How to Make a Grinch Jello Snack Cup

First, you’ll need to gather a few basic supplies. Most importantly, you’ll need a snack cup of green Jello.

You’ll also need a Sharpie, red pom pom, small white pom pom, a small strand of white yarn, scissors, googly eyes, and a low temperature hot glue gun (or craft glue). I bought a large pack of assorted pom poms and googly eyes that I use for a variety of craft projects.

Step 1 – Give Grinch a Pair of Eyes

Set the Jello cup upside down in front of you and glue on two googly eyes. Don’t position them too close to the top because we’ll need room to draw in the eyebrows.

Step 2 – Draw the rest of Grinch’s Face

Draw an upside down “V” above each eye for the eyebrows. Then, make a small heart for the nose, with a line extending down. Finish his smile.

Step 3 – Add a Hat

Next, glue a red pom pom to the top for the base of the hat. Then, glue a smaller white pom pom to the red pom pom, placed slightly to the side.

Step 4 – Finishing Touch

Now you just need to wrap the bottom of the red pom pom with a few layers of white yarn to form the brim of the hat. Attach the yarn with glue.
