I’ve always wanted to do something fun for May 1st. We in Indy like to say “It’s Gonna Be May” in the tune of N’Sync and we kind of have a big month — ya know, we host that thing called the Indianapolis 500! So this year, like with most of my projects, I planned it out way in advance and still waited ’til the last minute. I figured May Day Bouquets but with an Indy 500 twist would work be a super cute and fun springtime neighbor gift! Here’s how I made my May Day Bouquets with a little Indy 500 flair.
First, just know these don’t have to be super big. I was inspired by the May Day bouquet made by Sierra Miller which you can see here, but knew it wasn’t going to be that big and wanted to be small enough to be able to make for multiple neighbors.
You’ll need the following:
A cone container
Printable Flags – optional
I used the following products:
Checkered Scrapbook Paper
My Indy 500 Printable Flags – You can find them here
Hot Glue & Gun
An Assortment of Flowers
First, cut the scrapbook pieces of paper in half.
Then fold the paper to create the cone. Add tape to hold the shape and punch one hole in each side to
Next, gather your blooms. I used a greenery sprig, baby’s breath, camomille, and mini roses. I used about one sprig of each.

Then, wet your paper towel, squeeze out the excess water and wrap around the bottom parts of your stems. After that, wrap the plastic baggie around and tie with twine. I used ziplocs and then cut off the tops, but only because I couldn’t find unzippered sandwich baggies.
Once you’ve got this done, pop it in the cone and next you’ll add your accents!
After that, you just need to add your own little tag saying whatever you’d like! I went with
Happy May Day!
Then I grabbed some checkered flags I made from the printables and added it to the front of the bouquet with a mini clothespin!
