Kmart shopper praised for Grinch-inspired Christmas tree: 'Amazing'

A Kmart shopper has gone viral on social media after sharing her unique Christmas tree inspired by the classic holiday story How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Posting a photo of her creation in a popular Facebook group, the woman explained that she had purchased a slim pencil tree online and used chicken wire and garland from Kmart to make it bend at the top.

She then bought decorations from Kmart, Spotlight, Myer and Christmas Elves, including large red, white and green baubles, candy canes, and other embellishments.

To tie in the Dr. Seuss theme, she also purchased Grinch gloves online, used Santa hat chair covers as sleeves and chicken wire to stick them on either side of the tree.

The end result is a glittery, eye-catching Christmas tree that looks like the Grinch is standing behind it with his arms wrapped around it.


The creator said she was “beyond stoked” with how it looked when posting it online.

“My Grinchmas/Whoville tree vision came to life thanks to the amazingly cheap garland from Kmart (and reluctant cooperation from the bf),” she wrote.

It didn’t take long for the post to rack up thousands of likes and hundreds of positive comments from people praising her creativity and hard work.

“This is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen,” one person wrote, followed by another who said, “I’m gobsmacked”.

“I hate the Grinch but this is amazing!” a third added, while someone else said, “This is my kind of Christmas tree”.


“This is so cool, you could sell them!” a different user replied, with another writing, “This is literally epic. Can you come over and do me one?”

The post also inspired plenty of others to try and make their own Grinch-inspired Christmas tree, with people either asking for a tutorial or sharing photos of their own creations.
