Making Gypsy Wagons in Room 9. Mr. Knight’s fifth class.

We made gypsy wagons in our class over the past few weeks. It took a while but it was worth it. Here is the procedure:

You will need:  Lollipop sticks.

PVA glue.


Decorations such as glitter and diamonds.

Beer mats.

  1. Get eleven lollipop sticks and glue them together in a square shape.
  2. On the edge of the lollipop sticks, glue one lollipop stick across the others to hold them together. Do the same on the other end.
  3. On the right hand side of the base (which has no lollipop sticks) glue one lollipop stick to it and do the exact same on the other side.
  4. Keep going in that pattern until each side is six lollipops tall and make sure they are glued.
  5. When the base is dry, put two beer mats in the base and put a broken lollipop stick to hold the mats to the base.
  6. After you have done that, glue around five lollipop sticks to the top of the beer mats and wait for them to dry.
  7. Keep doing this until the top of your wagon is covered. Wait until it has dried.
  8. When it has dried, turn your wagon so that it’s on its side and cut out two circles out of a beer mat. Glue the two circles to the base so it looks like wheels.
  9. When the wheels have dried, feel free to paint the wagon whatever colours you want.
  10. When the paint has dried you’re all set and your wagon is DONE!!!
