How to Make May Day Bundles
With our big May Day extravaganza coming up, I want to share a few ways that you can very easily and affordably DIY some garden gifts.
Keywords here are: easy and affordable. My hope is that your time and effort are in the joy of gifting, not of making this a perfect pretty thing. Done is better than perfect after all. I typically raid my own craft closet, and have been known to cut up old linen drapes to make bundle supplies. Very Gone with the Wind vibes.
It’s all about the feelings you’re giving, not the packaging. However, I know some of you will have chic and gorgeous bundles and I love that too!
There are infinite ways to package up flowers, but these three have been easiest for me.
- The Classic Bundle
This is mostly what you see me do, and what I actually do, because I like the rustic bouquet look and it’s so easy, plus keeps the flowers and veggies fresh.
2. Little Basket Bundles
These are perfect for gifting fruit, berries, and baked goods. So cute and easy – you simply just thread a ribbon through the basket and place a piece of cloth or tissue paper in to fancy it up.
I got these baskets on Amazon and love to use them to gift extra tomatoes and things that are hard to make a bouquet out of.
3. Cone Bundles
These cute little cones are perfect for hanging on door handles! They are much more nostalgic May Day in my mind and are perfect for some little wildflowers.
I used thick double-sided tape for this and LOVE it.
I hope these encourage you to think about what you have in the craft closet, and what will work easily for you. Whether you forage, grow, or buy your goodies – it’s good enough! I can’t wait to hear about all the smiling faces of neighbors and friends who receive your sweet gifts!
