DIY May Day Basket

DIY May Day Basket


  • Cardstock paper
  • Glue or tape
  • Chenille stems
  • Ribbon
  • Tulips and small greenery
  • Chocolates

Create your paper cone [or basket] using the cardstock. Cut the paper in half diagonally. Roll the paper together in a cone shape and either glue or tape the sides together.

While holding your cone with the pointy tip facing the ground, at the top punch a hole in each side of cone. String your ribbon through both holes and tie the ends together once your cone can swing a little.

Bend the chenille stems into funky flowers.

Then comes the fun part! Stuff all the goodies into the cone: Tulips, chocolates and other knick knacks.
