Can you believe it is May already? Only 3 weeks of school left for us, then summer vacation! YAY! I can’t wait.
Today, I have a fun May Day project to share with you. I made a few Easter Baskets and had such a great response from the recipients, that I decided to make some as May Day Baskets and give out to friends and coworkers.
I started with peat pots from the Dollar Store plus spray paint. I sprayed about 3 layers onto the pots and then started decorating.
First I added a Power Tab cut in half to the handle (wrapped wire I found at Hobby Lobby) to the outside of the handle and pressed to the inside of the peat pot.
Then I added some Multi Liquid Glue around the top edge and let it set a little bit until it was clear, then pressed moss into the glue.
To decorate the front using Mono Multi Glue, I added a precolored digital image that I printed and then colored shadows with Dual Brush Tip N75.
To finish it off I cut a square of old pattern tissue for the inside. I love using old patterns for tissue paper. I added an Avon lip balm (I buy them when they are on sale and have them on hand as they make great gifts) and some candies.
I hope this gives you some inspiration to make some May Baskets for friends, family, coworkers, etc.

OMG, this the cutest little basket ever! Hmm, I wonder if my dollar store has peat pots. Must check!
Melissa, I got mine at Dollar General if you have one of those.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
But think about if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
