Friday Inspiration: Spread The Love With May Day Baskets

May 1st sneaked up on me this year. I had every intention of making several May Day Baskets for my neighbors but I didn't. So it seems I need to throw something together fairly quickly. Thankfully I stumbled across this post from Homey Oh My. She used her little flower bundles as Valentine gifts but they would work perfect for a May Day Baskets!

First bundle together small bunches of flowers with a rubber band.
Next lay the flower bundle on one of the corners of a square sheet of tissue paper.
Wrap a second time with stiff paper like Kraft Paper and tie with a ribbon.
You could punch a couple of holes at the top and add a loop to hand the flowers on a door knob.
