Tile Grinch Ornament
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we adore the Grinch Movie and all things stink stank stunk. He’s just grumpy, mean and oh so green, I can’t stand it. I never get enough. Particularly, I never get enough of DIY Grinch ornaments. I had to come up with a new one to add to my collection this year, so of course, I grabbed some crafting supplies and got to work.
In only a few minutes, I had a fantastic and fun new tile Grinch ornament to hang on the tree – and a second one to send to a friend. If you’re ready to make a Grinch tile ornament in a flash, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Grinch TIle Ornament
- Click here to get the free Grinch face features cut file set. This file is perfect for layering, just note, when you’re layering heat transfer vinyl, let the vinyl cool before putting the next layer on and pressing it. This will prevent the vinyl from puckering. Learned that lesson the hard way.
- You can use any tile, really, but that particular Grinch face shape? That’s specific to the arabesque tiles. I didn’t want to buy a whole sheet of that tile, though, because I honestly just wanted an ornament, not a backsplash. So I grabbed a sample set of two tiles here. One of mine arrived chipped, but was able to superglue it back together and still had a second Grinch tile ornament to gift to a friend!
- If you’d like to give your Grinch face ornament a real professional-looking sheen, be sure to hit it with a coat of craft sealant with a nice gloss. I like the way this particular craft adhesive dries nice and shiny very quickly.
How Do I Make this Tile Grinch Ornament?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 Arabesque Tile
- Green Acrylic Paint
- Craft Sealant
- Black Heat Transfer Vinyl
- White Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Dark Green Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Green 1/4-inch Ribbon
- Cricut Easy Press Mini
- Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Joy
- Paint the solid side of your tile with the green acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.
- While the paint is drying, prepare your vinyl pieces by downloading the Grinch head cut file set, then uploading it to Cricut Design Space. Follow the prompts to cut the smile and eye background from the black heat transfer vinyl. Then cut the front portion of the eyes from the white heat transfer vinyl. And finally, cut the nose from the dark green heat transfer vinyl.
- Weed the unnecessary vinyl from the designs and place the smile on top of the dried painted side of the tile. Using the Easy Press Mini, affix the vinyl to the tile. Repeat affixing the remaining elements to the tile. Be sure to allow the vinyl to cool completely between each layer of vinyl to prevent the vinyl from rippling.
- Make a loop of the ribbon and hot glue the two ends in place on the back of the tile, then hang on the tree and enjoy!
