As April comes to an end and May is almost at our doorstep, I wanted to share my paper flower wreath with you.
Wreath customs in Europe have survived over many centuries. The observance of May Day in England, for example, includes Maypole festivities. A race by young unmarried men to climb to the top of the Maypole to capture the May Day wreath perched at the top of the pole. The winner of this contest would wear the wreath as his crown, and would be recognized as the May Day King for the rest of the holiday.
Though my wreath is not perched at the top of a pole, it is hung on a wreath stand and displayed in my front foyer. It’s just in time for the lovely month of May.
I placed this small iron bird in a nest and propped it on top of the wreath. Just last weekend, my youngest son (Joey) found this bird outside, laying on the ground. He thought I could use it in one of my displays and he was right. It’s a little treasure that worked perfectly!
I hope you enjoyed my “Creating a Beautiful Flower Wreath” post!
