a knotted piece of twine through the hole in the bottom of the pot. Make the knot large enough that it will not slip through. You can add tape on the inside of the pot to secure.
  5. Glue the large green pompom to the top (the short end) of the painted clay pot.
  6. Glue on the green pipe cleaner (cut in half) to resemble legs. Bend the end to form feet.
