Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
The stand calls for 3/4 inch PVC; not CPVC. Because if you try to mix and match, it won't fit.
This is the breakdown:
4 - 6" long PVC
4 - 2 1/2" long
2 - 3" long
2 - 1 1/2" long
7 - 45 degree couplers
3 - T couplers
3 - straight couplers
Step 2: Put It All Together
This is the easy part... look at the pictures... if you can't see them, i can't really explain the process without them.
Step 3: You Should Be Finished
with the completed stand, you can put big, or little puppets on the stand for pictures, or on shelves... paint the stand with plastic paint, but be sure not to get some of the ends painted together. if it is to be adjustable, it doesn't help if it is (glued) together with paint.
Also with this, if you keep the base together; take apart some of the pieces to reconfigure it to your liking...
Hope this helps,
