Grinchmas in Perdooville

The Grinchmas theme we did for Christmas this year was beyond fun and maybe a little over the top! I just bought a Cricut Maker and went crazy with vinyl and utilizing the Grinched font. What a blast it was turning our Perdue Pad into Perdooville – if only I could keep these decorations up forever!

Perdooville Trees

For the drooping trees, I utilized fake Christmas trees, which were easy to shape. I extended the end of the large one with garland. Our main tree was a live tree we picked and cut down ourselves (it was much larger than we had thought – definitely Griswold size). I followed this blog to create the Truffula trees, spray painted the black pipe insulation white, and wrapped with red & green festive ribbon. I used my Cricut Maker to cut white poster board for all the wacky Whoville trees that lined the wall. I cut stars and dots with my Cricut to embellish the trees.

Chair of Cheer & Holiday Cheermeister

I bought some red chair covers and printed the “Chair of Cheer” and “Holiday Cheermeister” vinyl decals with my Cricut Maker in the Grinched font. For the Cheemeister crown, I used green & red garland, red berries, and gold ornaments.

Grinch Centerpieces

I had lots of fun cutting Grinch faces with my new Cricut Maker, and put his glare on everything. I had extra polka dots so decided to put these on some of the bottles. I found the green, white & red stemmed limbs and balls at Michaels/Hobby Lobby. I inserted the stemmed items in all my painted wine bottles, and the loose balls around the outer part of a silver platter.

Mantle & Bannisters

I love deco mesh and utilized this on the mantle, bannisters, bows and trees. All the decorative stems with candy/balls I got from Michaels/Hobby Lobby. I bought festive socks to hang along the mantle, and put vinyl polka dots on our normal red stockings. For the stacked presents, I utilized a garden stake to stabilize them. I used my Cricut to print the letters for the signs. The signs were manually cut out of cardboard & spray painted (probably could have cut these with the Cricut too).

Grinch’s Lair

The Grinch and Max took over Santa’s sleigh on top of Mount Crumpit this year! I even found a stick from the yard and tied in to Max’s head. 🙂 I also had a striped cat tie that I put on the Grinch, which was inspired by the new Grinch movie. I was able to make a massive Santa sack by filling a red pillow case with cotton. We had fun putting decals on the toilet too!

Photo Props

I found a bunch of Grinch images on Google and edited them in Photoshop to create photo props.

Cindy Lou Who

I was so excited to dress up as Cindy Lou Who! I bought the cape, dress and tights on Amazon. I got my hair to stand up using a styrofoam cone and used wire in my braids

Grinch Juice

I used a green punch I’ve used in the past for St. Patty’s (adjusted color with green dye). Using my Cricut, I cut out fun phrases to put on all the glasses. Made the glasses super festive by lining rims with red sugar and using red & white striped or polka dot straws.

Grinchmas Feast

We served two Grinchmas feasts, which we slightly varied based on attendees. I created the menu and placecards in Photoshop with the Grinched font. Here are links to some of the recipes:
