TO MAKE: Roll your paper into a cone and add a strip of glue to hold the cone shape. Trim off the excess paper, and then trim the bottom so it will sit level. Glue three toothpicks into the opening on top to look like teepee poles.

What materials do you need to make a wigwam?
- soft, pliable sticks such as willow branches or #6 round basket reeding (two long strands; one package will make about 10 wigwams, or do basketry, too)).
- 1 rectangular sheet of 1/2 “x 12″ x 36″ styrofoam for a base (or 1/2” thick corrugated cardboard)
- 50 lengths of string about 6″ long.
How do you cover a wigwam?
Canvas was used to cover wigwams starting in the late 1700s. Use a sheet of birch or elm bark, or a cattail mat, to cover the smoke hole (propped up on one side against prevailing winds or rain), and use a cattail mat or hide to cover the door.
How long does it take to build a wigwam?
A typical wigwam will take about 1 to 3 weeks to complete, depending on how much help you have and how detailed you want it to be. A wigwam is not the same as a tepee. A wigwam is semi-permanent. A tepee is portable, like a tent.
