I Speak for the Trees, Truffula Trees That Is… A Mini Tutorial

My weekend posts are usually link love posts on something I’m obsessing about that other people have already done…. But this weekend, I’m still totally obsessing about The Lorax… I didn’t get to see it on Friday, but we’re going this Friday for our Mommie and Max Friday Movie Date!

ok, remember the poofs that I’m in love with? The ones I used the other day for the Lorax mask? Well, they make perfect mini Truffula Trees as well!

I got the orange poofs for the mask and, like I mentioned, went back to find more orange ones, but instead got all sorts of colors because the other thing I was when I look at these little poofs is Truffula Trees!

This is really just a mini tutorial. actually I don’t even know if it counts technically as a tutorial, but…

The materials I used were simple. Poofs, the wood sticks, or pencils, yellow, white and black paint and a paintbrush. First I painted the sticks yellow and then painted the little black lines. Next, just twist the poof around the top and Wahla, you have a mini little Truffula tree! I mean how easy is that??

You can make a little Truffula Tree scene decoration…

You can make Truffula Tree pencils for the sketcher or writer in your world….

Or they can be a beautiful bouquet!

What else would you do with your Truffula Trees? Cake Toppers! That would be cool…. What else?? My son loves them as Truffula Tree Wands…. hmmmm… anything else?

And if you’re looking to make more life-size Truffula Trees, don’t miss this other (real) tutorial I made! Yes, I do LOVE Dr Seuss and all his characters, but especially The Lorax!

Shared with these link parties!

Update: The poofs! I’ve had a lot of questions asking about the poofs for the mini trees. I got mine in the floral deptartment at JoAnn’s. I’ve found this link to buy poofs on etsy. These aren’t exactly what I used. The ones I used had elastic in them. These could be used with a little hot glue and the poofs, wrapped around. You can also just google Feather Poofs and you’ll find other options for purchase.
