We all love the Lorax and want to join his tree saving campaign – now you can! A quick trip to the local craft store and you, too, will be marching for the trees.
Tools and materials
• Paint brushes
• Wooden disks
• Self-adhesive pin backs
• Fine-tip permanent marker – black
Paint the wooden disk with one solid color – I chose DecoArt paint that resembled colors used in the original The Lorax illustrations. After penciling in “I Speak For The Trees,” I followed up by painting the text using complimentary colors. I then outlined the text with a fine-tip permanent marker to really make it pop.
Flip over your freshly painted wooden disk (once it’s dry, of course) and apply your self-adhesive pin back. Be sure to apply lots of pressure to make sure it sticks.
Enjoy spreading the word by pinning your new button on a t-shirt or the lapel of your jacket! You’ll be sending a message that you really want to make a difference.
