May Baskets
Found at
Gingerbread Grandma’s Cauldron

Materials:

  • Paper doily or other paper cut in a 9" circle
  • Stapler or glue
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • Small fresh cut flowers with stems about 4" long
  • Paper towel
  • A piece of aluminum foil or plastic wrap

Cut a slit in the paper from one edge to the center of the circle. Overlap the cut edges and twist the paper so that a cone is formed. Staple or glue the edge to hold the cone shape. Punch holes on opposite sides of the top of the cone. Form hooks on both ends of the pipe cleaner and put the ends through the punched holes to form a handle. Twist the ends of the pipe cleaner around so that they stay in the holes. Dampen the paper towel and squeeze out most of the extra water. Wrap the ends of the flower stems with the paper towel, then wrap with the aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Slide the wrapped flowers into the cone.

On Beltane morning, hang the May basket on the doorknob of friends or neighbors. Ring the doorbell and hide to watch your friend’s reaction to the flowers. : )
