For a long time, I’ve needed a Grinch printable party set for our fun mini-Grinch parties that we have throughout the holiday season. The kids just love The Grinch and having a little party is definitely the way to go. These are some of my favorite Grinchmas Ideas!
Even if it’s just a fun Grinch crafting party where we make a bunch of Grinch crafts, the kids just love having green heart-filled fun.

Now, I used my Cricut to make this fun Grinch party set using the print and cut function of my Cricut Explore Air 2 and the file will work with any cutting machine that has that type of ability. But you don’t even have to have a cutting machine to make this Grinch party printable set.
You can just print this set and cut them out using your own scissors or an exacto knife. Doesn’t have to be complicated.
So, let’s get making fun Grinch Crafts!
Grinch Printable Party Set
If you’re like “wait, I just wanted to BUY some decorations for a Grinch party, not MAKE anything” I hear you. No judging here–that’s what I did for Grinch parties before I made this set. So, I pulled together some of my favorite Grinch decoration sets that will work for any Grinch party:
Nothing is easier than just having these party supplies delivered, right?!
But since I offered, maybe you’re like, “no way, I’m all in for making my own Grinch party decor”. So, for you, I’ve got an easy tutorial and a few helpful hints, too, below!

What does this printable Grinch party set include?
There’s nothing like having an awesome design for a party set and it being like two items. That’s no fun. So I went overboard and turned these designs into so many options, you can totally make a ton of awesome items to decorate with! Here’s what I made:
- Large Banner Pennants
- Tiny Banner Pennants (like what you could use for a cake banner)
- Cupcake Wrappers
- Thank You Notes
- Various Food Label Tents (both pre-made and customizable)
- Table Scatter Confetti
- Cupcake Toppers
Although you can certainly download and use these Grinch designs to make any The Grinch Who Stole Christmas party decor you might want, I know it’s helpful for you to know what I used so you can make the set just like I did:
- Quality White Card Stock Paper
- Twine or String
- Free Print-and-Cut Files (there are several of these, so scroll on down)
Yeah, and that’s it. Seriously, isn’t that awesome?!
Turning this set of Grinch party printables into actual party supplies is very easy. To make all of these things, all I needed was:
And, like I said earlier, you absolutely CAN make this whole set of Grinch party supplies without using a cutting machine. If that’s the way you’re going, all you’ll need is a pair of scissors or an exacto knife.
Tips and Tricks to Make This Grinch Party Set:
If you have a Cricut or Silhouette, grab your Grinch heart and break those out, because having a cutting machine to make these Christmas theme party supplies is going to make this whole exercise so much faster.
Just check out the easy tutorial below and you’ll have your Grinch party decorations ready in just a few minutes. But if you’re clueless about what you need to do with all these Christmas tree and Grinch printables once you have them in hand…Well, here’s some ideas to explore:
- Use the big circles with the Grinch with the tree featuring the Christmas ornament Christmas star on top for cupcake toppers by taping two on either side of a toothpick with double-stick tape.
- String your mini Grinch banner between two chopsticks to top a cake shaped like “roast beast” (What even does roast beast look like? Who knows?! LOL!).
- Stuff a handful of the Grinch table scatter into each of your party invitation envelopes like confetti. Then when your invitees open the envelope it’ll go everywhere! Too fun not to do it at least once in your life.
- Put a bunch of Christmas craft idea supplies into a basket with some table scatter and let making crafts be your party game!
And a couple of notes about cutting card stock on your cutting machine:
- Make sure you start with a clean knife. You can do that by simply wiping the blade off with some alcohol before starting. A dirty knife can make for very messy cuts and tears in your cardstock, so this is paramount.
- Press your cardstock paper down firmly to the surface of the cutting mat all over–not just around the edges of the paper. If you don’t, it’s possible that the center of the paper will pull up and your design will get caught on the blade and be messed up. This is me, speaking from experience.
Why does everyone love Grinch Christmas decorations?
Anyone who has seen the Grinch movie knows that grinch decorations are a great way to decorate the house during Christmas time. (and free printables that include Mr. Grinch and that grinch face are the best!)
The Grinch and the Grinch story are all just part of getting into the spirit of Christmas. You can create this Grinch theme easily and have a Merry Grinchmas! You could also incorporate some themed crafts and other fun ideas for this easy project.
Where is the best place to buy craft supplies?
For a lot of the Christmas crafts, you can head to the Dollar Tree or store and load up on options. It’s always a good idea to have a little bit of craft supplies on hand for personal use, because who knows what else you’re going to want to make once the crafting inspiration starts.
Once you start thinking about all the Dr. Seuss characters like Cindy Lou and the others, you just might want to try to make the perfect Grinch Christmas craft for the Christmas season. Some ideas could be a paper bag Grinch craft, or even a Grinch Christmas ornament.
Grab scissors, extra fabric, black poster board, a terra cotta pot, a cardboard piece or two, glitter, glue, paints, and see what else you can pick up for little or no extra cost. Using items around the house are always a good idea, too! You’ll have so much fun using your Christmas spirit to create some of the best Grinch ornament or decorations possible.
And don’t forget that homemade gifts are also a great gift idea. You can use your imagination, your Cricut machine, or anything else that you want to create a truly unique and epic gift idea for family and friends.
Can I reuse these free Grinch Printables?
You bet. Once you open up the Google drive, you’re in the right place. You can come back to it at any point in time and use them. You can print, and print again for next year – or use what you have and just reuse everything.
There’s nothing wrong with recycling and repurposing holiday content and printables! It’s a great way to be current with your party decorations or ideas and have one less thing to worry about for the next year. (but if you want new, come back and get it again!)
Why would someone want to throw a Grinch holiday party?
Throwing a Grinch holiday party can be a fun way to celebrate the holidays while also getting into the spirit of giving. The Grinch is a character from the Dr. Seuss book, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
In the story, the Grinch is a grumpy and selfish creature who hates the holidays. However, after he learns the true meaning of Christmas, he has a change of heart and decides to give back to those around him.
Throwing a Grinch holiday party is a great way to teach kids the importance of giving, especially during this time of year. It can also be a lot of fun decorating with green and red decorations and eating holiday-themed foods.
So if you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate the holidays, consider throwing a Grinch holiday party.
What should I serve at my Grinch party?
December is a time for celebration, and what better way to celebrate than with a Grinch-themed party? In addition to decorating with green and red streamers, consider serving some of the following Grinch-inspired dishes.
For appetizers, try serving spinach-artichoke dip in bread bowls shaped like hearts. For the main course, roast beef tenderloin with a green peppercorn sauce is sure to please.
And for dessert, what could be more festive than a towering Grinch cake made from devil’s food cake and piled high with green frosting?
With a little planning and creativity, you can throw a Grinch party that will be sure to impress your guests.
How can I make my Grinch party stand out from others?
When it comes to hosting a Grinch party, there are a few key elements that can help to set your event apart from the rest. First, consider adding some unique décor items that capture the spirit of the Grinch. Green and red streamers, hanging ornaments, and Christmas lights are all great options.
You can also bake Grinch-themed treats, such as green cupcakes with red frosting or sugar cookies in the shape of the Grinch’s head.
Another way to make your party stand out is by incorporating fun activities that get guests into the holiday spirit. A festive scavenger hunt or a showing of the classic animated movie are both great options. Of course, no Grinch party would be complete without a special appearance from the guest of honor himself!
Dressing up as the Grinch and leading guests in holiday games is sure to be a hit with young and old alike. By following these simple tips, you can host a Grinch party that will be remembered for years to come.
