When finished, set towel down on a flat surface rolled side down. Fold the loose ends over the top of the towel and roll starting from the wide end of the towel. Tuck the pointy end in between the rolls. A towel rolled tightly enough will hold together on its own once the end is tucked.

Set small Santa hat on Grinch’s head. If you were unable to find a small enough hat fold a bigger one inside of itself to shrink it to size and use safety pins to hold it at the size you want. Put strips of cotton around the ends of the red towel sleeves and neckline to make a Santa coat. Pose Grinch as desired.
