May Day crafts are fun to make, but this one is also fun to give away. These flower cones are traditionally left as a surprise on someone's door as a springtime greeting. Here's how to make your own May Day Flower Cone for that special someone.
What You'll Need:
Roll a piece of pretty paper into a cone shape, and glue the edges together to seal it. When the glue has dried, punch two holes on opposite sides of the cone.
Tie the ends of a piece of ribbon through each of the holes to make a handle. Gather some fresh flowers. Put a wet paper towel around the flower stems and cover the towel with a plastic bag.
Tie ribbon around the plastic bag to seal it, and set the flowers inside the decorative cone. Hang the cone on a family member's bedroom doorknob or on the front door of a neighborhood friend.
