Tabletop May Pole Craft

Follow these instructions for making a May Day pole out of an empty paper towel roll.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Tape one end of your painted paper towel roll onto a small piece of cardboard so it stands up straight. Paint the paper towel roll and cardboard a bright color. Set it aside to dry.

Wrap colorful ribbon around your May pole and secure with tape. Cut lengths of ribbon to hang on the outside of your May Pole. Tape these on the inside of the top edge of the paper towel roll. If you like, you can also decorate your May pole with flowers!
