DIY Lorax Costume

DIY Lorax Costume

We’ve been celebrating all things Dr. Suess in my house all week and crafting like crazy.  Tonight we are reading The Lorax and then watching the movie, so the kids are excited to be wearing their DIY Lorax Costume.

I love that The Lorax is not only just an adorable story, it also shares a critically important message with our children about caring for our environment. 

With Dr. Suess’s Birthday just days away, I thought I’d share this quick easy craft that will turn your kids into Loraxes with just a few supplies.

Lorax Costume Materials:

Yellow sunglasses
Yellow craft foam
Large craft pom pom
Striped paper straw
Hot glue gun
Scissors

Lorax Costume Instructions:

Using your yellow glasses as a guide, cut out a Lorax mustache from the yellow craft foam. This does not have to be exact or perfect. You want it to follow the natural curve of the bottom of the glasses, as that is where it will eventually be glued. The top of the mustache can be a wide “m” shape, and the bottom can just be a random series of jagged cuts. See the photo for reference on what this should look like.

Use the top of your glasses as a guide to cut out two Lorax eyebrow shapes from the yellow craft foam. You can trace the natural curve of the glasses if it helps, and then just add a few jagged cuts in an arch to form the bushy eyebrows.

Using a hot glue gun, attach the mustache shape to the front of the bottom of the sunglasses.

Use glue to attach the two eyebrows to the front of the top of the sunglasses, one on each side.

Attach a large craft pom pom to the top of a striped paper straw with hot glue. This will be the truffula tree prop for your Lorax costume.
