Indians Totem pole crafting - with printables


It was actually supposed to make a totem pile, but after emptying a bus of pringles, we realized that a bus pringles would actually be much more suitable. Luckily we had saved a second bus before, so the 2 drawn and colored wrappers went around it. Don't you have two empty chip tubes? Then the template also fits perfectly to a kitchen roll!

Method:

  • Color the templates, for example with Crayola wax crayons.
  • Cut the upper edge and lower edge.
  • Stick to each bus a template. You can do that with some adhesive tape on the back. Make sure the bottom closes, at the top there is a slice left.
  • Using a stick stick, stick the template with the “wings” on a piece of cardboard, e.g. a cereal packaging.
  • Cut out the wings but leave them in the middle by a few cm (see example)
  • Stick the 3 wings to the back of the roll with adhesive tape (see example)
  • Pour a piece of paper into both cans, and put some green paper strings on top. (These paper strings are still some Easter decorations) Tip: Do you happen to have a shredder? That's a great solution if you shred some green paper in it.
  • Put the 2 cans on top of each other, if it's okay, it fits nicely, thanks to the raised paper edge.

Do you want to draw a pattern for a totem pole yourself? That must be much more fun! Then make sure that you first divide the upright A4 paper into 3 horizontal compartments. Draw a vertical line exactly in the middle of the sheet. Now you know where to get the “faces” among themselves. Keep that vertical line and fantasize about it. Do you send a photo to ilse@deknutseljuf.nl? Because of course we are very curious about your totem pole!
