DIY Truffula Trees or Truffula Flowers (Dr. Suess' The Lorax)



Making Truffula Trees from Dr. Suess' THE LORAX ... is super easy and SUUUPPPER CUTE!!



First things first

Purchase List

1.  Spanish Moss
2. One Large Clay Flower Pot
3.  Floral Foam Topiary with Wooden Dowel and Base
4.  Floral Tape - Brown and White
5.  Clear Tacky Glue
6.  Scissors
7.  (2) Long Boa Strands



 First wrap the wooden dowel with the White Floral Tape


The tape will stick to the dowel and there will be no need for Tacky Glue





Wrap the brown tape over the white tape leaving a gap between each wrap.




Glue along crease of the topiary foam sphere and begin wrapping your boa around the seam of the sphere.





Wrap the boa til the end finishes in the middle of the sphere.  Secure the end with tacky glue and begin wrapping the other side of the sphere.  You will have a full fuzzy top that resembles a Truffula Tree or Truffula Flower.

    1. I went to Hobby Lobby and found all of this and paid 40.00. But I only baught enough for one tree because the pot ($3), boa ($5), and topiary foam ($10) was costly. It adds up fast.
