Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax Mini Yarn Pom

We’re having too much fun with Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax! What a fun character to craft. He’s got such a great color and features, I’m excited about today’s craft. It’s a yarn pom-pom Lorax, super cute and miniature!

He stands up for the Truffula Trees, as someone needs to “speak for the trees”.

Here’s how we made our Lorax Yarn Pom…

For the supply list and instructions, follow the slides:

  • Supplies 1 of 10
    - Yarn, enough to wrap around 60-70 times - scissors - 2x4 inch piece of cardboard - 1 pipe cleaner, I used two for different colors - 2 googly eyes - glue
  • Step 1 2 of 10
    Step 1
    Bend your cardboard in half lengthwise. You want to have a space in the center for your yarn. Wrap your yarn around the cardboard about 60-70 times, depending on how "fat" you want your Lorax.
  • Step 2 3 of 10
    Step 2
    Cut a 3-4 inch piece of yarn. Cut your pipe cleaner in half, you will only need 1 half for now.
  • Step 3 4 of 10
    Step 3
    Take a small 3-4 inch piece of yarn and thread it through the opening in the cardboard. Tie it in a knot around the top of the yarn to hold it all together.
  • Step 4 5 of 10
    Step 4
    Once the top is tied off, slide the pipe cleaner through cardboard opening as well. Slide the wrapped yarn and the pipe cleaner off the cardboard. Twist the pipe cleaner around itself to tie off the bottom of the yarn ball.
  • Step 5 6 of 10
    Step 5
    Get your other half of pipe cleaner ready. (FYI, I used two different colors of pipe cleaners for the Lorax mustache and legs.)
  • Step 6 7 of 10
    Step 6
    Wrap the pipe cleaner around the top half of the yarn ball and twist. This will give the pom head and body shapes.
  • Step 7 8 of 10
    Step 7
    Twist and bend your pipe cleaner into a mustache for the Lorax. Then cut two more small centimeter pieces of pipe cleaner for the eye brows and get your 2 googly eyes ready.
  • Step 8 9 of 10
    Step 8
    Glue on your eyes and eye brows to the top of the yarn pom, forming the Lorax face.
  • Now You Have It 10 of 10
    Now You Have It
    You're cute mini Lorax pom is ready for playtime!
