May Day Baskets--All Finished and Filled!

Last week, I started my students on a May Day basket project. Today we finished our baskets and filled them with paper flowers.

Cute, huh?!

To make the flowers is simple. If you ever helped make a float for high school homecoming, 4th of July parade, or something like that, do what you did then. If you never did any of those things, do this:

Take 4 squares of tissue paper.

The squares can be any size, really, but ours were about 4" square. Stack them neatly and fold them accordian-style.

Tie a pipe cleaner in the middle of the paper accordian.

Gently pull each piece of tissue to the center and then fluff to your liking.

See? Easy!
