Take the two pole pieces and glue them together so that the stripes match up.
When the glue has dried roll it into a long tube and glue.
Make a hole in the top of the cone and push the cocktail stick with flag
into it, through the hole in the smaller circle of card and glue in place.
Place a line of glue around the top of the stripy maypole tube
and glue the small cone on top.
Cut your 6 pieces of ribbon to 30cm and glue them around the
inside of the cone.
Put the completed pole piece to one side.
Now to make the base.
Take your piece of thick card or cereal packet and place the
large pink circle in the centre. Draw around it with a pencil.
Put the pink circle safely to one side.
Next sketch another circle around the outside of the pencil circle
with a 2.5cm and cut out the large circle.
Make many cuts from the outside of your circle up to the inner pencil line.
Then fold these down to make your base edge.
Take your four base edge pieces (no3) and start by gluing one
around the edge. This can be a bit tricky. Glue the second piece on the
opposite side. Fill in the gaps with the other two pieces, cutting
away any overlap that covers any text.
Glue the large circle to the top.
The underneath of your base will need supporting to take the weight
of the dolls. Take your cardboard box and cut circles not greater than
23.5cm in diameter. Stack them on top of one another and glue them
together. Glue this underneath the base.
Take the maypole and run a line of glue around the bottom of the tube.
Carefully place this in the centre of the circular base (you only get the
one go at that so take your time). Allow to dry.
Take your charm bracelet card and stand and glue it in front of the
maypole, towards the front of the base. If you are lucky enough to own
a real Sindy charm bracelet then add this to the card.
Lastly spend hours choosing your favourite dolls and outfits to display
on your 1970's shop display replica. Place the name cards in front
of your dolls.
And your finished.
Please send me a picture of your finished display.
