Update on the Dr. Seuss Truffula (Lorax) Tree Project

Dr. Seuss Truffula Trees from Lomax

Here's one of the finished Truffula trees for my grandson's party. Right now it has to be propped up until the stands are made to hold it upright. I'm not going to support the entire trunk. I want it to lean slightly, so the wooden dowels being inserted in the 6 foot tubing will be cut into 4 1/2 feet lengths.

The shorter trees will be made with 4 foot tubing and the dowel inserts will be cut to 3 feet. My post about making the trees is found here.

Sure hope it doesn't rain the day of the party. Tissue paper isn't exactly waterproof. I do have an indoor plan B, just in case.

OMG! That is such an adorable idea, and you can tell how much love, effort and work you've put into. He is going to have so much fun at his party. =)

Thanks, Anne-Marie, for sure I'm a nut case when it comes to my grandkids. But what a joy they bring to my life!
