In Hawaii, May Day is a little from the states. It's celebrated with flowers, but in a different way. We string them up in a lei and wear them around our necks. You can also give them to someone as a gift. Here's more info on how it's celebrated in Hawaii
This was my entry for this weeks Tuesday Alchemy challenge! I've been making this for 15 plus years now, for all different occasions. Even 400 for a party once. I make it for graduations, and am starting to make some for a family reunion coming up. Each family will be sorted by color, so that is the color lei they will receive. This is very easy to make and very economically friendly on your wallet as well! :) It's made with craft foam, beads and ribbons. It takes about 40 or so flowers to make a decent length lei. If you want to get creative and put more than 1 flower you can do that as well. I've done some with 1 big in the middle and 2 smalls on the outside. It looks awesome, but does take a lot more time and materials. String everything to your liking and tie it up. Add a tag with a special sentiment and you're done! It's fun and the brightness makes you feel happy! I'm glad that I was able to use this for this weeks challenge!
