Cinco de Mayo is May 5, and today I’m revisiting several colorful Cinco de Mayo crafts I first shared a few years ago. I did just a bit of research about Cinco de Mayo and did you know it’s celebrated more in the U.S. than in Mexico? It’s primarily a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture, so anyone and everyone can partake of a little fun next Monday. (And I also learned that Cinco de Mayo means “the fifth of May”.) I have a little giveaway news, too.
The colors are so festive, and making the tissue paper flowers couldn’t be easier. I hope you’ll go check out these Cinco de Mayo decorations and throw a little fiesta!
Don’t forget you have till midnight on Thursday, May 1, to enter another giveaway for one dozen, 4″ balls of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam. Read about it over on the post for making Vintage Rag Balls.
Thursday is also May 1 or May Day. Delivering May Day bouquets, like the sweet, springtime tussy mussies below, is a May Day tradition. If you’d like to start your own May Day tradition, go take a peek at the tutorials to make these pretty spring bouquets.
