Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax Party Mask

The new movie Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax releases in theaters on March 2, and I’m thrilled to be doing some crafts to celebrate! Speaking of celebrations, I recently made The Lorax and truffula tree cupcake toppers for a Dr. Seuss party. This mask was created as another party favor to coordinate! Children will love sporting their Lorax mask, and if you can believe it, it only cost me $2 to make. The wood base was actually a frog mask from the $1 bin at Jo-Ann Stores, and the foam sheets were $.50 a piece. With some cutting and glue, I whipped up a Lorax party mask in no time. Older children can even make one for themselves. Click through the jump to see how this fun mask came together!

  • Gather Your Supplies 1 of 8
    Gather Your Supplies
    I used a $1 wood mask from Jo-Ann stores, 2 sheets of craft foam in orange and yellow, scissors, a pen and craft glue.
  • Trace the Mask 2 of 8
    Trace the Mask
    My wood mask was a frog, the perfect shape for a Lorax face. I traced the mask onto the orange foam, including the eyes. I added a little bit of "cheek" on either side to make it look more like the Lorax's face.
  • Start Cutting 3 of 8
    Start Cutting
    Carefully cut out the eyes just inside the pen lines (do this so that you can't see the wood mask behind the foam).
  • Draw the Mustache 4 of 8
    Draw the Mustache
    I freehand drew a mustache onto the yellow foam. Make sure your mustache is the right size for the face before cutting out.
  • Cut the Foam 5 of 8
    Cut the Foam
    Cut your foam with scissors. The nice thing about foam is that it's easy for children to cut!
  • Glue Mask 6 of 8
    Glue Mask
    Add quite a bit of glue to the wood mask and adhere the orange face. Let dry.
  • Add Mustache 7 of 8
    Add Mustache
    Glue the moustache and hair down with craft glue. Let dry.

    Have Fun!
    Enjoy your Lorax mask? Does mine make me look cross-eyed (kinda)?
