Today is May Day! I have always wanted to participate in the holiday! For those of you who are not aware of the May Day tradition, here is a quick breifing taken from A Field Journal:
"Chapter IV: May Day" in The Original Girls Handy Book (a reprint of a book published in 1887), had a few things to say about "a very pretty custom observed in Merrie England of fastening bunches of flowering shrubs and branches upon the doors of neighbors." The author writes of the (then) surviving tradition in New England, of "hanging upon the door-knobs of friends spring-offerings in the shape of small baskets filled with flowers."
Here is my inspiration for a container (I followed their tutorial in the link below):
