The May Baskets are mostly done. I am waiting for some of the decoupage to dry. My desk is full! I believe the final count is twenty. I ran out of sherbert containers and had to use two red plastic glasses.
We recycled this year. Sherbert containers. I cut the tops off and made a decorative edge. Then Far Guy took them to the woodshop/greenhouse and spray painted them with left over spray paint. One is yellow, but yellow took three days to dry so the rest are red and orange. I punched holes for the fancy pipe cleaner. I used the Sizzix to cut out letters for the names. They are decoupaged onto the container. Then I added a bit of white tissue paper and filled with candy, I also made paper flowers to hold a Tootsie Pop.
I think they are real cute.
Once a year I get to play with paper and make something out of nothing and make some little kids smile.
We will deliver them later today. I will try to get some photos!
Happy May Day!!
I have celebrated this day since I was about 2 years old. Baskets were made and delivered almost every May 1st for as long as I can remember.
