I am obsessed with the Grinch this Christmas and I wanted to add more Grinch to my Christmas tree. I thought another way I could do that was to is to embroider a Grinch on a hoop. I don’t do a lot of embroidery since I am a beginner but hey why not, right?
The first thing I did was print out a Grinch image which I used to trace it with embroidery paper. The paper will leave a blue stencil on the fabric. I used white fabric to do the Grinch embroidery ornament with wooden hoop. You can find most all of these material at any craft store, I did my shopping at Joann’s.
Now its time to to do the Grinch embroidery with a light green embroidery thread. I just followed the stencil.
If you want to know a little bit of the stitch I tried to used they have a very nice video here on Youtube by Amamda Rolfe
Once the Grinch was completed I colored the hoop with red sharpie. It might have been a better idea to color the hoop before but I was so excited to begin that I just skipped that part. Then I attached red tinsel around the hoop. The tinsel is from Tim Holtz holiday crafts. You can also find them at the craft store in his section. I just love everything Tim Holtz I have a stash in my closet that would last me a life time. Just don’t tell the hubby! hehe
I also hot glued the back so it would not stick out of hoop.
It is now complete, now you have your every own Grinch embroidery ornament for this holiday season. It looks great with my plaid tree and other Grinch Glass ornament I have done.
