Recycled May Day Baskets

Surprise Me!

We are celebrating Earth Day by getting a head start on our May Day Baskets.


We used tall tin cans (the ones pasta sauce comes in), a coat hanger for the handle, a piece of brown paper grocery bag cut with scalloped scissors and a piece of twine. The cans would be extra sweet with a scrap of pretty scrapbook paper, or fabric and pretty ribbon tied around the middle or you could  paint the can. We pierced holes for the handles by nailing a nail in each side of the can.

maydaycan2Make the handle long (ours was about 18 inches) so it will fit over a door knob when filled with flowers.
