Create a buzz this May Day with easy-to-make flower baskets.

Materials

  • Construction paper
  • Stapler
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Torn strips of yellow paper
  • Tape or glue
  • Pom-poms
  • Googly eyes

Instructions

  1. Hold a sheet of black construction paper with the shorter ends at the top and bottom. Starting at the lower right-hand corner, roll the sheet into a cone and tape or staple the overlap. Trim the top to create a rounded head on the front side.
  2. Form antennae by folding a pipe cleaner in half, stapling the bend to the back side of the head, then curl each tip around a small black pom-pom.
  3. Create stripes by wrapping torn strips of yellow paper around the cone and gluing them in place. Tape or glue on paper wings and a heart-shaped paper face complete with a drawn mouth and glued-on pom-pom eyeballs topped with googly-eye pupils.
  4. For a hanger, make holes in opposite sides of the cone a half inch from the top. Thread a length of ribbon through the holes from inside the cone and tie each end into an overhand knot.
