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.

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.

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.

    I had to look May Day up – I didn’t know what it was! It sounds like such a cute thing to celebrate, though. I love that adorable basket arrangement.

    Around here, sadly, that pretty thing would be stolen from my front door. I live in an apartment building with a mix or owners and low income renters. BUT I would gladly have one on the inside! Then I can see it every day going “out” the door!

    I have a little metal piece just like yours hanging on a bench in the back yard. I think a little burlap will be just the ticket to dress it up for the front door.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Because wearing a collar in a long period of time will cause your dog to stop
    barking, even if there are dangerous happening to your properties such as, there are robbers trying to get into your house.

    Well, you have to take off its lid to connect it because its neck has the USB port that you need to plug into your PC’s USB
    port. There is a huge difference between a dog noticing a possible threat and a dog intent on hurting
    anyone and anything it sees.
