DIY Snowy Grinch Tree for Christmas

Your heart will grow three sizes this season with our snowy Grinch tree! The main component of this planter is broom, because it’s a lovely green and also pliable! We also use fir to add colour and texture to the design.

Start with a large pot full of potting soil (we use a 12″ terra cotta pot). Securely plant your broom branches, then surround them with layers of fir. Use heavy wire to bind up the branches and create a conical shape.

We insert aluminum wire into the top of the tree and connect the broom to it, so that we can bend the top of the design into that “curly” seussical look. To finish off the design we thread snowflakes and other ornaments onto wire, which we wrap around the tree to easily decorate your Grinch tree!

Enjoy making your own Grinch Tree and becoming an honorary Whoville resident this Christmas!
