I have always been a big fan of whimsy and color! Dr. Seuss’s work definitely fits in that category, and has inspired me to make Thing 1 and 2 wigs, among other wacky projects! This time I made giant colorful trees, inspired by Truffula trees in the classic story The Lorax.

These trees would be perfect for creating a magical setting for a summer camp! I can just picture camper’s faces lighting up as they walk by these brightly colored “trees”. Teachers and schools can also tape these to walls or attach them to bulletin boards to create decor for National Read Across America Day, also referred to as Seuss Week. These DIY trees would also make a fun scene for performances or as part of a colorful photo booth!

If you are going for  Seuss theme for camp, school, or a party, then you will love my DIY Cat in the Hat Costume! The no sew hat is made using Oly-Fun fabric.
