Last week as we were celebrating May Faire at school, our Nature Table likewise welcomed Spring and the dancers of the season...
Some friends of mine and I made these cute table-top May Poles at a gathering we recently had. We had seen a version of this at Spring Creek Store and wanted to similarly liven up our children's play places.
I didn't take any in process photos but they were pretty simple to put together:
-The base is a chunk of branch about 1 1/2" tall with a hole drilled into the center. (Thank you Chrisi!)
-Into the hole we stuck a foot long 1/4" dowel and secured it with glue from a glue gun. (All subsequent gluing was done with the glue gun as well.)
-We then cut strips of various colored ribbons and glued each one individually onto the top of the pole.
-We embellished that tip with silk flowers then wrapped the messy stems with a broader bit of ribbon.
Voilà! Mini Maypole!
