A woman has revealed her incredible Christmas tree design inspired by the Grinch.

After a tough year, we’re all in need of some extra festive cheer this winter.

And if you’re looking for Christmas inspiration, look no further than this amazing Grinch tree.

Created by Laura B, the amazing design sees the Dr Seuss character curling his long green fingers around the fir as he gives a menacing look.

The creative mum posted a snap of the tree into the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, explaining that it cost her just £35.

"I decided to make my own Grinch tree,” she said, explaining: “Grinch mask and hands from Amazon £12. Decorations from Poundland, Asda and B&M.

"Cost me around £35 to make.

"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.

"Not everyone’s taste but we love it."
