Totem Pole from Recyclables

Picture of Totem Pole from Recyclables
This is a great Family project for Spring or Summer.  Make this fun Totem Pole from discarded plastic containers and some paint.  It's a really colorful Garden project for the whole family.  Start saving all your empty plastic milk containers and large coffee containers.  It's even a fun project to display in the house, especially in a boy's room.

What You will Need:
  • Plastic Milk Cartons  and Coffee containers
  • * Do not use plastic soda or juice containers as the plastic is too hard to cut through to insert the pole.
  • Gesso paint
  • Acrylic paints/ brushes
  • Old broom pole or PVC pipe
  • Plastic placemat ($1 from Dollar stores)
  • Sharp knife - for adult use only

This so cool! I am making one or more as soon as I get the materials. I have a full size Tipi that needs this next to it. I thank you so much for the idea, and recycling is what I love!
