The three days of May Day are just around the corner and many people have planned to visit nearby destinations.
Regardless of whether you go away or not, tradition calls for making a wreath and hanging it on the front door of the house (and not only) on May Day.
How to make your own yeast wreath
The Mayan wreath is usually made with a stick of flexible and durable wood around which the flowers are supported.
To make your own yeast wreath you will need the following:
- Branches or wire
- Scissors or pruning shears
Yeast wreath: base
The Yeast Wreath base is the A’s and Z’s for a beautiful Yeast Wreath. They must be made of flexible ivy, willow, olive or vine branches. Of course, you have the option of a ready-made base that you can buy from a florist.
If you go to a nearby park, collect lots of greenery or branches with leaves. Join them together in bunches and secure them with the twine. Your goal is to cover the base with greenery creating a lush green wreath. Remember that the bunches must be in the same direction and not the other way around.
This is probably the most difficult and time consuming part of the yeast crown. Decorating with flowers is much easier.
You make them in bunches and fasten them in the same way as the greens. If you don’t have a lot, decorate the wreath in just a few places.
Yeast wreath: decoration
In your wreath you can put any flower you like or manage to collect: daisies, roses, chamomile, lavender, these are just some of what you will find in the fields this season.
