Based on the Dr.Seuss book of the same name, the Lorax movie revolves around a mystical creature who serves as the guardian of a forest – of truffula trees.
These trees are not just any trees. They’re made of the fluffiest material in the land, even softer than silk.
And now you can create your very own iconic truffula trees with these fun and colorful crafts.
1. All Truffula Crafts
The most characteristic part of the truffula trees, aside from the fact they’re made of the most exquisitely soft material, is that they are wonderfully vibrant and colorful.
