May Day Craft Ideas

Posted by christy in Holidays | May Day | Paper | Projects | Stamping and Paper Crafts | Tutorials

Do you live in a place that celebrates May Day?  In our neck of the woods, we make May baskets.  They are small and usually filled with flowers or treats and left at someone’s doorstep. The kids love ringing the doorbell and running away.  Here are some of the projects we’ve made in the past few years.

This was one of my favorite May Day projects.  We made a cone out of scrapbook paper and filled it with pixie sticks.  We made the pixie sticks look like flowers by adding some punched scallops and circles.  I also used some fun stamps to embellish the flowers.  I punched a hole in the back of the cone and added an eyelet to thread the ribbon through.  Super easy to make!

We made these little matchbook favor boxes last year for May Day.  Here is the tutorial on how to make those.

This year I haven’t decided on what we’re going to make for our baskets.  I have a feeling fabric and felt will be be involved.  I’ll be sure to post the finished results.

Speaking of finished results…want to know the winner of the April Craft Challenge?
