How to make this Truffula Tree Craft


STEP 1: Get your supplies ready


Before you begin making this truffula tree craft prepare all your supplies. To avoid getting pen marks on your work surface lay out a scrap piece of paper to work on. When choosing the colours for your embroidery threads you could either look at 'The Lorax' and match you colours to those used in the book, or just pick your favourite colours!

STEP 2: Make a pom pom


To make the top of the truffula trees wrap embroidery thread around three fingers. Carefully slide the thread off your fingers and tie the end around the center into a double knot. Then cut the loop on each side.

STEP 3: Construct truffula tree


This part will need to be done by an adult. Squirt some hot glue on the top of your yellow and black craft stick and stick the coloured thread pom pom on top. Move the pieces around to make the tree look more full.
