But today we are going to talk the flowery kind of May Day. Here in Greece, Tradition dictates that we go out into the fields and pick flowers. We then make a wreath and hang it on our doors.
Last year shared my May Day wreath. That happens to be my favorite wreath ever! I knew that there was no way to try and top myself so this year I gave myself a new challenge. I wanted to incorporate something into the wreath that we all have at home. And help the earth while I was at it.
I’ll be sharing with you how to make May Day Wreaths with recycled materials.
- branches or vines from nature
- a piece of wire, or a wire hanger
- a mesh bag,
- a ribbon
This year I went to the farm a few days early to gather some vines.
The How – To
Take a piece of wire and shape it into a circle. My wire was very thin so I wrapped it around itself to make it a bit thicker. But if you use a wire hanger I’m sure it will be fine.
I just kept wrapping until it became a thick wreath.
I hope you have all enjoyed my simple tutorial of a May Day Wreath made with recycled materials.
This wreath will cost you nothing to make. No running to the dollar store or anywhere. Let’s all look to mother nature to give us her beauty and we can give back by reusing items such as that mesh bag.
What recycled item will you add to your wreath?
