Next Monday is May Day, and this year I’m featuring a new printable and twine basket craft. This is a gift tag featuring a cute flower arrangement in a mason jar.  The printable has six color combinations so you can have fun mixing and matching them with your baskets.  If you need to make some baskets, I have a cute basket craft made from empty yogurt cups and twine that looks perfect with the printable.  The possibilities of what you can do with these baskets are endless…you can fill the cups up with candy, you can punch a few holes in the bottom of the cup and add a plant, etc.  If you want to see other May Day ideas, check out my May Day posts from previous years: Printable May Day Gift Tag and Caramel Puffcorn, Free May Day Printables, and May Day Basket Ideas.



To make the May Day baskets, start by taking empty yogurt cups and punching a hole in each side.

Then tie a piece of string through the holes to make a handle.

Now take your hot glue gun and glue the twine around the cup while wrapping the twine around it. Use a popsicle stick or spoon to push the twine up to avoid burning your fingers since the glue is hot.  Note, an adult should do this step if children are helping out.

Once you cut the string, you’re done with the basket.   Now attach your free printable. This is a great way to create fun gifts and recycle plastic yogurt cups.
