Mum Creates Incredible Grinch Christmas Tree For Just £35
Yep, that spindly green creature created by Dr. Seuss and who famously 'stole Christmas' has taken centre stage on Laura Barrie's Christmas tree.
The tree is decorated with the classic red, white and green-coloured candy canes and baubles with glistening Christmas lights wrapped around it. Laura has even shaped the tree to look like the Grinch's hat, with fake snow along the bottom too.
You may think this festive work of art came from a movie set, but Laura snagged all the decorations from Poundland, Asda and B&M.
The realistic fluffy green Grinch mask and hands were bought from Amazon for only £12.
The fantastic tribute to the Christmas icon cost only £35 to make in total.

"I stuffed the mask, hands and Santa coat and took branches from the back of the tree and added it to the top to make it bend over," explains Laura.
Laura shared pictures of her creation to social media and was flooded with praise. The post has accumulated 32,000 likes and 7,400 comments so far.
One person wrote, "That would make me jump every time I walked in the room! Lol But looks very effective."
More people shared their positive comments, describing it as "brilliant" and responding with "I love it".
Another user added: "OMG this is what I want to do this year but can I find Grinch baubles".
The Grinch is one of the most famous Christmas characters, he was introduced to the world in the 1957 children's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Suess.
Jim Carey played The Grinch in the 2000 Christmas film How the Grinch Stole Christmas. This marked the first time a Dr. Seuss book was adapted into a full feature-length film. It proved to be very popular among audiences, and it was the second highest-grossing Christmas film of all time behind Home Alone. However, both films were surpassed in 2018 by the computer-animated adaption of The Grinch, which starred Benedict Cumberbatch.
