We are well into April which means May Day is just around the corner! I remember as a little girl having so much fun on May Day. I used to make little flower baskets and leave them on my neighbor’s front door. I would look forward to it every year. It’s such a fun tradition and I hope to continue it with Miss E. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be surprised with fresh flowers on their porch?
As we approach this fun holiday I thought I’d put together a little May Day Gift Idea: Front Door Flower Basket Using Fresh lilies, one of my favorite flowers. Even though lilies come in a variety of colors, I absolutely love using white flowers around my home and in bouquets. I love how how white flowers are so crisp yet so elegant. They are my favorite.
Supplies Needed: – Galvanized Wall Basket/Envelope (you can find something similar here
) – 4″ Piece of burlap – Sharpie – Hot Glue Gun – Fresh lilies Start by cutting your piece of burlap into a 4″ strip. Then to create a straight edge, slightly pull off one string and then it will reveal a straight raw edge that you can trim. Repeat on both sides and trim edges.
Using a Sharpie create your design on the burlap. I drew a vintage inspired number free handed, but you could also use a stencil. The options are endless, use the initials of the person you are giving it to or say Happy May Day or even Mother’s Day.
Wrap the burlap around the basket and place a few dots of hot glue. Tie a ribbon through the holes at the top to create a handle. I used a 1″ cream satin ribbon I picked up at the dollar store.
And to finish off the basket, place a few stems of fresh lilies. I picked mine up for $4.99 a bunch at my local grocery store but you can also purchase them at almost any grocery store, garden centers, or flower shops. Gorgeous. Love them.
And now your Front Door Flower Basket is ready for a door! Surprise your neighbors with a special gift for May Day or give it to your mom for Mother’s Day. Everyone loves flowers and the basket can be used over and over again for every season.
