Grinch Inspired Glasses

3 Materials
1 Day

Last Christmas I started a Grinch Christmas theme at my house. These gifts, specifically the wine glasses are my favorite part of the entire thing.

I made some for gifts but I also made enough for my Christmas table setting and the entire theme was a big hit.

These are all from the Dollar Store. I have been wanting to make more with the stemless glasses but I have not seen the color lately. They do have the regular wine glasses in this color.

You also need an (affiliate link) oil based Sharpie. I used black and a gold for his eyes.

Before you get started, pull up a good pic of the Grinch so you can sort of copy the markings on his face. Here are the steps I took to make this happen.

Start with brows and eye outlines. I know he looks like an alien but stick with me.

Add some more detail to his eyes.

Draw a funny nose and a big, smiley mouth and you are almost done.

Use the yellow oil based sharpie to color in his eyes. He looks very "Grinchy" now.

Once the design is drawn you need to bake them. That's right...bake them. In the oven.

Place them on a cool cookie sheet in a cool oven. Turn the oven on to 250 degrees and bake for 2 hours. Turn of the oven and take them out when the oven is completely cool.

Be sure to hand wash them!

I even did a vase too. This was for my center piece.

For gifts I added a cello bag filled with colorful candies and for the vase I added some picks I picked up at Hobby Lobby that were very Who-Ville looking.

They were so fun and so festive. If you like a Grinch theme these are perfect to make and give and use on your table.
