With hot glue, attach a pom-pom (or a tassel, button or large bead) to the bottom of the cone. Buy some artificial butterflies, bees, dragonflies or little birds at the craft store (pick up extras to keep on hand, since they seem to disappear from shelves once spring is over!) and glue a few to the cone. Finally, fill it to the brim with freshly cut flowers (put the stems in water tubes, found at floral suppliers, so they stay perky) and treats like packaged candy.
Hang the finished May Day basket on a neighbor’s doorknob and, as per tradition, dash away before you are seen.
