How to make The Lorax t-shirt

Download the free printable quote from The Lorax, onto t-shirt transfer paper. No need to do anything but print, I’ve already created the PDF in a mirror image so that when it’s ironed on it’s the correct way around.

Follow the directions on the HP Iron-On Transfer paper packet for correct ironing times.

Peel back the transfer paper once ironing time is complete, and there you have it, a fun new shirt to wear to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday

How to make The Lorax mustache candy lollipops

Place your candies into a microwave-safe bowl, microwave on 50% power (or the defrost setting) for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each until completely melted.

Add a lollipop stick into the mustache mold, and then spoon the melted candy into the mustache section of the mold, ensuring it covers the end of the lollipop stick too. Put the mold into the refrigerator until set, and then pop out the candy lollipops.
